The Unicorn is the UK’s leading theatre for young audiences, producing an eclectic and surprising programme of work year-round for children aged 6 months to 18 years.
Based in our purpose-built home at London Bridge, we aim to connect artists and audiences through a broad range of work that is honest, refreshing and international in outlook, across a range of disciplines.
We present and tour around twenty shows each year, at home and abroad, to around 90,000 children and their parents and carers, and work extensively with schools and in the community to invite children from all cultures into a conversation about art and the world we live in.
