An afternoon at the theatre is a great way to entertain the kids this half term. And with tickets starting from just £15, it can be an affordable treat too. Why not tick some of the West End’s biggest shows off yours and your little ones’ must-see lists? For some suggestions that won’t disappoint, check out our top six recommendations here.
1. Mary Poppins
If they’ve seen the original and the marvellous remake, why not complete the three and see it on stage too? Not only is it fun to sing along to, but it’s a real classic all ages can appreciate.

Half-term might mean a break from school and seeing teachers, but the lovely Ms Honey doesn’t count. Let’s see if your little ones can use their magic powers to keep quiet during the show!

3. The Lion King
The costumes and choreography make The Lion King a really special experience. Again, if you and your little ones love the original and the remake, seeing it on stage too really brings the story to life.

We can’t recommend Wicked enough. Even those who’ve seen the show before come back time again to see the incredible cast and magical story. Again, this really is one for the whole family, from grandchild to grandparents!

5. School of Rock
Are your little ones ready to rock? The energetic, fun filled show will leave them all sung out and wiped out. Don’t forget to bring your air guitar skills and best dance moves - they’ll be needed!
Not only is Big a funny and magical story, but it’s a great lesson for the children: don’t grow up too soon! This show is guaranteed to make everyone watching appreciate the innocence and beauty of childhood again.
