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.”
