A lively and engaging concert for all the family.

FUNharmonics family concerts are the perfect way to introduce the joy of classical music to the whole family. Concerts start at 12 noon, are one hour long, and are especially designed for children. Each concert is fast-paced and includes a presenter on stage, who breaks down the music or tells a story to keep our youngest audience members engaged and enthralled. There is also a big screen showing images projected behind the Orchestra, and always plenty of audience participation to get everyone joining in!

Make a day of it 

Your concert ticket includes a fabulous array of free musical activities in the foyer spaces at the Royal Festival Hall before the concert begins, so the whole family can make a day of your visit. This could include drop-in workshops showcasing orchestral instruments or exploring the themes of the concert, singing sessions, or even our popular “Have a Go” opportunities, where children can try out instruments of the orchestra.
