Southbank Sinfonia Family Concerts
What better way to kickstart your family’s weekend than with our new-look Family Concerts in London, jam-packed with fuel for the imagination?
Featuring a full orchestra, they mix live musical performance with specially created videos, sounds and theatrical lighting that immerse children and adults alike in an inspiring orchestral world.
Over three concerts through the year, join us on an adventure led by the players themselves and find out just what’s so exciting about classical music. After each concert, you’ll also have the chance to meet our friendly musicians and try out some of their instruments in the Cadogan Hall foyer.
These concerts are ideal for children aged 5 – 11 years, but parents and grandparents have just as much fun too!

What does it feel like to be a musical superhero?
One day, in the blink of an eye, the world of music was changed forever. By day, Beethoven was just an ordinary – albeit grumpy – guy. By night though, his incredible imagination blew wide open what was thought possible… and symphonies never sounded the same again.
Join us for a thrilling symphonic adventure as we search for a musical hero. On the way we’ll encounter titanic battles and incredible powers, all hidden within Beethoven’s mighty ‘Eroica’ Symphony. With 33 electrifying young players as your guides, you can also expect dramatic lighting effects and big screen projections that help to take you right inside the orchestra and the music being played.
After the concert you can discover your own inner-hero as you meet the musicians and try out some of their instruments in Cadogan Hall’s foyer.
