Experience the best of classical music for only £5 a seat with the BBC Symphony Orchestra's BBC SO Plus Family scheme. Involve the whole family and bring them to a family-friendly workshop at the Barbican followed by a classical music concert performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

What is BBC SO Plus Family?

BBC SO Plus Family is a series of free, family-friendly workshops which take place before six specially selected BBC Symphony Orchestra concerts at the Barbican, and which give family groups the chance to experience live classical music for just £5 a ticket (plus booking fee). These workshops are led by members of the orchestra and event presenters in a fun and interactive way, introducing you to the evening's concert. If you play an instrument bring it along as there will be a chance for you to join in. Your ticket includes a concert by the BBC SO in the Barbican Hall which takes place after the workshop.

Who can book BBC SO Plus Family?

BBC SO Plus Family is specifically designed for family groups with children between the ages of 8 and 16. At least one member of your group must be aged 16 or under. These concerts are not recommended for children under the age of 8.
