Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Kids Week

Kids Week is all about introducing young people to London theatre. A child aged 16 or under can go FREE to any participating show when accompanied by an adult paying full price, and you can buy up to two extra children’s tickets at half price. What’s more, there are no booking or postage fees to pay!

Kids Week is over for another year but will return in August 2022.

What are the Kids Week dates?
The Kids Week deal includes selected performances between 1- 31 August. It used to be just one weeklong (hence the name!) but has grown in popularity and now runs for the whole of August.

When does booking open?
Booking will open in June 2022, when a full list of participating shows will also be announced.

Are there tickets for all performances in August?
The Kids Week deal is only valid on selected dates on participating shows and can only be booked directly through this website. There are a limited number of Kids Week tickets for each performance and tickets may not be on sale for all performances.

How much are Kids Week tickets?
It really depends on the show, so be sure to check that when you book. All adults pay full price – you get a free kids’ ticket with each adult, and you can book up to 2 extra children for half price. There are no booking, postage or transaction fees on Kids Week tickets.

My child is 16 – can they have a free kids’ ticket?
They most certainly can! The offer’s open to any child aged 16 or under.

Can I take a child under 5?

It depends on the show. Some theatres and shows have strict age policies and don’t admit young children. We always recommend looking at the Age & Content Guide for shows on their individual listings page. It looks like this:

Can I take a baby to the theatre?
Babes in arms are not allowed in almost all theatres. Please check with the venue directly for their current guidelines.

Yes! Theatre Tokens can be redeemed online when you make your booking.
