    Story

    Polka Theatre are a registered charity who provide creative activities and support for families, teachers and vulnerable children.

    Children are amongst those hit hardest by lockdown and the impact of Covid 19. For some the stress, anxiety and isolation can be overwhelming. Now more than ever children need access to creative experiences which help them to combat loneliness, and navigate their ever changing world.

    Covid 19 has dealt Polka a significant blow so we are hosting a charity quiz night to help Polka continue to support children, their teachers and families at a time when they need it most.

    Just £25 could pay for materials for an online workshop for families to enjoy for free – that’s the suggested donation for a quiz team. To book your place on the quiz visit: https://bit.ly/PolkaQuiz1.

    Just £65 could pay for a teachers support pack, full of creative ideas for remote lessons and games for children at home.

    Just £120 could pay for a free drama workshop for children at risk of social isolation

    Since the lockdown started Polka Theatre have:

    Launched Polka Online, a treasure trove of free creative activities, storytelling, live workshops and more

    Adapted their support programmes for at-risk children so everyone can still take part regardless of their personal barriers e.g. no internet access.

    Stayed in touch with vulnerable members of the community

    Moved our intergenerational choir online this summer, so everyone from babies to grandparents can still enjoy singing together, even while they are apart.

    Created a strategy to support children once lockdown ends.

    They need support to ensure this work can continue.

    Words can’t express how much my daughter loves the Drama Workshops that you’ve created! 🎭 ❤️ Much appreciated by us both.

    Just beautiful. Cheered me up and made me smile ❤

    I have to teach Drama remotely to years 2-6, a task that is nigh on impossible with the every small ones and your classes have been a godsend… I wish you could see them, they are loving the stories and the workshops. If you had seen the little bear puppet videos I got your heart would melt, they’re amazing. It is so lovely to see the children’s imaginations being fired up in these difficult circumstances Thank You!

    Thank you so much for joining in to support children’s creativity. We hope you have an amazing Quiz- good luck!
