About Us

The Unicorn Theatre is the largest children’s theatre in the UK, specialising in producing new, innovative and ambitious productions for children aged up to 13 years.

Based in our purpose-built home at London Bridge, our venue is a creative space that welcomes around 65,000 families and schools every year, and reaches thousands more across the UK and beyond through touring and online theatre experiences. Creating theatre with the values of curiosity, respect and courage, and working in partnership with schools and communities, we work to connect young people with hopeful stories that question and explore the world.
