We welcome children and we do not impose an age limit. Tickets for children are charged at full price, however, children of three years and under can be admitted free of charge and without a ticket providing they remain seated on an adult’s lap. Please be aware that the Show contains some loud noises throughout the performance, including special effects, which some young children may find upsetting.
