You’re invited to the best seat in the house for an out-of-this-world performance of Holst’s The Planets – for free!

Walk through your very own VIP experience with the Philharmonia Orchestra’s percussion section. Discover each section in an all immersive 10 room digital experience.

Virtual reality headsets will transport you to the concert hall stage. Stand next to the musicians as they tune up and play, giving an extraordinary close-up glimpse into the sights and sounds of a symphony orchestra.

The event will include two spectacular family-friendly live concerts in Porchester Square at 2 pm and 3.30pm on the 4th August, giving as many people as possible the chance to experience the thrill of hearing live orchestra music. The concerts will be short, friendly and informal, and a specialist will guide the audience through the music, alongside critically acclaimed international conductor Holly Mathieson.

Find the Virtual Orchestra on the upper level from the 6th July – 11th August.
