Kids Week: Free Theatre Tickets for Kids Is Back For 2023!

Kids Week: Free Theatre Tickets for Kids Is Back For 2023!

Kids London Theatre Week Is Back! Grab a free child ticket with every paid for adult ticket

During Kids London Theatre Week 2023, (it's actually for the whole month of August, not just a week anymore!), a child goes free to one of nearly 50 London theatre productions when accompanied by a full-paying adult throughout August. There is a wide selection of shows to visit for children to experience the magic of live theatre, ranging from award-winning plays, perhaps taking in a spectacular musical, to enjoy the live music, with a range of performances to suit even younger children so that the whole family can get involved, perhaps enjoying live there for the very first time.

A child 17 and under gets a free ticket when accompanied by a full-paying adult .. Plus, two additional children can attend for half price! When booking, tickets will appear at their half-price cost (the same deal as one full-price adult and one free child!), so you need to buy the same number of tickets as the total attendees, children and adults.

There are no booking fees or no postage fees to pay when booking the theatre tickets.

There are 250,000 tickets available for live show performances taking place between 1st – 31st August, but the most popular performances sell out fast due to popular demand, and the ticket release has already opened, so tickets are already out to buy, and demand has been high, so make sure you have a 2nd choice available as the really big shows are reportedly already sold out; so you have to be super quick to book! You can book a maximum of eight tickets per show (one free child per paying adult)

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.

You'll see which seats are available during the booking process. You can book a maximum of eight tickets per show (one free child per paying adult).

Plenty of shows for kids of all ages during London Theatre Week in August 2023

All performances with attached Kids Week activities have a star next to them on the calendar on the kids week website. Some of these are open to all attendees of a performance, like a post-show q&a, backstage tours and post-show talks and a wide range of activities. With these extra activities, there is limited capacity, so booking this performance doesn’t guarantee an activity space. Once you’ve booked your tickets, you'll get an email with details of how to book the free activities, so keep your eyes peeled.
