Take Your Tots to the Theatre for Free this August
Imagine how fantastic it would be to see a West End show during the school holidays, and to take your son or daughter in for free. You can also book tickets for two children at half price for each of them, just as long as you accompany them. Kids Week actually runs for the whole of August and is a terrific way to introduce school children to the theatre.

should appeal to young and old alike and will make history fun for those who think it is boring, whilst The Woman in Black will probably have a few youngsters gripping their parents' hands, War Horse will cause a few tears to be shed and One Man, Two Guvnors will have you holding your sides with laughter. If your offspring can't be weaned away from the telly, why not book to see Brainiac Live?

Many of the productions are accompanied by Q&A sessions or specially themed workshops. To tie in with the event, there will also be a selection of standalone activities during August. These will include drama and puppetry workshops, as well as an introduction to designing theatre posters.

And if your little darlings get easily bored when travelling, you can even download a crossword puzzle and a colouring sheet from the Kids Week website.

Tickets for all events can be booked through the website, or by using Ticketmaster's phone hotline.
