https://youtu.be/okkW6aaddRk Join Aurora for a swashbuckling treasure hunt adventure with Agatha the Pirate. With brand new chamber arrangements of music by Béla Bartók, audiences will meet a host of glimmering jellyfish, sail the high seas and play hide-and-seek with a wonderfully wicked parrot.
With a specially-commissioned story from writer Kate Wakeling and a host of playful opportunities to take part in the music led by animateur Jessie Maryon Davies, this 30-minute immersive performance in the round (suitable for children aged 0–4) promises a playful introduction to Bartók’s music.

ABOUT AURORA ORCHESTRA
Since its creation in 2005, Aurora Orchestra has rapidly established itself as the most significant new British chamber orchestra in a generation. Under the artistic direction of Principal Conductor Nicholas Collon, Aurora has developed flourishing London series at LSO St Luke’s and Kings Place, and also enjoys an increasingly busy touring calendar both in the UK and internationally. It has worked with a roster of world-class artists including Ian Bostridge, Gerald Finley, Rosemary Joshua, Angelika Kirchschlager, Anthony Marwood, Kate Royal, Maxim Rysanov and Robin Ticciati.
Based at Kings Place since 2009, Aurora has played a central role in the venue’s year-long ‘Unwrapped’ series devoted to Mozart (2011), Brahms (2012) and Bach (2013), and was formally installed as the Kings Place Resident Orchestra in 2013. Aurora has also developed a particular reputation for collaboration across art forms, focused around its New Moves series at LSO St Luke’s. Since its launch in 2010, New Moves has pioneered a new kind of orchestral theatre, infused with eclectic programming, innovative presentation, and inspiring artistic partnerships ranging across dance, film, visual arts and theatre. Recent highlights include pairing Brazilian capoeira with French baroque music, tango with Bernstein, klezmer with Mahler, and breakdance with Shostakovich. The success of the series was recognised by the Royal Philharmonic Society, which made Aurora the youngest-ever recipient of its Ensemble Award – the UK’s most prestigious accolade for live classical music.

5 Things to Do After the Show;
- Bring the wellies, or swimmers and a towel and head to Granary Square (2 mins away) for a splash in the fountains outside the St Martins School of Art.
- Visit the London Canal Museum, which is charming, often holds family drop in sessions and has hands-on activities for the kids, and certainly knows a few facts about Regents Canal, that they will share with you.
- Take a walk to Bloomsbury and play in Coram's Fields, home of Peter's Pans author J M Barrie, or if you're organised book a table at the best family restaurant in London Ciao Bella. You heard it here first.
- Grab a coffee and create some pedal power at the Skip Garden in the Kings Cross estate, behind the natural swimming pool.
- There's also the secret nature reserve that will be happy to see you all on the West of Kings Cross, Camley Street Nature Park. Fresh air, fresh nature, and fresh ideas is what you'll love about this place.
