The Polka Theatre is set to receive £1.2 million from the Mayor of London’s Good Growth Fund securing the theatre’s future in Wimbledon as well as its importance as a cultural hub in the community.

In 2019, the Polka Theatre will be celebrating its 40th anniversary as one of the UK’s leading theatres for children up to the age of 12, having recently featured, Wind In The Willows, as well as many other classic shows.

The redevelopment will bring with it a new Adventure Theatre, specially designed for young children up to the age of 5, a new rehearsal and development studio, a creative learning studio designed to help children with sensory needs as well as improved access facilities.

With up to 90,000 children visiting the theatre every year this funding award will go a long way in helping to redevelop and maintain such a vital element within the community.

As a result of the funding award, the Polka Theatre has less than £800k to raise in order to reach their total fundraising target. Other key project supporters have been Arts Council England, London Borough of Merton, major trusts and foundations as well as individual supporters.
