Royal Albert Hall Space Themed Activities for Children

Royal Albert Hall for Children:

It might be a distance from Bristol, but the Royal Albert Hall has a series of fantastic looking space-themed family music events on during half term.

London is easy to get to from Bristol with First Great Western, National Express, Sn-ap or Megabus.

Events taking place at The Hall include:

My Great Orchestral Adventure
Saturday 26 May 2018, Auditorium
Aliens have arrived on planet Earth and they are not happy! The record player on their spaceship is broken and instead of bringing musical messages of intergalactic peace, it’s doing the complete opposite! We need to travel through outer space to help save the world! Along the way we’ll make friends with aliens, waltz in zero gravity and enjoy sunrise symphonies, all without leaving the Royal Albert Hall’s magical auditorium. You decide what happens next by voting which way we should travel! We’ll be singing, dancing and best of all, a full symphony orchestra will bring our adventure to life.

A Strange New Space
Tuesday 29 May 2018, Elgar Room
A Strange New Space is Tessa Bide’s non-verbal, one-woman show aimed at children aged 4-10 years old, and follows the journey of space-obsessed Amira, who dreams of becoming an astronaut. The show melds physical theatre with stunning puppetry and original music. We travel on an imagined voyage into space, paralleled with Amira’s real-life journey as a refugee across continents, forming an unforgettable introduction to theatre for young audiences.

Albert Einstein: Relativitively Speaking (Junior Edition)

Tangram Theatre returns to the Hall’s Elgar Room to present their family theatre show celebrating the 20th century’s most brilliant thinker as part of the Festival of Science: Space. Join Albert, the genius behind the übercoolest moustache in science, for a lecture like none you’ve ever seen.

Engsonglopedia of Science
Wednesday 30 May 2018, Elgar Room
John Hinton presents his new science-based family show in the Elgar Room as part of the Hall’s inaugural Festival of Science: Space.

Expect the unexpected, and expect it to rhyme!

Albert’s Band Presents: To Infinity and Beyond
