Polka's magical staging of Anthony Browne's Gorilla returns to the Main Theatre this summer. Read More >

Hannah loves gorillas, but she’s never seen a real one. It’s the night before her birthday and something amazing is about to happen…

When Hannah’s toy gorilla comes to life, dressed in her father’s coat and hat, they embark on a thrilling, moonlit adventure.

Meet the world’s friendliest gorilla this winter as Polka Theatre celebrate the 30th anniversary of the classic
award-winning picture book by former Children’s Laureate Anthony Browne, brought to life with puppetry, music and a giant sprinkling of Polka magic.

Gorilla is recommended for ages four to seven-years-old.
