Kids Shows Book Ahead

There are so many kids shows in Brisbane you can be forgiven for not being able to see them all. From live theatre through to good old fashioned Playschool on tour, there are so many different shows and concerts for kids. This means that whether your Brisbane Kid is 10 and loves musicals or is 18 months old and can’t sit still, Brisbane will still have something for you!

Some tips and tricks for a great experience is to see where the show is being held. Is there parking? How long does it go for? Is there a standing/sitting section for little ones? Is there a sensory session? Is there an interval and will you be able to purchase refreshments or alternatively, are you able to bring your own snacks and drinks. If the kids show, theatre or musical has played elsewhere it can be worth heading online to search for reviews, especially to find out if it is age appropriate, was it engaging enough for little ones, and clever enough for the older ones.

You can often find ticket giveaways on websites like Brisbane Kids and presale discounts or early bookings when you sign up at places like Ticketek or if you are a visa card holder.

The Queensland Government and QAGOMA have just announced that Australia's first Marvel- related exhibition will take place in Brisbane from May through to September 2017 which is great news for both big and little Brisbane... Read More
