What it means to be participating in Kids for Kids

Aside from being a fantastic way to showcase their talents and a wonderful family night out, Kids for Kids can mean so much more for your child. The show has been bringing out young Kiwis together for the past 22 years,teaching them to raise their voices for children around the world. It's a journey that encourages empathy, respect and humility and helps shape them into true global citizens.

How do I purchase tickets?

Tickets will be on sale approximately one month prior to the concert and is available through the ticketing agent handling the venue for your school. All ticketing information will be on the Dates and Locations page as soon as they are on sale. The concerts are normally booked out in advance and we recommend pre-booking your tickets to avoid disappointment.

What is the cost of the ticket?

Ticket prices vary depending on the venue. We try to keep the ticket price as low as we can, to allow as many families as possible to see their children perform. We really appreciate you purchasing a concert ticket as it helps cover the cost of staging this wonderful event, but it's important to note that the ticket cost doesn't go to World Vision's development in Tanzania. To find out more about this work and how you can continue your child's journey to becoming a true global citizen, have a chat with a World Vision rep at the Kids for Kids show.
