About this event

Proms Plus Family workshops are the perfect introduction to the music you’ll be hearing at the Proms. Fun and interactive, the workshops engage with children of all ages and abilities so that they really get the most out of the music.

Join Rachel Leach for a free family-friendly introduction to Prom 56. Whether you’re a budding astronomer or fascinated by Roman gods, there’s something to capture everyone’s imagination in Holst’s awe-inspiring suite The Planets, from marching Mars to jolly Jupiter. Schoenberg was a pioneer who took sound to thrilling new places, and Scriabin’s Prometheus: The Poem of Fire is like a fireworks display of musical colour.

Professional musicians will be on hand at the workshop to bring the music to life, and if you have instruments of your own, bring them along and join in! 

Suitable for ages 7-plus.

How to book Proms Plus Family workshops are free to attend and take place at the Royal College of Music. Workshops are unticketed so booking is not necessary but capacity is limited. Doors open 30 minutes before the events begin and entry is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Proms Plus Family workshops take place before Proms which have been selected with families in mind, so when they're finished, you can pop over to the Royal Albert Hall, sit back and relax, and enjoy the concert. Tickets for the Prom can be purchased through the Royal Albert Hall box office or you can Prom for £5 on the day.
