Experience quality children’s theatre for less with Half Moon at our Limehouse venue. We’re proud to keep our tickets affordable at just £7 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.
