We are able to accommodate school and nursery bookings for all of our shows, but please do follow age guidance.
Tickets for school groups start from as little as £10.
We offer 1 complimentary ticket for every 10 tickets booked. These are intended for teachers but are not dependent on the number of teachers/chaperones attending.
Please note this is a reservation only. Booking is confirmed once we have received payment for the tickets. If we do not receive payment on or before the set due date, we will cancel the reservation. We always try to offer flexibility where we can, so if you experience any issues in confirming payment by the due date, please let us know.
We look forward to welcoming you and your class to our theatre.
We are able to offer custom made workshops on site for up to 30 children at a reduced rate when booked alongside a performance. These will related to the shows but can also be adjusted to fit your curriculum. More information about our school workshops can be found here.
We can also offer a space for your school to eat packed lunches before or after the show for a small fee as part of your booking, subject to availability. Lunch spaces must be requested in advance. We are unable to accommodate if requested on the day.
Ice creams are just £2 each (with a dairy free option available) and available to pre-order. Please let us know how many ice creams are required and we can add it to your invoice.

Plan Your Visit
What To Expect
You will be attending a schools performance, which means there will mainly be school groups present when you watch the show. However, we are a community space. This means there will likely be families with smaller children sharing the building with you when you visit.
Our building has been designed with children in mind, their safety and comfort are paramount. Everything from toilet facilities to coat hooks and rubbish collection has been considered. When you arrive, a member of the team will greet you at our automatic doors and guide you to where you need to be.
We know it’s no small task taking a class group out and about, so our experienced staff are specially trained to support your needs during your time at Polka.
Read our Safeguarding policy.
When you visit Polka there’s a lot more to do than just see a show, so please come and make the most of our wonderful new venue…
