Visiting as a Family

Children at The Old Rep

All persons over the age of 18 months and younger than 16 are considered children. Any child over the age of 18 months who is able to sit unaided must have a ticket to attend the event. Children must be supervised at all times by a responsible adult over 16.

booster seats

We have a limited number of Booster seats available at The Old Rep. All you have to do is enquire with a member of our Front Of House team who will assist you. We recommend that you arrive early if your child requires one.

Family Arts Standards

The Old Rep is proud to hold the nationally recognised Family Arts Standards. We aim to offer an enjoyable experience for children and families.

Please do let us know if there is anything we can do to make your visit a little easier.


Babes in Arms

Babes in arms tickets for infants under 18 months, are charged at a nominal rate of £2 and are only available for family performances. If the performance is designed for children under 18 months, babes in arms tickets will not be available. Babes in arms must sit on the lap of a parent or guardian and will not have access to a seat of their own.

Family Tickets

Family tickets are available for selected performances. Please see the event page or ask our Box Office team for details. A family ticket admits a group of 4 with a maximum of 2 adults.

Age Suitability

We aim to provide age suitability recommendations for all of our performances, particularly family performances. Where possible, we will also provide details of any content that may be disturbing to children. This information is for guidance and we ask parents to use their discretion when selecting suitable events. Please see the event pages or ask our Box Office team for details.

Baby Changing Facilities

We have baby changing facilities in the accessible toilet in the Hinckley bar.

Buggies & Pushchairs

Buggies and pushchairs cannot be taken into the auditorium. Due to the age and structure of the building, storage space is limited and, while we try to accommodate them, we ask that patrons try avoid bringing buggies and pushchairs where possible.


We hope you will feel comfortable to breast feed your child at The Old Rep. If you would prefer some privacy, please speak to a member of staff who will be able to assist. 

Step Stools

We provide step stools in the toilets for small children. Please ask a member of staff if you cannot find one.
