Family Concert

The Victoria Hall presents Family Proms! This special event will be a fantastic way to bring the whole family together for a fun afternoon, and a great opportunity for young listeners to learn about all the instruments and different sounds of the orchestra.

Join Sheffield’s flagship amateur orchestra with conductor George Morton for a fun-filled, hour-long orchestral concert exploring some classical masterpieces and well-known proms favourites, including the Radetzky March, the March from the Dam Busters, and selections from Henry Wood’s Fantasia from British Sea Songs.

Featuring the whole orchestra, audience members will have the opportunity to march, clap, rattle, whistle, and may even have a chance to conduct the entire orchestra!

Ideal for families and children aged 0-8 (babes in arms free)

This concert is a fundraising concert to support the upgrade of the seating at the Victoria Hall, this will enable the space to be used for multiple purposes by the community organisations and charities. All proceeds from the concert will be donated towards this cause.

Refreshments will be available.
