If you know your Chim-Chim-Cheree from your Do-Re-Mi then Baby Broadway is for you! An interactive family concert of songs from hit musicals and films, performed live by West End singers.
We don’t dress up, dance or use many props but there are plenty of interactive elements like bubbles, puppetry and actions. Bring babies, toddlers, children, grandparents and join in as little or as much as you like!
If you like your nursery rhymes on the soulful side, check out Baby Gospel. Our uplifting family concerts of soul, Motown and gospel music feature the astonishing vocal talents of London’s CK Gospel Choir.
At all our concerts, seating is unallocated and you’re free to move around and respond to your child’s needs throughout the performance.
Performances last around 45 minutes and are open to all ages, but we think ages 0 – 8 and their grown-ups enjoy them the most. Don’t miss our Christmas specials in December!
IN THE PRESS
Watch Anna talking about Baby Broadway on ‘Talking Business’ on BBC World News Channel…
“Are you tired of ‘Twinkle Twinkle’? Bored of belting out ‘Baa Baa Black Sheep’ to oblige your music-loving child? Baby Broadway has the salvation you seek….”
“Here you can sit with your little one and immerse yourself in the sounds of the musicals, and while audience participation is encouraged, it’s by no means a necessity…”
“When a show opens with its housekeeping info delivered in joyful song, you know you’re in for a treat!”
“[Baby Gospel] was the most uplifting and relaxing activity we have ever done together as a family…As we left, we had a kick in our step, music in our ears and the biggest smiles on our faces.”
“Baby Broadway has proven to be suitable (and immensely enjoyable!) for all ages; from babies, toddlers to pre-schoolers and, of course, their grateful parents seeking an indulgent break. “
WHAT PARENTS SAY…
“Thank you for the best baby activity so far!”
“Put a real spring in my step! Can’t wait for the next one”
“Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Wonderful show!”
“Singing & bobbing along to the show tunes really lifted the ‘head grog’ of sleep deprivation!”
“So much fun and a fab way to spend a Sunday morning”
“we sang, we clapped, we danced…this was an awesome show for wee ones”
