Kids Week extends to 7 September

First Published 1 August 2016, Last Updated 2 August 2016

Our popular family promotion, Kids Week, has announced it will extend to 7 September to mark the end of the school holidays.

The Kids Week deal enables a child aged 16 or under to go free to a London show when accompanied by a full paying adult, and a further two children can go for half price. With more than 55,000 tickets available to more than 30 shows, there is something to suit every taste and budget, from entertainment for Under 5s to shows suitable for teens.

Emma De Souza, founder of Kids Week, said:  “We are delighted to announce that Kids Week 2016 will be extending for one week. Thanks to the support of producers, even more families will be able to experience the finest theatre London has to offer this summer”

Kenny Wax, producer of The Gruffalo, The Play That Goes Wrong, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery and The Tiger Who Came To Tea, all of which are participating in Kids Week, said: “The ‘kids go free’ initiative is a wonderful way to encourage parents to bring their children into the West End during the month of August. In fact, it’s the popularity of Kids Week that encourages us to bring new family shows into the West End each year during the summer months.”

Kids Week is not just about the shows. Children can also take part in free activities organised by the shows as part of a Show & Activity Package, including dancing with Scooby-Doo, designing shoes with Kinky Boots and learning the Locomotion with Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.

Book your tickets today on the Kids Week website.

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.
