Free kids’ theatre tickets up for grabs

Keeping the kids entertained for six whole weeks can be hard work – and expensive! To help Official London Theatre is offering free tickets again this year to some of the most well-known and well-loved family shows.

With 45 different shows available to book, from Beauty and the Beast to Hamilton, Fireman Sam, and The Gruffalo, there is something for everyone.

As well as free entry into the show, Kids Week is also putting on some special events where kids can stay for post-show Q&As or demonstrations, as well as special dance and musical workshops for budding thespians.

Ticket booking opens today (11 June) for performances from 26 July to 6 September. They are available on a first come, first served basis so parents should act fast to bag a bargain day out.

Any child under 17 can book a free ticket as long as they are accompanied by a full-paying adult. And larger families can buy up to two extra children’s tickets at half-price.

To check availability and book your tickets, visit Kids Week booking page.

Kids Week is also running exclusive events for Mastercard holders throughout the summer holidays. The offer includes the chance to win tickets to English National Ballet’s Nutcracker. As well as a free digital pack containing theatre-themed word searches, spot the difference, guess the show and more. There is also an opportunity to attend special activities with RSC’s Matilda The Musical and Shrek the Musical.
