An online evening of quick-thinking, creativity and surprises from Polka Theatre.

Join special guest hosts Joanna Lumley, Amanda Holden and friends for Polka Theatre’s first online charity quiz.

The evening will raise vital funds to help Polka continue to support children impacted by COVID19 through lockdown and beyond.

Polka Theatre is a registered charity which provides 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.

Since lockdown, Polka has:

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

Stayed in touch with vulnerable members of the community

Moved their inter-generational choir online 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.
