Kids Week is back this August with over 30 London shows participating

Tickets on sale 10am Wednesday 30 June at 

Kids Week is #BackOnStage and this much loved, long-running initiative is the perfect way to introduce your family to the magic of live theatre over the summer holidays – from hit musicals and plays to comedies and family favourites.

Kids Week tickets go on sale at 10am on Wednesday 30 June, available from For the first time ever, we have extended the offer from ages 16 and under to 17 and under, as so many will have missed out on their last Kids Week experience due to lockdown, and we want to ensure that as many young people as possible can be welcomed into our theatres. 

During Kids Week, a child goes free when accompanied by a full paying adult to participating shows throughout August. We have had to set it up slightly differently this year, so although it will be the same fantastic deal in terms of what you pay, instead of one full price ticket and one free child ticket it will be presented as two half price tickets. As always, additional children go half price.

The safety of audiences and staff throughout Kids Week is our highest priority. Our industry-wide See it Safely mark, displayed at theatres across London, assures theatregoers that participating venues are following the latest Government guidance for live arts events.

Kids Week bookers can benefit from our ‘Book with Confidence, Exchange with Ease’ pledge, allowing them the opportunity to be able to exchange up to 24 hours prior to a performance if they are unable to attend due to Covid. As in previous years, we have set up an Access Priority Request Form for theatregoers with access requirements, available from 12pm on Friday 25 June until 6pm on Sunday 27 June.

We will assist with your trip planning by recommending the safest ways to travel to and from our theatres, the majority of which are within walking distance of a main line station or Q-Park car park (which offer parking discounts to theatregoers).

This year we sadly won’t be able to offer our show-linked activities, but we will be running a special programme of free theatre-themed activities in partnership with the Mayor of London, with more details coming soon. We will also be highlighting a host of other London activities in partnership with the Let’s Do London campaign, to ensure you make the most of your trip.

Emma De Souza, Kids Week founder and Head of Marketing & Communications at SOLT, said: 

‘After an incredibly hard year for the theatre industry, it is a joy to bring back Kids Week – we know how much of a beloved and hotly-anticipated part of the theatrical calendar it is! We cannot wait to welcome regulars and first-time families back into the West End this summer to enjoy the magic of a live show. 

‘Theatre is nothing without its audiences, and we are so grateful to everybody who can support Kids Week and help our industry rebuild. Please treat yourself and your family, and enjoy the best theatre that London has to offer.’
