Polka Theatre (and Theatre Workshops)
Polka Theatre is one of the few venues in the UK which is dedicated to producing and presenting work for young audiences. At Polka children aged 0 to 14 enjoy a wide-range of experiences designed to make theatre a natural part of their lives. Polka Theatre for the very young is a vital part of Polka’s artistic programming. Over the past few years Polka has developed its Early Years work and established itself as a centre for innovation in this field. Children as young as 9 months and their families are brought into a colourful and stimulating environment where simple stories are told in a sensory and visual way. Early Years shows also visit Polka from across Europe encouraging the telling of a diverse range of stories in a varied and exciting way.

For our main house shows we offer one show in the schedule that is a Relaxed Performance.
Relaxed performances are specifically aimed to appeal to families with children who are on the autistic spectrum or have sensory sensitivities. To prepare you for your visit to Polka we have put together a Picture information strip to help you prepare for your visit to the theatre and and a synopsis for each performance, this is to help you understand the story that you are about to see and to know what to expect during the performance. On arrival you will be greeted by our friendly Front of house team who are there to support you on your visit.
We have adapted the show slightly by having fewer people watching the show and you can also choose which seat you sit in. We have lowered the sound levels and throughout the performance the auditorium will have the main lights dimmed instead of being in complete darkness. There is also a designated ‘chill out area’ outside the auditorium that can be used at any time throughout the show.
