Watching live music is a magical experience for young children. It is mesmerising to see musicians playing, singers singing, and dancers dancing. Live performance is inspiring and exciting, teaching children about different ways to move and learn. Furthermore, it can be used to encourage all forms of interaction, and spark your child’s imagination in ways you didn’t know were possible. Many orchestras, theatres, and town halls have music events for children. These are more relaxed performances, which allow children the chance to join in. Here are some of the most interesting music events for children in November 2017 – book your tickets now!
Nationwide Music Events
17th November 2017 – 6th September 2018, Nationwide
Suitable for: Children aged 1 – 4 years I can’t believe Teletubbies are embarking on their first ever live tour! I remember these guys from when I was little – their success has been huge. Children love their bright colours, simple language, and silly antics, and this will be a fab first show for little ones. It promises lots of well known features from the television show, as well as some new songs to captivate young kiddies.
Mess Around Ltd. – Dinosaur Detectives
Throughout November, Nationwide www.messarounduk.com
Suitable for: Children aged 6 months – 5 years
These Mess Around parties are absolutely brilliant! We attended a Mess Around rave a few months ago, and it one of the most original and fun things we have done with J. In June we enjoyed the Mess Around Despicable Me party, which was about all things yellow! This month, they have a brand new Dinosaur Detective party for you to enjoy. Kids will be able to hunt for dinosaurs in swamps, deserts, and volcanoes, and enjoy materials such as ‘jellysaurus’ and ‘spaghettiraptor’. There is lots of mess involved – but none of the tidying up. Book onto one of these events – you won’t regret it.
London Music Events
23rd November – 31st December, The Peacock Theatre, Holborn
Suitable for: Children aged 2 – 6 years
Christmas is only complete with a trip to see The Snowman! This is such a beautiful story, about the adventures of a little boy and his snowman, as they travel through a winter wonderland. The soundtrack is so special (everyone knows ‘Walking In The Air’, and this is such a magical production. The nostalgia may make you a bit weepy, but children will be enchanted.
A World Inside A Book: Gruffalos, Dragons, and Other Creatures
Until September 2018, Discover Children’s Story Centre, Stratford
Suitable for: Children aged 0 – 8 years
This is the UK’s first immersive experience showcasing the wonderful works of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. It looks to be such a magical exhibition, as a storyteller invites you to sit down and cosy up with Charlie Cook, as he settles to read his favourite book. Children will be taken on a journey through some of the best-loved characters, including the Gruffalo, Zog, and the Highway Rat! The Discover Children’s Story Centre is a fantastic place to visit with children. It beautifully captivates the innocence of childhood, and encourages them to explore the world of children’s literature. We visited their Dr Seuss exhibition a few months ago: http://musicalmum.com/discover-childrens-story-centre/
Friday 3rd November, Hogarths, Solihull
Suitable for: Adults and children of all ages.
A firework display has to up there with your top list of things to do this month, and this looks to be one of the best local ones! Hogarths has lovely grounds, and is a lovely place to go for an evening’s entertainment. Fireworks start at 7.30pm, but doors open from 5.00pm. There will be lots of food stands, live music, and activities for the kids to enjoy – including a bouncy castle, face painting, and crafts.
Enchanted Christmas Kingdom

Hatton Adventure World is a lovely place for young children! There are so many things to do, and they really make a special effort to keep everything clean, modern and exciting. This month they will be celebrating their Enchanted Christmas Kingdom, with a special Christmas grotto and a gift for every child. There will be a magic show, a puppet show, and lots of Christmas arts and crafts. There will even be some carolling!

Nativity: The Musical
20th October – 12th November, The Rep Theatre, Birmingham
Suitable for: Children aged 3 years +
Anyone who has seen The Nativity film, starring Martin Freeman, will know that it’s a brilliant Christmas movie! Mr Maddens is tasked with directing the school nativity, but he gets himself in trouble when he promises that a Hollywood producer will be coming to watch! Cue lots of hilarity as he fights to make the dream a reality. Full of great uplifting music, and lots of festive spirit!
Musical Picnic: Laura Carter
11th November, Symphony Hall, Birmingham
Suitable for: Children aged 2 year +
Laura is an amazing music educator, who I am lucky enough to know personally. She has built a fab group of folk-inspired musicians, to create a show that will be packed with singing, dancing, instruments and games. And it is completely free! One not-to-be-missed!
