The kids and I had one of our coolest field trips ever this week. It was in the Royal Albert Hall here in London which I have been wanting to go to since the day we moved here and the taxi cab driver told me all about it.
The London Philharmonic played famous classical pieces accompanied by a laser light show. Seth actually got out of his chair to hug me and say thank you during the show, he liked it so much. Even my teenager thought it was great. She is no longer easily impressed.
I took a few pictures while the orchestra were setting up and the lights were still on. We felt just like we were in a fancy old Victorian opera house, because we were! Red curtains behind us and all.
There was a special guest performer for one song; a Spanish guitar player. The kids were so impressed, he was amazing. It was a beautiful experience. On the final song, there were fireworks inside the building and then some people dressed as soldiers appeared in the columns at the very top and they fired pretend muskets and a huge old looking cannon went off. It was very patriotic.
The hall is so large we had to go across the street into Kensington Garden just to fit some it into a picture with the kids. And once you are there, well, you may as well walk around and thoroughly enjoy the rest of your day…….
