Kensington Palace has always been a wonderful place to put on a show! Some of the greatest minds like Isaac Newton and brilliant composers such as Mozart would perform here in the 17th and 18th centuries to show off their discoveries or play their masterpieces in the hope of receiving patronage. Now it’s your turn to take a seat and be the audience as the Orangery at the Palace hosts two wonderful outdoor shows especially for families. The English National Ballet will perform a child-friendly version of Sleeping Beauty from their My First Ballet series and The Science Museum will perform some of their most popular (and often hilarious) awe-inspiring shows to intrigue and enlighten you. Refreshments will be available but you can also bring your own picnic to enjoy on the lawns. Umbrellas and folding chairs aren’t allowed but cushions can be hired onsite for £1.50 each or 4 for £5.
