We're frequently asked about shows suitable for children or family groups. Depending on the children's age and experience, many West End shows may be of broad interest. Kids from about 8 years up will enjoy HARRY POTTERMATILDA and THE LION KING, while young teenagers will like most of the musicals, and such plays as THE MOUSETRAP and THE WOMAN IN BLACK.

During the summer, several West End theatres with regular programming in the evening play host to kid-friendly family shows in the afternoon or even morning. Check the individual theatre box offices or websites for performance times and age-appropriateness, and be sure to ask about kids' prices of family deals.

THE ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO - Ambassadors Theatre
GANGSTA GRANNY - Garrick Theatre
HORRIBLE HISTORIES - Garrick Theatre
THE HUNTING OF THE SNARK - Vaudeville Theatre
13 - Ambassadors Theatre
WHAT THE LADYBIRD HEARD - Lyric Theatre

Of course, the more sophisticated or theatre-experienced the youngsters are, the more adventurous you can be. We've taken pre-teens to Shakespeare with great success. If you have any specific needs, or questions about specific shows, ask us.

London and its suburbs have a number of theatres that cater especially to children. Here are links to some of the best:


ARTS DEPOT PUPPET THEATRE BARGE
