  • MSE Update, Thursday 16 June at 10.30am: Kids Week says over 113,000 of the original 250,000 tickets have now sold, and several shows have sold out including Matilda and The Lion King, though we have seen shows increase their ticket allocation during the promotion previously, so it could be worth checking back.

    The popular Kids Week theatre promotion is back. You can nab a free child’s ticket for kids aged 17 and under to 40+ London theatre shows with the purchase of a full-priced adult ticket from the Kids Week website. The offer's for performances throughout August, including huge West End hits such as Wicked, Grease and Disney's Frozen.

    When the deal launched at 10am on Tuesday 14 June, there were 250,000+ Kids Week tickets up for grabs (that figure includes both adult and child tickets), and although you can technically book until Wednesday 31 August, seats for the most popular shows tend to be snapped up quickly. You'll make a saving of £14-£90 depending which show and seats you select – and there are no booking or postage fees.

    If you're bringing more than one child, the first child ticket is free and then you can get 50% off for a maximum of two more children per adult. 

    Shows for this August include these popular hits:

    • 101 Dalmatians
    • Back To The Future The Musical
    • Disney's Beauty And The Beast
    • Dear Evan Hansen
    • Disney's Frozen
    • Disney's The Lion King
    • Mamma Mia
    • Mary Poppins
    • Matilda The Musical
    • The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe
    • The Play That Goes Wrong
    • The Tiger Who Came To Tea
    • Wicked

    See 'More info' below for the full list of shows participating in Kids Week.

    Which performances can you get the deal on?

    It's not every performance of every show – some exclude their most popular performances, such as matinees or weekends. Tickets are distributed randomly across all dates, shows and seat prices, so it helps to be flexible in your choice.

    During the booking process you'll get to see which seats are available. You can book a maximum of eight tickets per show (one free child per paying adult). If you can't find the tickets you want, it's worth checking back at a later date – in past years we've seen some shows increase their allocation of tickets as time goes on.

  • Children aged 2-12yrs can get cinema tickets from £2.49 at Vue with Mini Mornings screenings, when booked online or via the app every Saturday and Sunday after 10am, and every morning during school holidays. What's more, accompanying adults get in for £2.49 too – so as long as there's at least one child in your group, the whole family pays the same price of £2.49 per person. 

    You can buy tickets on the day, but it'll cost £1 more per ticket (£3.49 each) and seats can sell out quickly. To be safe, you may be best to book online in advance.

    Vue says the screenings take place in every cinema except the West End and Piccadilly branches.
