Transform your family night into a delight with four tips that won't break the bank | The Sun

IT’S time to end the summer holidays on a high.

As the countdown begins to the start of the new school term, take time to enjoy some treats together. And with deals on everything from desserts to days out, fun doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

A TOPPING TREAT: Opt for a family film night, complete with pizzas and chocolate. Make it a Tuesday night and you can get two for one on large or medium Domino’s pizzas.

Sainsbury’s also has Pizza Express favourites down from £5.50 to £2.75. Top it off with Haagen-Dazs Mini Cups Caramel Collection, now £3 for four at Sainsbury’s, saving £2.

TAKE A BOW: Knock the kids' socks off with a trip to the theatre in London’s West End. There are still a smattering of seats available for the end of Kids’ Theatre Week, which runs through August.

Seats for the Horrible Histories Terrible Tudors show start at £10.50. For £23.50, a fraction of the normal price, you can see hit show Wicked. Visit

MAKE A MEAL OF IT: Many restaurants and supermarket cafes are giving families a helping hand this summer with money off meals.

For a real treat, restaurant chain Bill’s is letting kids eat free Monday to Friday when an adult with them pays for a main course.

In M&S cafes, youngsters qualify for a free meal when you spend at least £5. At the weekend, kids can enjoy a free meal on Sundays when dining with an adult at The Real Greek, which has outlets across the country.

EARLY LEARNING: Get brains back in gear for the start of term by going on a family trip to a brilliant museum.
