Kids Week; More Information

Please note that no more than 8 tickets can be booked for any one show to ensure an equal distribution of tickets are available.

Many of the most popular London Shows take part in Kids Week each year including; The Lion King, Annie, Mamma Mia! Thriller Live, Wicked, School of Rock, Disney’s Aladdin, Matilda The Musical, The Mousetrap & many more.

Handy Hints for Kids Week

1. Kids Week is a very popular promotion that runs each August & includes a full range of top London shows. There are a limited number of Kids Week tickets for each performance & of course demand is high.

2. Be ready to go at 10am on 13 June to give yourself the best possible chance of bagging free tickets in this promotion.

3. It pays to be as flexible as you can so have both a range of dates & shows in mind. This will give you the best possible chance of securing a booking.

4. Be persistent; always worth checking back if you are not successful the first time as they do receive additional ticket allocations for certain London shows, (but unfortunately not all shows).

5. Remember you can only secure 1 FREE ticket per booking. Whilst splitting into smaller groups will possibly gain you more free tickets you do run the risk of not seeing the same show nor sitting together!

Is Kids Week A Good Deal?

It is certainly a popular deal & tickets do go quickly for certain shows. The great advantage with Kids Weeks is that it does include popular London Shows that you wouldn’t necessarily find any type of concessionary rate so a free seat is pretty good going!

However do be aware that you can only secure 1 free seat per booking (2 other children can pick up half price seats) & you must pay full price for the accompanying adult and that’s not cheap!

There are plenty of other Theatre Deals running in London particularly for children that offer great value for money.
