This highly interactive concert will captivate young children with its mix of music and audience participation. Join in the fun foyer activities before the concert – become maestro of our multi‑coloured instrument collection, make your own animal masks and take part in drawing workshops! With a bit of our expert help, you’ll be ready to audition, just like Stan and Mabel!
Paul Rissmann’s musical adventure Stan and Mabel is a fantastic introduction for young people to classical music, so come and join children’s TV presenter Chris Jarvis as he narrates the story of how they came to audition for the ‘Greatest Orchestra in the World’.
This family festival is the cat’s pajamas, so you’d be barking not to book tickets.
