Event description

Description

Join our family programme and special events for children at Leighton House Museum, a unique and opulent Victorian palace of art.

Saturday 23 March - SONG WRITING WITH SALOMÉ QUARTET, OUR RCM MUSICIANS IN RESIDENCE

In this fun, practical workshop families of any musical experience will hear our musicians play live, learn about what a quartet is and the roles of each instrument. Children will also experiment with writing lyrics together and create the very special gift of a song for someone special with the expert and charismatic guidance of the Salome Quartet. Mothering Sunday falls on the 31 March, so that special person could be Mum!

Saturday 6 April: 'KARAGOZ AND HACIVAT, A TRADITIONAL TURKISH SHADOW PLAY

By popular demand and after a sold-out performance in February, Karagöz and Hacivat returns to Leighton House Museum.

Families will enjoy a mesmerising performance lit against the traditional white curtain, or ‘mirror’, as common sense Karagöz and smooth-talking Hacivat attempt to solve everyday problems, meeting a host of other characters along the way.

Karagöz and Hacivat is an educational project launched by Yunus Emre Enstitüsü – London, with the aim of promoting Turkish culture and establishing a bridge between students coming from different cultural backgrounds.

Saturday 27 April - STORY TELLING WITH VANESSA WOOLF

Celebrate the Spring season with an afternoon of magical and enchanting storytelling with Vanessa Woolf. Featuring Echo and Narcissus, at 2pm and Why Dogs Chase Cats, a tale from the Orient at 3pm: you choose to attend just one or stay for both! With music, props and lots of joining in.
