Kids Week: kids go free to London shows
If you want to take your tykes to London's West End (without the price tag), August is the time to do it. For Kids Week, which is actually a month, there are offers on everything, from smaller shows of classic stories like the Wind in the Willows and the Hunting of the Snark, to big name performances like the Lion King, Matilda, and Aladdin. Book now: tickets go fast.
Bonus: carry on the fun by taking them out to tea at the Genie's Cave afterwards.
