Disney musicals like The Lion King and Frozen are great family theatre options — not only will the kids love the familiar songs and characters, but adults will also enjoy the nostalgia and timeless stories these shows provide. You can also see a show like Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, based on the beloved children's book and movie series, or The Play That Goes Wrong, with nonstop physical comedy that will make audiences of all ages roar with laughter. Certain educational shows are also tailored specifically toward very young kids, so you can take your toddler to their first live theatre experience.

Frequently asked questions

What is the age requirement for children to attend the theatre?

West End theatres typically admit children ages 5 and older. Beyond that, it varies by venue and show. Some shows are recommended for older age groups (even if children are technically admitted), and some will restrict entry to older theatregoers. Conversely, shows geared specifically toward children will typically not have an age minimum, but an adult must also attend.

Do children require a separate ticket to attend a show?

Yes, children require a separate ticket to attend a show. Certain exceptions may be made for infants at shows specifically designed for young kids, but generally, children sit in their own seat and must therefore have their own ticket.
