We’ve some great shows for families and children of all ages at The Met. Prefer to be on the stage rather than watching it? The Met’s Young Company meet every Wednesday, or entertain your very young musicians with fun classes for ages 3-36 months every Tuesday morning!

Do you have a child too small or young to sit in their own seat for a show? Just buy a babe-in-arms ticket for £1 and sit them on your knee (call the ticket office on 0161 761 2216 for babes-in-arms tickets).
