Kids Week, the annual London theatre initiative, returns for the whole of August 2016, with more than 30 shows offering free tickets for children.

Now in its 19th year, Kids Week encourages young people to experience the magic of 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 or postage fees.

As always, there are shows to cater for all ages from under 5s to teenagers, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Comedy About a Bank Robbery, Horrible Histories – The Best of Barmy Britain, Mamma Mia!, The Mousetrap, The Railway Children, Wicked and Kinky Boots – the winner of MasterCard Best New Musical Award at the Olivier Awards 2016.

Children can also take part in a fantastic range of free activities and events on stage and backstage at many of the West End’s iconic venues, often with the cast and crew of the resident shows.

In addition to 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.

Full show and activity listings to be announced in due course. Tickets for Kids Week go on sale at 10am on Tuesday 14th June at
