Family Sundays are a new regular event for families to come and explore the Royal Opera House, its artists and the world of opera and ballet. Each Family Sunday will be packed full of different creative and practical activities for all the family, as well as space to relax and enjoy live music in an informal setting. Each event is different, but example activities running throughout the day include:

- The opportunity to join in fun, interactive singing or dance activities.
- Informal performances from Royal Ballet dancers, Jette Parker Young Artists and Musicians
- Live make-up or stage combat demonstrations.
- Costume dressing up area.
- Design activities led by a professional set designer.

These activities run throughout the day from 12 – 4pm. Last entry to the event is at 3pm. A number of tickets are available to buy on the day.
Tickets are £5 for adults and £3 for children.
