  • Visitor Information

Kids WeekIt's now over a decade since the excellent idea of Kids Week was first conjured up. A truly inspired summer treat for families, Theatreland is available for free to excitable tots and teens for the whole month of August. Children aged 5 to 16 years can see an awesome selection of dazzling West End hits gratis - as long as an adult pays the full price - and another two children can go half price. The 2014 shows include Aliens Love Underpants, The Elephantum, The Tiger Who Came To Tea, What The Ladybird Heard, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Lion King, Hetty Feather, Horrible Histories, I Believe in Unicorns, Mamma Mia!, Matilda the Musical, Les Miserables, War Horse and many more. Tickets for the most popular shows go fast, so it's best not to make any promises until you've booked. Aside from the shows themselves, there's a whole raft of free children's activities. Kids can peek backstage, participate in workshops, dabble with make-up, learn to dance, scribble a few lines in writing classes and even sing with the cast. It's a fantastic initiative and one which can only inspire kids' enthusiasm for the stage in later life.
