Polka Invites is a funded programme, which aims to increase access to creative experiences at Polka, for families in our community.
Thank you to the Hugo Halkes Charitable Trust for supporting The Hugo Halkes Ticket Fund, enabling Polka to provide tickets free of charge.
What’s Polka Invites?
Polka Invites has been created to allow us to support new audiences, by offering FREE and subsidised creative opportunities for children and families to enjoy.
Taking part in drama activities means your child will develop confidence, communication and concentration skills – all whilst having fun! Their emotional understanding and needs are supported and strengthened. And family bonds are reinforced through the shared experience of having a good time.
What’s on offer?
A range of FREE and discounted activities, including:
- Selected performances*
- Saturday Club – a family event on the first Saturday of each month with storytelling, puppet making, craft activities etc*
- Take Part - after school and holiday workshops*
- Discounted drinks in the Café
The theatre has indoor and outdoor play spaces, a buggy park, toilets, a reading corner and dressing up. All of this is completely free. Everyone is welcome.

Polka Invites is an ‘invitation only’/referral scheme. If you would like to apply or find out more, please contact our Community Engagement Manager Fran Chabrel - [email protected] or call her on 07552 808290 .
