Wicked Wednesdays offers family fun this summer

Wicked Wednesdays has launched at Thameside Theatre this month, offering a tremendous deal for family fun throughout the summer holiday.

This exciting scheme offers two free adult tickets for every child ticket purchased at the Thameside Theatre – child tickets cost just £5. To make the offer even more tantalising, each child will receive popcorn and a drink!

The offer is available on a range of films showing on Wednesdays this summer:

  • Despicable Me 3 (U) – Wednesday 8 August
  • Frozen (PG) – Wednesday 15 August
  • Cars 3 (U) – Wednesday 22 August
  • Moana (PG) – Wednesday 29 August

Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult to all film screenings. Alternatively, adults are welcome to come along to a showing with tickets costing only £5 per person.

After enjoying the film, families can make the most of the dinner and theatre experience. Just a short walk from the theatre, R.Mumford and Son, New Delhi and Spice of India are all offering a discount if you show a theatre ticket for a performance that day.

Cllr Deborah Huelin, portfolio holder for communities, said: "Wicked Wednesdays is an amazing offer for all families across Thurrock.

"With a movie showing every week throughout the school holidays, it’s a bargain that just can’t be missed as we continuously strive to offer our residents great value for money experiences in the borough."

Tickets can be booked online at or by calling the box office on 0345 300 5264.
