What’s On at Half Moon

Half Moon’s full autumn season is now on sale, full details of which you’ll find below. In September, we’re also hosting a piece of theatre for adult audiences -The Royal Duchess Superstore – as part of the one-off Neighbourhood @ Half Moon season.

Experience quality children’s theatre for less with Half Moon at our Limehouse venue. We’re proud to keep our tickets affordable at just £6 each, some of the cheapest theatre tickets in London.

Half Moon’s regular season of children’s theatre and theatre for young people runs from September to April at our East London venue. We programme some shows and special events during the rest of the year, but on a less frequent basis. See the events below for what’s on in East London at Half Moon this week and beyond.

If you are a school or other community group looking to book a show, please see our Schools Shows page. It is often possible to programme an additional performance of one of our Half Moon presents shows, at Half Moon or your own setting.

Please note: Age ranges are recommended by the visiting companies. They serve as a guide only and we welcome siblings or other children from outside of the age range.
