Christmas Orchestral Adventure

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!

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!

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.

  1. I am glad you had a great time, I made my first visit to The Royal Albert Hall earlier this year and I thought the building itself was wonderful!

  2. 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!”….

    1. This looks like a great experience and I agree that it is a good way to introduce children to the world of the orchestra

  3. It’s so lovely that the conductor got the audience to take part where they could – it must make it feel super magical!

  4. 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.

  5. We have Christmas Eve and Christmas Day traditions but nothing else. Id love to take my little boys to something like this Or a show but I’m worried they wouldn’t sit still or pay attention.

  6. Yes, the Albert Hall is stunning. I had no idea that they put on shows like this for children. Looks amazing so will keep in mind for next year. Thankyou.

  7. A lovely treat for you. The Royal Albert Hall looks great. The acoustics likely wonderful. Orchestral music, a truly wonderful treat, and suitable for all ages. Allows for a great family event, building beautiful, happy memories.

  8. Sounds absolutely amazing and something different to do with the family at this magical time of year thanks for the review

  9. That sounds exactly like my kind f thing. Love classical music, love the theatre and I definitely love Christmas… Nice to see you had loads of fun. I think I might just book to go next year, a little treat to myself. X

  10. Looks amazing and so magical with all the lights and decorations. Not somewhere I have ever thought about going to but will certainly have a look at what’s on next year!

  11. I have never been to The Royal Albert Hall but have seen it on TV many times and it is a stunning building. I imagine it will be 10 times better actually being there.

  12. Looks like you had an amazing time. It has to be the traditional pantomime for us each year, as it’s always so much fun.

  13. We’ve been checking out the Royal Albert Hall website since reading your post. The events for children and families are excellent and there is even useful information such as how to get there. Thank you for your post.

  14. I’ve never been to the Royal Albert Hall, but it should be on my bucket list. The impact of hearing a full orchestra in there must be immense

  15. I see the Royal Albert Hall has some really good shows for children in 2020 including the Gruffalo. We hope to attend one.

  16. I notice there are some new words for children to learn – or new meanings to words they already know – such as circle, as well as having loads of fun. We will be visiting soon!
