Family Sundays at the Royal Opera House – Wonder Women

Bonjour lecteurs! If you follow our adventures on Instagram too, you might have seen a couple of weeks ago that we had a busy weekend with Nanny S! She met us in London and we were off for a fabulous day out in town! As we really enjoyed experiencing Family Sundays at the Royal Opera House for Baba’s birthday, I was delighted to be invited again. Especially when the theme this time was all about Wonder Women! You know me and how much I love empowering ladies, so we needed to be there! And we tell you all about it and why we loved it again so much!

Family Sundays at the Royal Opera House

As I previously explained in during our other visit, Family Sundays at the Royal Opera House are taking place every month or so. Each time, it gives you and your family l’opportunité to discover more about the world of the ballet and the opera.

If anything, it makes a fabulous day out in London for only £10 per person. Each event is packed with so many activities for over 4 hours of fun and learning. Make a note in your diary now! The next one will be taking place on the 14th of April (Staggering Seafarers).

The Royal Opera House is a must-see!

Fancy a look at the last one we were lucky to attend? C’est parti!

Listen to Some Opera & More

As the theme was Wonder Women this time, no tea party! But it was as lovely as always to be able to sit down on the ground floor and listen to music while having some refreshments.  The whole place is very spacious indeed and during the entire event, there is always some music and some good show!

We were actually very lucky to witness a mini ballet while having some lunch and I must say that we were very impressed by the costumes!

And we got our own spectacle while enjoying our lunch!

The day is made so that the entire family can have fun! Although Family Sundays at the Royal Opera House are scheduled with some exciting creative activities and workshops, you can simply relax and enjoy the music.

Fun Activities for the Little Ones

It is all so well organised! Once we climbed the gorgeous stairs by the entrance on Bow Street, two workshops were all set up so that we could make our own masks. It was like being in Venice! How lovely! Baba simply enjoyed scribbling but children could also make a dagger!

All the essentials to produce the most beautiful creations were prepared on a long table so that everyone could join in the fun at the same time. Less queue for more fun!

Amazed by the beauty of a ballerina…

We also attended a vocals’ lesson on the first floor in the luminous room. And because it is so spacious, you can simply sit down and enjoy the music while children try un peu de musique!

Baba was warming up his voice. Ready to sing?

And Dressing Up Too

Another stair and we were able to dress up as characters of the opera! Baba went for a cape very Dom Juan in my opinion, but there was also a large choice of tutus for little girls to dream of being a ballerina!

Beautiful costumes all over the place

Have a look at my stories on Instagram. I managed to capture Baba checking himself out with his cape and he is hilarious! He was very serious. Maybe I have a future baryton in the house?

Sparkles in the air, dreams in children’s head, there was so much going on on the second floor!

A Bit of Colouring

And because Family Sundays at the Royal Opera House are aimed at people with kids, the restaurant area had also been transformed into a colouring station.

And children can also be creative while learning about the place’s architecture

You can sit down, enjoy some drinks and food while having an amazing view on the rest of the audience.

All the audience was eager to take part in a ballet lesson. We were having drinks in the restaurant section 🙂

It is bright and you have it all ready so that you can have a little break if you fancy.

Family Sundays at the Royal Opera House – Le Verdict

Once again our, Family Sundays at the Royal Opera House did not disappoint. The whole concept is simply genius and if you are a family in London (or you are planning on having a trip in the big town this year), have a look at the next dates!

Enjoying the music with such a view is something for a three-year-old…

The Royal Opera House staff is extremely friendly and every cast members we came across were so nice. Plus, they naturally involved kids in the activities planned each time. I absolutely love the concept to open the doors of such a magic place.

Don’t get fooled! This lady was lovely 🙂

No need to be a fan of ballet or opera to attend. It is simply a lovely day out, an experience you need to tick the box in your long list of must-sees in London.

It is exciting and fun with a je ne sais quoi that would make dream adults as well as children.

Each time we visited Family Sundays at the Royal Opera House, I have seen all generations of people with a big smile on their face and stars in their eyes.

A magical ambience with the beautiful music

A dream come true in the modern jungle that is London! A must-see! I already told you and I repeat myself, encore et encore. That’s it!

Disclosure: We were kindly invited by the Royal Opera House to attend this Family Sunday. All opinions in this post are my own. And we also received a goodie bag. See our stories to see all our lovely presents too!
