    Mastercard holder? Get tickets now via Priceless.com until 7.59am on Tuesday 6 December.

    Tickets will go on general sale at 10am on Tuesday 6 December.

    They're for matinée, evening, and some weekend performances, though we expect the cheapest tickets to go fast, so it's best not to hang about if you want to take advantage of this deal.


    There are 200,000 discounted tickets available which are spread randomly across all dates and shows. Tickets for specific performances are dependant on availability and limited per performance – so it could be pot luck finding the show you want on a particular date. Not all shows will offer tickets at the lowest price point of £10, and the cheaper tickets for the more popular shows are likely to go very quickly.

    Seats are discounted based on their price tier, so the amount of saving on the normal price will vary per show and per seat. £10 tickets will usually be the cheapest normal-priced seats in the theatre, and £50 tickets will be the top-priced (non-premium) seats. Once again, there will be no booking fees.

    For other ways to save at the theatre, see our Cheap theatre tickets guide.

  • Kids aged 17 and under go 'free' to West End shows in August

    Kids aged 17 and under go 'free' to West End shows in August

    With a paying adult. 40+ shows including Disney's Frozen, Grease and Wicked

    Expired

    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.
