The Royal Albert Hall presents The Festival of Science: Space! This half term

If you are looking for something a bit different to do with the children this half term here are some fun music and science filled options at the Royal Albert Hall in London. I’ll also be adding other science related events and activities over the next few days.

Aliens have arrived on planet Earth and they are not happy! The record player on their spaceship is broken and instead of bringing musical messages of intergalactic peace, it’s doing the complete opposite! We need to travel through outer space to help save the world! Along the way we’ll make friends with aliens, waltz in zero gravity and enjoy sunrise symphonies, all without leaving the Royal Albert Hall’s magical auditorium. You decide what happens next by voting which way we should travel! We’ll be singing, dancing and best of all, a full symphony orchestra will bring our adventure to life.

A Strange New Space is Tessa Bide’s non-verbal, one-woman show aimed at children aged 4-10 years old, and follows the journey of space-obsessed Amira, who dreams of becoming an astronaut. The show melds physical theatre with stunning puppetry and original music. We travel on an imagined voyage into space, paralleled with Amira’s real-life journey as a refugee across continents, forming an unforgettable introduction to theatre for young audiences.
