Kids Week: Booking lines now open

First Published 17 April 2008, Last Updated 18 April 2008

The time has come: booking lines for Kids Week 2007 are now open, offering thousands of children the chance to go free to over 30 top West End shows during the Kids Week fortnight, 17-31 August.

The Kids Week deal is simple – one child aged 5-16 can go free to any participating show when accompanied by a full-paying adult, and another two children can go for half price. Shows participating this year include The 39 Steps, The Lion King, Fantastic Mr Fox, Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The Lord Of The Rings, Mamma Mia!, Mary Poppins, Little Shop Of Horrors, The Sound Of Music and many, many more.

Kids Week is 10 years old this year and, to celebrate, there are over 50 free events for young people, making this Kids Week the biggest and best yet. Take part in a dancing workshop with the cast of Fame, learn a routine on stage with the cast of Mamma Mia!, sing-along with Joseph or discover the joys of Scandinavian folk dancing with Monty Python’s Spamalot.

On 16-17 August, Kids Week kicks off with a free outdoor extravaganza in Covent Garden piazza. The event will showcase extracts from top London shows, while children can get involved in dancing, singing and drama activities, with a special marquee for under 5s. As part of the 10th birthday celebrations the launch event will include Talented 10-Year-Olds, a talent contest to find budding young performers to take to the stage in Covent Garden.

For a full list of participating shows and events, plus much more information on Kids Week and the special launch weekend, visit www.kidsweek.co.uk. Bookings can be made on the website or by calling the ticket hotline on 0870 400 0800.

Kids Week 2007 is organised by the Society of London Theatre and sponsored by Buckle-My-Shoe.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
