Kids Week is all about introducing young people to London theatre. A child 17 and 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 transaction fees to pay!
Important ticket info
Because we work with box offices with a variety of ticketing systems, when you buy your tickets the seats will appear at their half price cost on the seating plan. This is the same deal as 1 full price paying adult and 1 free child. You must select as many tickets as in your party (eg; 2 adults and 3 children = 5 tickets).
You must book a minimum of 2 and maximum of 8 tickets and there should be no more than 4 adults in your party. If there are 4 children or more, they must be accompanied by a minimum of two adults.
What are the Kids Week dates?
The Kids Week deal includes selected performances between 1- 31 August. It used to be just one week long (hence the name!) but has grown in popularity and now runs for the whole of August.
When does booking open?
Booking opens on Tuesday 14 June 2022 at 10am. A full list of participating shows will be announced on Tuesday 7 June. Please note for some shows there may be a digital queue at busy times, especially when tickets first go on sale.
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 17 – can they have a free kids’ ticket?
They most certainly can! We have extended the offer so it’s now open to any child aged 17 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.
Can I use Theatre Tokens to pay for Kids Week tickets?
Yes! Theatre Tokens can be redeemed online when you make your booking.
How do I book Access tickets?
If you, or someone you know, has access needs, you can complete our Access Priority Request Form the weekend before general on-sale (10-12 June) outlining your access requirements. The form will be available on this page from Friday 10 June. Once the promotion is on sale, we recommend booking access tickets directly with the venue. A list of contact information for the venues will be available from Tuesday 14 June.
Will there be Kids Week Activities this year?
This year, we’ll be organising a small number of activities. As there is limited capacity, spaces will first be offered to those who are new to Kids Week. Please note that booking a performance with an activity attached, does not guarantee an activity space. If you are eligible to attend, we will get in touch with you in July with further details.
Also look out for ‘Kids Week Curtain Calls’ – opportunities for ALL Kids Week bookers of that performance to engage with the show you have just watched after the performance. Details will be sent to bookers closer to the date of the performance.
Look out for blue stars on the show’s calendar page for full info!
