The annual London theatre initiative Kids Week (www.kidsweek.co.uk) returns this summer from 1 to 31 August 2015 with an exciting line-up of more than 40 top London shows offering free tickets for children.
Now in its 18th year and run by Society of London Theatre, Kids Week is all about encouraging young people and their families to experience the magic of live theatre. During Kids Week a child aged 16 or under can go free to participating shows when accompanied by an adult paying full price. Up to two extra children's tickets can also be purchased at half price, per transaction.
Kids Week also has a fantastic range of free activities and events - many new ones and others that are back by popular demand! Children can take a Billy Elliot The Musical ballet class, or take part in a storytelling workshop for I Believe In Unicorns. Under 5s are invited to meet The Gruffalo or enjoy fun activities with Aliens Love Underpants and, for older children, there's the chance to perform the choreographic moves from the hit musical Jersey Boys, go backstage with The Mousetrap to meet the current cast of the longest-running play in the world, learn some of Wicked's secrets or discover the art of improvisation from The Play That Goes Wrong.
All the Kids Week activity listings can be found at www.kidsweek.co.uk
In addition to the free children's tickets, families will be able to enjoy Kids Eat Free meal deals at selected London restaurants and take advantage of travel and hotel offers.
Tickets for Kids Week go on sale at 10:00 on Tuesday 16 June at www.kidsweek.co.uk or via the dedicated ticket hotline on 0844 248 5151. Kids Week is supported by Ticketmaster and there are no booking or postage fees.
