Polka Theatre unveils full Techtopia Festival line-up

First Published 3 May 2018, Last Updated 4 May 2018

Peter Glanville, Artistic Director of Polka Theatre, has announced the full programme for Techtopia Festival, which comes to the venue later this month.

Running from 24 May until 3 June, Techtopia Festival includes a number of performances, workshops and installations spanning two weeks, exploring the role of technology in modern childhood.

The festival opens with Scanner’s Inc and House of Absolute’s Stardust, a special exploration of sound and dance. Other highlights include Error 404 and Random Selfies, followed by The First Girl In Space by Andrew Alty and performed by Polka Youth Theatre. Running alongside these are a variety of workshops including The World Of Supersaurs with author Jay Jay Burridge, and Animated Worlds with award-winning company 1927.

These are in addition to the previously announced iPet, Error 404, Random Selfies and The First Girl In Space.

We have all pondered how differently children today will grow up with: tablets, laptops and game consoles so readily available. The Techtopia Festival asks us to delve into this topical discussion and question our views on technology and childhood.

Polka invite you to create, question and marvel at how technology shapes all our lives through a thrilling programme of theatre, interactive workshops, debates, installations and unique learning experiences.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
