About the Event
A sparkling musical celebration of Festivals of Light for you and your little ones.
You'll find beautiful music by Handel, Dvorak, Debussy, Wolf, and many more, all brought to life by B'Opera with fun, games and interaction. Expect musical fireworks and maybe a pumpkin or two!
Concerts last around 35-40 minutes and are followed by nursery rhymes (we take requests!), playtime and free tea, coffee and snacks.
There's free parking around the church, baby change facilities and plenty of space for buggy parking inside.
What to expect:
Who we are:
B'Opera started six years ago with the question "What if we didn't exclude babies and toddlers from high-quality live music performances?" Performed by professional musicians, the concerts are multi-sensory, varied, fun, and full of story telling and ways for your little one to get involved and learn. Babies are mesmerised, and grown ups love the warm, relaxed atmosphere and the adult interaction with other audience members. It's a win win. There's free tea, coffee and snacks, and since we provide toys and activities after the concert, you might even get to drink that coffee while it's hot!
Our early bird 'buy one get one free' offer runs till midnight on Sat 16th September - you can choose to pay a ticket forward to one of the refugee families we work with, or invite someone to come with you. Simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what you'd like to do with your free ticket.
