Polka first opened the doors to our ground-breaking theatre venue for children way back in 1979. Since then we have welcomed over 3.5 million visitors, an exciting and stimulating theatre venue exclusively for children age 0-12 year olds which set new standards in children’s theatre.

This year we are celebrating our 40th anniversary and we’re looking for local people to volunteer to get involved with a range of different activities throughout this time.

There are ongoing roles, short term volunteering opportunities and opportunities for students available.
