"This weekend, the Royal Opera House launches its Family Sundays programme – welcoming children, their parents and carers into the building for a packed day of activities. In recognition of the NHS’s tireless work over the course of the pandemic, tickets for the first event are half-price for doctors, nurses, porters and other healthcare support workers.
Fabulous Creatures, our inaugural Family Sunday, will take place on Sunday 12 September. Running across two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, it will offer a range of activities led by ROH staff, artists and partner companies – all designed to suit families with children aged between three and 10. Visitors can expect puppetry in the Clore Studio; Thick & Tight performances in the Paul Hamlyn Hall; a five-piece ensemble, made up of players from the Orchestra of the ROH, playing in the Linbury Foyer; craft fun in the Crush Room; as well as singing, dancing and animation workshops across the site."
