The London Lifestyle Award-winning promotion, which is now in its 16th year, allows a child aged 16 or under to go free for each full priced ticket purchased for one of the participating productions, plus the opportunity to purchase up to two more children’s tickets at half price.

This year’s incredible line-up features everything from hit musicals and acclaimed dramas to spectacular entertainment and dance, with tickets available for The 39 Steps, Billy Elliot The Musical, The Bodyguard, Brainiac Live!, A Chorus Line, The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time, Dinosaur Zoo, Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage, Disney’s The Lion King, Fences, The Golden Voice, Horrible Histories – Barmy Britain, Shanghai Ballet’s Jane Eyre, Jersey Boys, The Ladykillers, Let It Be, Mamma Mia!, Matilda The Musical, Les Misérables, Monty Python’s Spamalot, The Mousetrap, Once, One Man, Two Guvnors, The Sound Of Music, Stomp, Thriller Live, Top Hat, War Horse, We’re Going On A Bear Hunt, West Side Story, We Will Rock You, Wicked and The Woman In Black.

As in previous years, young theatregoers will also have access to a host of special activities including ballet dancing with Billy Elliot The Musical, tap dancing with Top Hat, learning pop songs with Let It Be and Jersey Boys, experiencing prehistoric puppetry with Dinosaur Zoo and taking part in a spooky interactive workshop with The Woman In Black.

Talking about the annual initiative, which is run by the Society of London Theatre (SOLT) and aims to introduce young people to the theatre, SOLT President Mark Rubinstein said: “Starting as just a week and now spanning a month, Kids Week has firmly established itself as a key date in the West End’s calendar. We’re looking forward to throwing open our doors and welcoming young audiences to what, for many, will be their first taste of a West End show. With free events and activities alongside the tremendous range of plays, musicals, and dance shows on offer, it is fantastic to see that Kids Week is back and bigger than ever.”

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

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.
