The scheme aims to encourage young people and their families to visit the theatre more, offering a free ticket to every child aged 16 or under accompanied by a paying adult, and half price tickets for two additional children in the same group. There are no booking, postage or transaction fees.

As well as the performances, the scheme offers children  a chance to get involved in a wide range of free events, workshops and activities, with participating shows offering everything from storytelling and backstage tours to cast meet-and-greets and choreography.

Talking about the announcement Emma De Souza, Founder of Kids Week, said: “I’m very proud that Kids Week has reached so many families during its 21 years, as it is so important to get children into the habit of theatre-going and give them a fun and positive experience. I am thrilled to be partnering with LimbPower this year, a charity close to my heart as my son is a recent amputee. Their work is hugely important for building confidence and opening doors to new experiences for the children and families they support.”
