Family Concerts

Suitable for ages 7 to 12

Presented in a fun and informative way, LSO Family Concerts feature music based on a theme and offer the chance for everyone to get involved by playing or singing along with the audience participation piece.

These concerts also include pre-concert activities and a crèche for younger children during the concert.

Pre-Concert Activities and Crèche

There are workshops in the Barbican foyers which take place before each concert. These differ for each concert but you’ll usually get the opportunity to meet LSO players and take part in musical activities. 

Please be aware that the pre-concert foyer activities are hugely popular and usually operate on a first come, first served basis. 

We also provide a crèche for use during the concert for younger siblings. Those with children under the age of 7 are encouraged to use the crèche, and must book places in advance.
