There’s a wealth of great entertainment for children and families at The Met this autumn…

We’ve got music and theatre, science and storytelling, live actors and amazing puppetry; great shows that your kids won’t want to miss.

Plus Christmas brings Dick Whittington, The Met’s first every family pantomime. Oh yes it does!

Remember our own restaurant Automatic is a great place to grab food before or after the show with the whole family. Our Kids’ Menu includes a choice of fruit and veg snacks, drink, and mains guaranteed to meet with young people’s approval.

But that's not all...

This is just one part of The Met’s programme of family events. Visit our families page to see our full line-up.
