Some of the greatest minds and most brilliant performers came to Kensington Palace in the 17th and 18th centuries to show off their work and seek the patronage of princesses living there. From the amazing discoveries of Isaac Newton to the latest hits from Mozart, Kensington was the place to be, and it is again!

Come to this exclusive family event at Kensington Palace and watch English National Ballet perform a version of Sleeping Beauty from their My First Ballet series. The Science Museum will perform a “greatest hits” of their awe-inspiring shows and there will be plenty of laughs thrown in along the way.

 

Further Information

The show runs for an hour and 15 minutes and is an outdoor performance on the Orangery Lawns so please dress appropriately for the weather on the day.

Please note that umbrellas and folding chairs are prohibited as they may restrict the view for other guests. There will be cushions to hire onsite for the duration of the performance. These are priced at £1.50 per cushion or 4 for £5. Please bring cash as cards will not be accepted.

Refreshments will be available in the performance area or feel free to bring your own picnic with you if you wish.

 

Weather

Please note we will go ahead with the performance in the event of bad weather, unless there are exceptional circumstances (where the safety of the audience is at risk of being compromised). We will make cancellation announcements in the morning both through email to those who provided an address and via this webpage.
