  • Kids Week is back. You can now nab a free child’s ticket (age 16 and under) to 40+ London theatre shows with the purchase of a full-priced adult ticket from the Kids Week website. Designed to encourage families to make trips to the theatre, the annual offer runs throughout the entire month of August. For more ideas of what to do during a visit to London, see our 40 London MoneySaving tips.

    This year's shows include huge West End hits such as Wicked, Mamma Mia! and The Woman in Black. There were initially 150,000+ Kids Week tickets up for grabs (that figure includes both adult and child tickets), and although you can technically book until Sat 31 Aug, seats for the most popular shows are already being snapped up quickly. In fact, 105,000 tickets were gone by midnight of day one.

    You'll make a saving of £14.50-£80 depending which show and seats you select. If you're bringing more than one child, you can receive 50% off for a maximum of two more children per adult. You don't have to pay any booking or postage fees.

    Shows for this August include:

    See 'More info' below for the full list of shows participating in Kids Week 2019.

    Which performances can you get the deal on?

    The deal won't be available for 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 a little flexible in your choice.

    To book, select the number of adult tickets you want, then click the drop-down menu to pick the relevant child ticket type (free or half-price). 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 later in the month.
