Baby Broadway

BB55What is it: Popular showtunes sung by West End performers in beautiful venues
 

Parents will like: singing along in a fun and relaxed atmosphere

Children will like: the irresistible urge to dance in the aisles

Best for: mixed age groups of children. Bringing granny along.

When a show opens with its housekeeping info delivered in joyful song, you know you’re in for a treat! Baby Broadway promises ‘fun-filled concerts of show tunes – for parents, babies and children’ and delivers in spades. There is a lively mix of tunes from a variety of musicals, appealing to adults and children alike. Each is performed by a small group of singers, accompanied by a piano.

highbury-febOlder children will enjoy hearing their favourite Disney tunes, which are carefully interspersed amongst songs from past eras that children would be less familiar with.

Refreshments are on sale and there was something rather nice about having tea and cake in the pews, whilst children sang and danced around us. An enjoyable morning for the whole family.

Price: £10 per adult, children free. Selected venues across London occurring roughly monthly.

We attended Baby Broadway at St Bartholomews Church, Sydenham with a 1 year old and 4 year old.
