About our events

No-one ever forgets the first time they heard a live orchestra – and we’re here to make that moment special!

Both Notelets and Family Concerts are specifically designed for families are approximately an hour long. They are created with younger listeners in mind, and offer the perfect introduction to orchestral music - no matter how old you are! We also have other family friendly concerts, which last a little bit longer and usually have an interval.

Join us for FREE craft activities up to an hour before every Family Concert and Notelets performance!

All Notelets and Family Concerts are BSL interpreted.
