Celebrate the brilliant ladies who have been instrumental in the work of The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet this Sunday at the Royal Opera House. Tickets cost £10 for adults and £8 for children and can be bought in advance or on the day. The event is suitable for children aged 3–10. We love the sound of the Draft Works performances from dancers of The Royal Ballet, the Dance Mama workshop which highlights the dancing mums at The Royal Ballet and the performance of a re-imagined Sleeping Beauty.
Billy is poorly. He’s stuck in a hospital room and it’s miserable! But all that’s about to change. When a cool hospital porter comes swinging by with his trolley of books, he leaves a tattered old tome on Billy’s bed. Little does Billy know that the book is his ticket to a whole world of adventure! Pulled into the pages, he’ll be transported far from his bed into strange new worlds and make the journey of a lifetime. Catch the show this Saturday, 16th March. Tickets: £8. Ages 5–11.
Experience a weekend of family-friendly comedy, laughs and jokes as the Museum of London Docklands celebrate historic East End entertainments.
