This is an opportunity to immerse yourself and baby in the meditative and mesmerising chimes of the gamelan while meeting other new parents.
No previous musical experience is required, just a willingness to take off your shoes, sit on the floor with baby in lap and have fun.
In 1987, Southbank Centre was privileged to receive a beautiful Javanese percussion orchestra called gamelan. This was a remarkable gift from the Government of the Republic of Indonesia to the people of the UK as a gesture of friendship.
As is the case with many important gamelan ensembles, ours was named 'Kyai Lebdha Jiwa' or 'The Venerable Spirit of Perfection'.
For babies aged 0 – 6 months (non-crawling babies).
£5 for baby and accompanying adult.
For visitors with prams, buggies and wheelchairs, or requiring step-free access to Gamelan Room, please go to the Welcome Desk, Level 2, Royal Festival Hall, where our Visitor Experience Team are happy to assist you.
