A fun packed half term for kids at the Royal Opera House


The half term fun kicks off with Opera Dots, a fun and introductory workshop for our youngest fans (aged 3 months to 5 years). With singing, music and laughter, tiny tots are sure to leave the building smiling. Later that day, there’s a chance to then watch the professional in action during Recitals at Lunch (1pm to 2pm) in the Crush Room (aged 14+).

Budding dancers can get involved with our World Ballet Day events on Wednesday 23 October, perfecting their pliés in Dance with the Royal Ballet (£10 per ticket, aged 12 upwards) or perhaps joining in with sensory dance workshop, Ballet Dots for kids aged 12 months to 2.5 years. There’s also a chance to watch a free Monday Moves (12pm to 12.40pm), a dance performance by artists with a visual impairment and a free dance-themed Live at Lunch(1pm to 1.40pm, no ticket required).

On Friday 25October, visitors to the capital can drop into a free music performance at Live at Live (1pm to 1.45pm, no ticket required). Aspiring singers, aged 14 years upwards can also take part in Sing at the Royal Opera House (2.15pm to 3.30pm, £10pp) trying their hand at some of opera biggest tunes in the picturesque Paul Hamlyn Hall.

The action packed, immersive Family Sunday (11am to 3pm, £8 to £10) on 27 October rounds up the end of a jam-packed week of fun.
