TICKETS: £20-£45.50

Christmas at the Royal Albert Hall is set to return at full capacity after two years, with nearly 40 shows over 24 days as part of the venue’s 150th-anniversary celebrations.

My Christmas Orchestral Adventure is a festive ‘first concert’ aimed at introducing classical music to kids. This year sees its welcomed returns to the Hall, with Albert’s Orchestra poised and ready for a magical journey through classical music, as the full symphony orchestra will bring the adventure to life!

After Father Christmas loses his map on a practice run of his delivery route, the musical ensemble need the audience’s help to return it to him ahead of the big day – zipping around the world on an orchestral adventure to track him down.

Ice skate on frozen lakes, go on a sleigh ride and enjoy a white Christmas – all without leaving the Royal Albert Hall’s auditorium. The kids are going to love this.
