From the youngest fans to pre-teens and older, our guide covers everything from theatre, sport, concerts and music events. We have you covered when you’re looking for ideas to keep the little ones – and not so little ones! – entertained. Whether you want to make the most of half term or the summer holidays, or find tickets for some back to school treats, then look no further.
View all of our fun-packed ideas from family festival events in the great outdoors in the heart of the countryside and in locations across the UK. Or for those rainy days, why not check out an exciting exhibition or drop-in to a museum. Inspire an interest in culture and arts from an early age and catch a theatre show in the West End.
Our guide contains classic family favourites like Harry Potter and the Cursed Child for those looking for a mix of magic and music. Disney fans can enjoy a nostalgia trip with the award-winning The Lion King musical live on stage. If dancing is more your scene, why not catch the professionals from TV and watch the Strictly Come Dancing – The Professionals dance tour.
If you’re looking to keep the littlest ones entertained after the school holidays, create some priceless memories and meet TV character heroes, such as Peppa and family in Peppas Pig’s Best Day Ever! live on stage for a magical experience they won’t forget! Matilda the Musical is also a not to be missed show to delight adults and children alike as the timeless classic takes to the stage in Cambridge Theatre.
For young sports fans, why not check out the London Lions basketball at Copper Box Arena from September to next May. Cricket fans and family can also enjoy Vitality Blast in various locations across the UK until the end of September. Read more about all of our sports events in the Sports Guide.
Looking to keep the kids busy after the summer holidays? Keep the little ones content with an interactive adventure such as spending the day exploring the Crystal Maze Live Experience in London’s West End or in Manchester. Or enjoy a day trip to The Big Feastival in Alex Jame’s Farm in the idyllic Cotswolds – the perfect family day out full of feasting and fun!
We also have a selection of indoor events suitable for children – perfect for that rainy day!
Our guide also contains music events and concerts suitable for younger audiences and adults alike. Young fans can look forward to seeing fan favourites such as Little Mix and Jess Glynne live in concert this year. For more music and festival inspiration, see our Concerts & Tours Guide and Festival Finder.
Along with the different sections, you can search our guide by date range for family events or A-Z for an easy browsing experience.
