Kids Week, the annual London theatre initiative run by the Society of London Theatre, returns for the whole of August 2017, with more than 35 shows offering free tickets for children. This year marks the 20th Kids Week, which began in 1998 and over the years has reached over 1.2 million children and families.
Kids Week, one of the world’s longest running audience development initiatives, encourages young people to experience live theatre. During Kids Week one child aged 16 or under can go free to a wide range of participating shows when accompanied by an adult paying full price. In addition two extra children can go for half price, and there are no booking, postage or transaction fees.
Kids Week also has a fantastic range of free activities and events which includes everything from storytelling and backstage tours to choreography and stage combat workshops. The full activity listings can be found at KidsWeek.co.uk
Additionally, Kids Week ticket holders will be able to take advantage of a number of Kids Go Free deals on dining, tours and hotels. More information can be found on the Kids Week website.
