Kids Go Free to over 50 top West End shows this summer as the much-loved Kids Week campaign returns!

Get the whole family into London theatre this summer as long-running audience development initiative Kids Week returns, offering free children’s tickets to participating shows.

    Lovingly referred to as ‘the longest week in summer’, Kids Week now runs throughout the
    summer holidays with tickets available to select performances from Wednesday 24 July to
    Friday 6 September.

    During Kids Week, a child aged 17 and under can see a show for free when accompanied by an adult paying full price, plus an additional two children can attend for half price – and there’s no booking fees. 

    From exciting productions participating for the first time like Hamilton, Harry Potter And The
    Cursed Child, Guys & Dolls and MJ The Musical to established Kids Week favourites
    including Horrible Histories – Terrible Tudors, Disney’s The Lion King, RSC’s Matilda The
    Musical, Mrs Doubtfire, Shrek, Wicked and The Wizard Of Oz, there is something for all the
    family to enjoy.

    Alongside the performances, shows are offering a range of free activities for Kids Week
    ticketholders, so look out for ‘Kids Week Curtain Calls’ where all Kids Week bookers in
    attendance can stay for a post-show Q&A or demonstration after the show, as well as more
    show specific offerings from dance and musical theatre workshops to puppet
    demonstrations.
