Kids go free to over 30 shows
Celebrating its 17th year, Kids Week is back and planning an action-packed month of theatrical fun from 1-31 August. During Kids Week, a child aged 16 or under can experience the magic of London theatre and see a fantastic selection of shows for free.
How does it work?
Children aged 5 to 16 years can see an awesome selection of dazzling West End hits gratis – as long as an adult pays the full price – and another two children can go half price.
The 2014 shows include Aliens Love Underpants, The Elephantum, The Tiger Who Came To Tea, What The Ladybird Heard, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Lion King, Hetty Feather, Horrible Histories, I Believe in Unicorns, Mamma Mia!, Matilda the Musical, Les Miserables, War Horse and many more.
Tickets for the most popular shows go fast, so it’s best not to make any promises until you’ve booked. Aside from the shows themselves, kids are also encouraged to join in with fun activities. They can peek backstage, participate in workshops, dabble with make-up, learn to dance, scribble a few lines in writing classes and even sing with the cast.
Kids Week first extended its run to a month in 2012 to celebrate the Olympics and after popular demand returned last year in all its four week glory. In 2013, a huge 107,000 family members attended one of more than 1,200 theatre performances of 34 top West End shows.
Continuing its impressive statistics, a survey of more than 5,000 2013 Kids Week bookers revealed an outstanding 99.4% of responders said they would recommend the campaign to a friend and 93% claimed it had inspired their family to attend the theatre more frequently.
