Babes in Arms Policy
Sydney Opera House’s Kids at the House program is designed to encourage access for younger audiences to the performing arts. For the Babies Proms series only, children 12 months of age or older must have a ticket. Children under twelve months of age (that is, babies who remain in their carers arms during a performance and do not participate in the event) are admitted free of charge to Babies Proms performances. For all other Kids at the House performances, children 2 years of age or older must have a ticket (even if the accompanying adult intends to sit the child on his/her knees.)
Toilets, change facilities and pram access is available. The public lift to the foyers can be accessed from the corridor near the escalators on the Lower Level and also in the Western Foyer via the corridor on the Ground Level (at the top of the escalators).
