Kids Go Free to over 50 top West End shows this summer!

Get the whole family into London theatre this summer as long-running audience development initiative Kids Week returns, offering free children’s tickets to participating shows.  Lovingly referred to as ‘the longest week in summer’, Kids Week now runs throughout the summer holidays with tickets available to select performances from Wednesday 24 July to Friday 6 September. During Kids Week, a child aged 17 and under can see a show for free when accompanied by an adult paying full price, plus an additional two children can attend for half price – and there’s no booking fees.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on 11 June, only via  

From exciting productions participating for the first time like Hamilton, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child, Guys & Dolls and MJ The Musical to established Kids Week favourites including Horrible Histories – Terrible Tudors, Disney’s The Lion King, RSC’s Matilda The Musical, Mrs Doubtfire, Shrek, Wicked and The Wizard Of Oz, there is something for all the family to enjoy. 

Alongside the performances, shows are offering a range of free activities for Kids Week ticketholders, so look out for ‘Kids Week Curtain Calls’ where all Kids Week bookers in attendance can stay for a post-show Q&A or demonstration after the show, as well as more show specific offerings from dance and musical theatre workshops to puppet demonstrations. 

This year, Mastercard cardholders can unlock special Kids Week exclusives, which include the chance to win tickets to English National Ballet’s Nutcracker this Christmas and a free digital activity pack, including a theatre themed wordsearch, spot the difference, guess the show from emojis and more. Mastercard cardholders will also have exclusive access to two Kids Week activity events with RSC’s Matilda The Musical and Shrek The Musical. Click HERE for further information.
