  • 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. Including hits such as Grease, Mrs Doubtfire and The Wizard of Oz


    The popular Kids Week theatre promotion is back. You can nab a free child ticket (for children aged 17 and under) to 30+ London theatre shows with the purchase of a full-priced adult ticket from the Official London Theatre's Kids Week website.

    All performances can be booked online at via Official London Theatre, with hit shows including Disney's Frozen, Grease, Heathers The Musical, The Mousetrap, Phantom of the Opera, Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, Wicked, The Wizard of Oz and more – see the full list of 30+ shows.

    As tickets went on sale on Tuesday 13 June, some shows are now sold out.

    Which performances can you get the deal on?

    Seats for the most popular shows tend to be snapped up quickly. 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. Last year we saw savings of up to £90 depending which shows and seats were selected – and there are no booking or postage fees.

    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.
