50% off London theatre tickets when adults & kids go together
Big discount on 20+ shows, eg, Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Billionaire BoyExpired
After a year off due to the pandemic, the Kids Week theatre promotion is back for 2021. You can get 50% off tickets for 20+ London theatre shows throughout August when adults and kids go together. The offer launched with 30+ shows on 30 June, and while several popular shows have sold out, Kids Week says 100,000 tickets are still available, but you'll need to go quick.
Booking is open online at Official London Theatre.
Who can get 50% off tickets?
Kids Week is designed to encourage families to make trips to the theatre, and the offer runs the entire month of August, so it isn't really a 'Week' despite the name.
As long as there are no more than eight in your group you all get 50% off if you meet this criteria:
- Each adult must be accompanied by at least one kid aged 17 or under. So two adults require at least two kids, etc.
- However, you can have more kids than adults in the group. It's a max four kids if there's one adult, though you can have more kids if there are more adults, subject to the overall group max size of eight.
You can make a saving of up to £40 per ticket, depending which show and seats you select. In previous years, the offer has been a kid goes 'free' with a full paying adult, and while this year it's 50% off all tickets, you're essentially getting the same deal in terms of what you pay. What's particularly good is there are no booking or postage fees.
Which performances can I get the deal on?
- When we checked, shows with tickets still available included Billionaire Boy, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and The Phantom of the Opera – see the full list of shows. Kids Week says there are "thousands of tickets available", and although you can technically book until Tue 31 Aug for some shows, seats for the most popular performances get snapped up quickly.
- The deal won't be available for every performance of every show – some exclude their most popular performances. Kids Week says some Friday and weekend performances will be available – you'll be able to see full availability when booking opens, as well as which seats you can select during the booking process.
- Tickets are distributed randomly across all dates, shows and seat prices, so it helps to be a little flexible in your choice. If you can't find the tickets you want, it's worth checking back at a later date as in past years we've seen some shows increase their allocation of tickets later into the promotion.
What are my refund rights?
Kids Week says if the performance you book is affected by a coronavirus-related postponement or cancellation, you'll be contacted with the option to exchange your tickets for a future date, a voucher, or to get a refund.
If you're unable to attend the performance you've booked because you've had a positive coronavirus test, or must isolate because you've been in contact with someone who has, you can exchange your ticket for a future performance providing it's no less than 24 hours before the performance start time. You aren't normally entitled to a refund if you've just changed your mind.
