The much loved story comes to life in our Babies Proms Christmas special. 


Suitable for children 2 – 5

Since its publication in 1941, The Little Drummer Boy has been counted among the most popular Christmas carols. The story of a young boy who offers baby Jesus the gift of music reminds us all that simple gifts are often the best!

This unique concert offers an introduction to rhythm and percussion, exploring a number of classic Christmas carols. Children will learn about different percussion instruments, and even have an opportunity to play along with the Babies Proms ensemble on a drum of their own! 

Gather your family to sing along and share in the joy of music this Christmas.
