A famous children’s theatre in London is celebrating its tenth anniversary in their theatre.

The Unicorn Theatre was officially opened on Tooley Street on December 1 2005, and is now looking for child volunteers to help them mark the occasion.

Unicorn’s President, Juliet Stevenson said: “The Unicorn is a unique and vibrant theatre that continues to play an important part in thousands of young lives every year.

“I am extremely proud to have been associated with the Unicorn for the last 10 years, from the realisation of Caryl Jenner’s dream for the UK’s first purpose-built children’s theatre to the thriving London venue it is today.”

The theatre are looking for 10-year-olds to join them on December 1 this year to mark the celebration.

They are also opening the theatre up to the public over the August bank holiday weekend, for free events, workshops and tours.

Hollywood actor Jude Law, who is an ambassador for the venue, said: “I’m thrilled to have been a supporter of the Unicorn Theatre at its purpose built home in Tooley Street for ten years, watching the theatre grow – just as we watch our children, who so happily attend, grow!

“The Unicorn keeps going from strength to strength.”

The Tooley Street theatre was built specifically to host children’s theatre, and was opened by the late Lord Attenborough.

Purni Morell, Artistic Director, said: “Children’s theatre has come a long way in the UK over the last decade.

“So I am hugely proud to have led the Unicorn over the past three years, to have had the chance to programme work I love.

“At its best, nothing should stop children’s theatre standing alongside the very best theatre that’s made anywhere.”

The celebrations will also involve a number of those involved in designing and opening the theatre in 2005.
