On 26 October 2016, nearly 8000 adventurers young and old filled our auditorium on a quest to help conductor Tim find his lost baton, at the Royal Albert Hall’s first performances of My Great Orchestral Adventure!

Via 11 classical masterpieces, the audiences travelled through magical faraway lands and mythical places, facing trolls and mermaids, not forgetting a ferocious bear!

Tim and our chief adventurer Tom searched far and wide, from Switzerland to outer space! It’s safe to say had a bit of trouble finding their missing baton… but with your help we got there in the end.
