Our relaxed performances for children are designed to welcome families with young children to enjoy hearing live music in a more relaxed performance environment. There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement, and attention is given to dynamics and the duration of music performed.
In these concerts, the Carole Nash Hall will be set up in a more informal way. Audience members will be able to make noise, move around the space, and eat or drink during the performance.
