Seasoned storytellers Paul Rubinstein, Olivia Armstrong and Becky Dixon deliver a series of sessions for babies and toddlers, aiming to engage and encourage interaction between parents/carers and their little ones using musical instruments, singing, movement and stories.
Developing coordination, self-confidence and awareness using songs, sounds, rhythms and rhymes, we explore the Hall’s story of diverse musical history.
Storytelling and Music on 7 and 8 March are one-off sessions as part of the Royal Albert Hall’s Love Classical festival.
Every child requires a ticket and must be accompanied by a participating adult (accompanying adults do not require a ticket).
A limited number of £1 subsidised tickets are available, please call the Box Office on 020 7589 8212 for more information and to book these.

Olivia Armstrong has been a professional storyteller for nearly ten years, performing for early years up to adult audiences and everyone in between. She loves weaving together magical narratives based on historical facts, unusual folklore, legends and songs and creating storytelling sessions that encourage children and adults to join in together.
Becky is a storyteller, cellist and music workshop leader, with a particular interest in working with young children and their families. After studying for her Masters in Contemporary Music at Goldsmiths University, she found a passion for stories and storytelling. She now leads projects in schools, delivers pre-concert talks for families and devises story and music sessions for early years groups.
For the past 13 years Paul has been working with young children and families, leading music sessions and performing as an under-5s storyteller and actor.
‘My work always has music at its core; I studied music composition at university and play the violin, guitar and piano. In my sessions I strive for enjoyment, interactivity and learning in a relaxed but alive environment – and I love to introduce families to new, engaging songs and musical experiences!’
