The Unicorn Theatre Celebrates 70!

August 30, 2017 - September 2, 2017

The UK’s leading theatre for young audiences is celebrating its 70th anniversary this summer. Check out the schedule for four days of family fun to launch the festivities…


Choose from dance workshops, puppet making, clay creations, circus skills and special performances of the hit production Baby Show. There will also be a number of drop-in arts, crafts and games each day. All events take place from 30 Aug – 2 Sep.

To ensure that as many people as possible can enjoy the activities, the Unicorn Theatre have limited advanced booking of the FREE events to two children per workshop with a maximum of two events bookable per customer per day. Early booking is highly recommended, but you will still be able to sign-up for places on the day too, and the foyer arts and crafts sessions don’t need pre-booking.

These events can only be booked by phone on 020 7645 0560 (open 9.30am – 6pm). There’s a range of free and ticketed events with prices from £3.
