Community arts officer June Mitchell said : “Be prepared to sing along, get moving and help the orchestra perform stellar pieces of orchestral repertoire that are out of this world.”

On the previous day Saturday 20 July, from 2pm to 4pm, join musicians from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and East Riding Music Hub for a fun, family workshop devising brand new pieces of music on the theme of Outer Space.

In preparation for the family concert at Bridlington Spa the following day, this short workshop will give participants the chance to try out instruments, meet members of the orchestra and create their very own pieces of music.

No prior musical experience is required and instruments will be provided, but participants already playing an instrument are invited to bring these along.

Recommended for ages eight years and over and their families.

Workshop tickets cost £3.
