Billy Elliott, Million Dollar Quartet and Mamma Mia performing at free Kids Week Launch

Marcus Brigstocke was King Arthur in tour of Spamalot last year and is currently playing Perks in the Railway Children at Waterloo Station.  He will be hosting the free launch of Kids Week at the Royal Festival Hall on 10th August.

Kids Week  is now in its 14th year of giving children the chance to experience London’s world-leading theatre for free and take a peek behind the scenes. Kids Week offers one child aged 16 or younger a free ticket to a participating show with every full paying adult. A further two children can also go at half price as part of the deal.

It runs this year for three weeks from 12th August to 4th September with more than 30 shows taking part with something for all ages ranging from The Tiger Who Came To Tea and Disney’s The Lion King through to Legally Blonde, Betty Blue Eyes, Jersey Boys and The Phantom of the Opera.  

The launch event will run from 14:00 to 17:00 and feature performances from the casts of Billy Elliot The Musical, Mamma Mia! and Million Dollar Quartet plus magic courtesy of David Wood, whose adaptation of The Tiger Who Came To Tea is playing at the Vaudeville.

The tiger will be at the launch demonstrating some Tiger-Aerobics - which is one of the free activities on offer plus a taster session with English National Ballet, the chance to learn a Mamma Mia! dance routine and a West End singalong.
