Naming a new seat in our refurbished Main Theatre is a wonderful way to celebrate your family’s special memories of Polka, remember a loved one, or mark your child’s birthday.

Your gift will provide crucial support needed to complete a major redevelopment of our unique children’s theatre home. It will enable us to make our dynamic programme of live theatre and learning activities even more accessible and inspiring for future generations from the local community in our iconic building – designed with children in mind.

For monthly donations from as little as £25, you can sponsor one of our new Main Theatre seats – either at £1,000 or one of our £2,000 premium seats.
