Become the artist with free Creative Play

Fashion a fort. Build a pyramid. Or even create your own mini Opera House to play and explore in. This summer, little makers can get creative using recycled posters. Plus there will be roving characters, set to entertain with jokes, challenges and lessons. 

Staffed  by professional artists, our free Creative Play is designed for children to express themselves, complementing the experience of seeing a show on our stages. Come, play - and tell us a joke or two! 

In the Western Foyers. 

Enjoy kid-friendly menus

All year round, treat the kids to family-friendly menus at our harbourside restaurants - and even yourself at the same time!

Visit Opera Bar for family favourites like pizza and spaghetti and  Opera Kitchen for delicious fish and chips or Asian noodle bowls. Or perhaps visit Portside  for a take away Kids Lunch Pack to enjoy wherever you please!
