Kids Week – Free Theatre Tickets for Kids!

Kids Week – Free West End Theatre Tickets for Kids!

I can’t believe we didn’t know about this!

We went to see ‘What The Ladybird Heard’ at The Lyric Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue at the weekend

Our two, Emilia (nearly 6) and Lucas (nearly 4) absolutely loved it!

It was less than an hour long!

It was full of great songs!

It was very colourful and visual and, of course, followed a well known story!

I’ve since found out its part of a campaign to encourage young people to develop an interest in theatre.

Its called Kids Week.

Kids Week is all about encouraging young people to get involved in theatre.

A child aged 16 or under can go free to any participating show when accompanied by an adult paying full price.
