West End Kids Week: How to get free tickets as sale starts

In just over two months, Kids Week will kick off across West End shows in London. 

Taking place between August 1-31, Kids Week allows children aged 17 and under to watch some of the biggest and best shows currently on the West End for free.

The annual event works when an accompanying adult pays full price, giving two free tickets and then two additional children’s tickets for half price and no booking fees.

Kids Week aims to help introduce everyone to the theatre as well as give families more affordable activities to enjoy over the summer. 

How to get Kids Week tickets to a London theatre show

Tickets for Kids Week go on sale at 10am on Tuesday, June 13 and will be available on the Official London Theatre website

Last year, nearly all of the tickets sold out so you will need to be quick as there are only a select few available per show.
