Our Christmas Orchestral Adventure at the Royal Albert Hall

Bonjour lecteurs! Do you have any Christmas traditions as a family? A day out you have each year? A show you always go and see? Or even a movie you religiously watch? We have always kept it quite simple so far. Santa’s Grotto was our way to do it. But this year, we were lucky to be invited to the fabulous Christmas Orchestral Adventure at the Royal Albert Hall. And let me tell you, this is something I want to do each year!

Christmas With The Royal Albert Hall

The so fameux concert hall in South Kensington has a lovely festive programme this year again.

If you are a music lover or fancy a lovely day out with your family, have a look at the performances still on until the start of January.

Our Christmas Orchestral Adventure

Christmas has begun for sure at the Royal Albert Hall. And we might have found a new family tradition to enjoy 🙂

The show is calling all Santa’ little helpers out there! Albert’s Orchestra were back this year again for you to enjoy some classical music with all the family.

L’histoire was really sweet for the occasion. Indeed, Father Christmas has lost his map on a practice run of his delivery route… Oh, non!

So you need to help him to get it back to be ready for the big day!

Well, the Christmas Orchestral Adventure should be on your list for next year!

The show is fun and engaging. We were among a really excited audience taking part in some musical and singing challenges and we had such a lovely time!

The symphony orchestra brought us into a festive world of adventures.

Featuring a bear, some Christmas jumpers (they had to!) and lots of lovely Christmas tunes, the show was pure magic.

We danced, we clapped and enjoyed the view from the circle. We even went on a bear hunt!!! If that is not mega fun, what is it?

The conductor and his team did a great job of getting the public to take part and I saw many little ones’ faces with sparkles in their eyes.

Baba was well into it. No need to say that he had a blast!

After nearly 2 hours of fun and giggles, while singing along with the crowd (very badly in my case!), we left the concert hall with smiles on our faces. And ready to enjoy Christmas next week!

Christmas Orchestral Adventure – Le Verdict

I have been to many ‘grown-up’ shows at the Royal Albert Hall and it was always a great experience. The hall is always stunning, and it was clearly Christmas ready for the occasion.

But, the Christmas Orchestral Adventure did not disappoint. The story is sweet and engaging for all the family to have fun.

    What a lovely experience for you all – one of the advantages of living in or very close to the capital. Sadly, here where I live, there’s nothing remotely similar, but our tradition is to take the boys to a local panto each year, be it professional or put on by their school. There’s always good fun to be had. “Oh, yes there is!”….

    This sounds like a great Christmas experience for children.

  17. December 19, 2019 / 8:59 am

    I also think it’s a great idea to introduce children to ‘proper’ music from the earliest possible age. If they’re used to hearing classical music at home, all well and good. But if they’ve been brought up on a diet of pop music and children’s songs, it’s good to let them know there are other sorts of music out there too.
