We love taking our little ones to the theatre, and with it being the Summer Holidays what better excuse to take the children to see a show. In particular if you’re thinking about taking children to a West End Show this Summer you should take a look at “Kids Week”. Basically children go free at West End Theatres for the whole of August, when you buy at least 1 full priced adult ticket. Check out the website here. Available at some great shows including Gangster Granny, Horrible Histories, The Jungle Book, School of Rock, The Tiger Who Came to Sea and We’re Going on a Bearhunt.
