Polka Fly the Flag on 29 June

June 3, 2019

This month, Polka are proud to be joining arts organisations and human rights charities across the UK to Fly The Flag for Human Rights, marking the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

From the Highlands of Scotland to the coast of Cornwall via cities, towns and villages across the UK, in galleries and theatres, shopping centres and offices, schools and libraries, people will come together to fly a flag created by artist Ai Weiwei, celebrating that human rights are for everyone, every day.

The project is co-produced by Fuel, Amnesty International, Donmar Warehouse, Human Rights Watch, Liberty, the National Theatre, Sadler’s Wells and Tate.

Polka are proud to be supporting an initiative that will raise awareness of human rights across the UK for generations to come.


Polka Artistic Director, Peter Glanville says: ‘As A Children’s Theatre, Polka are Flying The Flag to reinforce the message that all children in the UK and across the world must have basic human rights, and be treated with equality and respect.’ 


Polka will proudly Fly the Flag as part of a special public performance at the Love Wimbledon Market on Saturday 29th June, 12pm. The performance will feature singers of all ages as part of our Re:Sound choir project, embracing the joy of creativity, community and togetherness across all generations.
