FUNharmonics - Noses

A concert and activities for all the family

12:00 PM, ​ Royal Festival Hall, London

With Roald Dahl’s The Ant-Eater, a musical feast by Benjamin Wallfisch.

Stuart Stratford conductor

London Philharmonic Orchestra

In the second of our three concerts inspired by Roald Dahl's Dirty Beasts poems, we meet our dreadfully spoiled hero, Roy, and his very hungry pet ant-eater in another special musical feast by composer Benjamin Wallfisch inspired by Dahl's tale of The Ant-Eater. We then go on to meet the whole zoo in a fantastic selection of pieces celebrating our animal friends, from Rossini's The Thieving Magpie to John Williams's Hedwig's Theme from Harry Potter.

Presented by CBeebies’ Chris Jarvis and featuring 80 of the country’s finest musicians, FUNharmonics concerts are the perfect introduction to the extraordinary drama and colour of orchestral music.

Come and join the party!
Throughout the day there are free musical events around the building offering a fun and interactive way-in to the concert.

10.00am–2.00pm: Have a go at an orchestral instrument of your choice under expert instruction; join our music-making workshops on The Clore Ballroom, and explore Southbank Centre with our free activity sheet.

1.15pm: The music continues in The Clore Ballroom – a guest ensemble of young musicians entertain with a selection of great tunes.
