Family Concerts

Liverpool Philharmonic Family Concerts are a great way for children and adults to come together to experience a full symphony orchestra performing music live...Fidgeting is allowed, so come along and give it a try! Concerts last approximately one hour.

Family concerts also feature our Instrument Petting Zoo which takes place 30 minutes before each concert. Children are invited to try a variety of orchestral instruments.

We're proud to announce that Liverpool Philharmonic Family Concerts were awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in the 2017 Fantastic for Families awards.

There's a full list of all the current family events at the bottom of this page.


Workshops for Children

The whole family can get involved in our music workshops. A variety of workshops are available for children aged 0-5 years, with parents and grandparents encouraged to join in.

Led by musicians from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the workshops involve singing, creative music making and the opportunity to have a go on a range of musical instruments.
