Other Polka Theatre facts

Polka started life as a touring company in 1967, under the Artistic Directorship of Richard Gill. Gill was spurred on by a commitment to fine design and craftsmanship and a passion for puppetry, taking the company’s work to many of Britain’s major theatres. By 1971, Polka was attracting staggering audiences of 250,000 each year. Gill had a policy of bringing skill, craft and colour to Polka’s touring productions. Now he wanted to do the same to a building which could be a home for Polka’s work. In 1976, Polka found the Holy Trinity Halls in Wimbledon and in 1979, following a lengthy fundraising campaign, Polka’s dream of a permanent home for children’s theatre became a reality.
