Relaxed Performance with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

 

Join the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for a playful introduction to the amazing world of orchestral music! Featuring 25 musicians and internationally renowned presenter Tim Steiner performing a range of music in ways you’ve never imagined, this event is specially designed to be welcoming for people who may find traditional concerts challenging to attend, including adults and children with learning disabilities, movement disorders, autistic spectrum disorder, other neurological conditions, or those with young children or babies.

Including interactive elements, close-up experiences of the musicians, BSL interpretation, Makaton singalong, and gentle sensory elements, this performance is Relaxed, so attendees are welcome to enjoy the concert without worry. There will be opportunities to sing, dance, move about or just listen to the world-class music as preferred, and ‘chill out’ spaces will be available for anyone needing some quiet time before re-entering the auditorium. At the end of the concert, optional post-show activities will invite you to try your hand at a range of musical activities, led by the RPO musicians themselves.

*Audience members with vision or hearing impairments are invited to join members of the Orchestra for a short pre-concert sensory tour from 13:15. If you would like to book this tour, please email [email protected], with Sensory Tour in the subject title, no later than 24hrs before the start of the performance.

**Social stories introducing the venue and the show will be distributed in advance of performances.


Sit or lie on mats on the floor, close to the Orchestra and totally relaxed. Perfect for families with young children.

For more information or to book seating on the Stalls floor, please select the ‘Accessible tickets’ in the front stalls or call the box office on 01724 290657 between 10am and 12.30pm on weekdays.
