Budding young theatregoers are in for a treat this August. Thanks to Kids Week, an annual initiative run by Official London Theatre, under-16s can experience the thrills of West End drama for free. From classic heavyweights like Wicked and Chicago to the toddler-friendly The Tiger Who Came to Tea, there’ll be top-class entertainment for everyone. But hurry – some shows are already sold out!
This month is not just about spectating. Participating productions will be offering workshops, chats with the cast, and even the chance to step foot on the world-renowned stages, bringing kids closer to the action.
A hearty day of culture needs food to match. Luckily, with a Kids Week ticket, families can take advantage of a whole host of deals, with children eating free at selected restaurants. Family favourites Planet Hollywood, Rainforest Café and Hard Rock Café London will be amongst those taking part in the offers, so you can refuel after the theatrical excitement.
When: All month, booking open now
Where: Several theatres across the West End, varying by show
