Polka Theatre Request

Organisation Description

Polka is the UK’s leading theatre for children based in Wimbledon, South West London. The first UK venue to be created exclusively for young audiences, we celebrated our 40th anniversary in 2019. We
specialise in work for children aged 0-12 years and remain one of very few theatres in the UK that regularly commissions and produces new work for children in this age range. Learning and participation is at the heart of Polka’s work, encouraging children to explore and develop creatively. We offer opportunities for all children, regardless of age, ability, culture or background, to engage in the arts.

What are they looking for?

Reopening in Spring 2021 following a major redevelopment, Polka is seeking energetic and talented volunteers to join our Board of Trustees at this exciting time. A major focus for Polka and its Trustees over the next few years will be to deliver a successful reopening of the building alongside a reimagined, revitalised and more sustainable organisation. Following a governance review and skills audit, we are looking to appoint up to four Trustees during 2021, with particular skills, experience and attributes that will complement current Trustees: Creative working within Arts/Performance Charity Development Operational and Venue Management IT/ Digital Technology Commercial Development/Venue Sales Legal/HR Local community, particularly in East Merton We particularly welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds or with young children of Polka-going age.
