The annual Kids Week returns to the West End in August, with tickets available from today.

The event aims to encourage children of all ages and their families to experience live theatre, by offering free children's tickets (under 16s) to a host of West End shows throughout August.

At selected performances, one under 16 can go free with each full-paying adult. Two extra children’s tickets can also be purchased at half price. 37 shows are taking part in the offer this year, from big West End names such as The Lion King and Matilda, to children's classics including The Tiger Who Came to Tea.

In addition to catching the shows on stage, children have the chance to get more hands-on with workshops and activities including puppet making at The Lion King, a musical workshop at Beatles-themed Let It Be and a post-show Q&A at Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. There are limited tickets for these activities, so book sooner rather than later.

There are minimum age restrictions for certain shows. Avenue Q, Ghost Stories and Jersey Boys are among those aimed at the 15+ audience.

Kids Week 2014 runs (somewhat confusingly) 1-31 August. Tickets are available now online or via the dedicated phone line 0844 248 5151.
