The magic of Masquerade

Families are being invited to the Royal Albert Hall this February to experience the magic of masquerades as part of the institution's annual half term exhibition.

This focus this year is on extravagant balls, galas and banquets of the past 142 years, and while there is certainly an educational element, the creators have worked hard to ensure that there is plenty of interactivity throughout the event.

Kids will have the chance to participate in a hands-on arts and crafts session dedicated to creating masks appropriate for a splendid Royal Albert Hall celebration, while interactive workshops aimed at those aged five to 11 will help them understand what these incredible occasions were for.

Round off the event by staying at The Milestone Hotel, where you can enjoy the resplendent surroundings and a wealth of child-friendly extras such as a behind-the-scenes tour for the young ones as part of the We Are Family package.
