Kids Week event is under way

Featuring more than 35 of London’s biggest shows, this year’s popular Kids Week event is now under way.

Celebrating its 20th year, the annual London theatre initiative which runs for the entire month of August has enlisted a wide range of major productions which will offer free tickets to performances.

During the event one child aged 16 or under can go free to participating shows when accompanied by an adult paying full price. In addition, two extra children can attend the performance for half price and there are no booking, postage or transaction fees.

As well as offering tickets for shows as different as The Hunting of the Snark, Wicked and Kinky Boots, Kids Week offers a variety of activities to keep the family entertained during the summer holiday period.

Kids Week ticket holders are able to take advantage of a number of Kids Go Free deals on dining, tours and workshops.
