Arcola Theatre creates exiting and inspiring children’s theatre as well as bringing high quality productions from across the UK to perform on our stages.
- All of our plays are suitable for ages 8+ (and some for even younger children).
- We provide schools with 1 free adult for every 10 children’s tickets purchased to enable you to bring enough teachers to look after your group.
- We also run START at the Arcola Theatre, supported by the Princes’ Foundation for Children and the Arts..
