Concerts & Performances Kids Activities Melbourne
The great thing about Melbourne's outdoor festivals is that everyone can enjoy them. At outdoor concerts, grown ups can enjoy being outdoors on a lovely day or evening, relaxing, even if the music is for kids. And, generally, kids will put up with an adult performance much better if they can run around, dance, play and picnic while you enjoy a little grown up entertainment for once. Of course it's fun to visit the indoorsy entertainment at Venues too!
Family shows are just as fun as the concerts you may remember from your pre-parenting days but the music isn't as loud, the settings are sometimes more intimate with the children nestled around the performer and there is nothing cuter than watching the littlies get up and groove to the music.
The world’s most famous ballet comes to life on stage in a brand-new production of The Nutcracker for children aged 3 and up. Join Clara at a marvellous Christmas party that turns into a magical adventure. Packed with wonder and delight, this is the perfect ballet experience for boys and girls.
