Free Childcare Performances

Yes, you can see a show at the Belfry and we’ll take care of your kids! 

To help young parents experience the Belfry, we offer inexpensive tickets and free childcare (for children aged 3 – 10) for young families on select weekend afternoons.

The dates for these childcare matinees are:

Saturday, September 16   4pm matinee
Sunday, September 24   2pm matinee

Saturday, October 21   4pm matinee
Sunday, October 29   2pm matinee

Saturday, January 27   4pm matinee
Sunday, February 4   2pm matinee

Saturday, April 21   4pm matinee
Sunday, April 29   2pm matinee

Your children will be looked after by a trained, professional ECE, only a short stroll away from the theatre.

You can sign your children up when you buy individual tickets for any of these shows, or as part of a season ticket package. Childcare space must be reserved in advance, at least 1 week prior to your chosen performance.

Plans change? You can swap between matinees within the same show, or give your ticket and childcare spot to another parent friend – simply let us know by the Friday before your performance.

To learn more, please email us at, or call the box office at 250-385-6815 to reserve your tickets and free childcare.
