Glasgow UNESCO City of Music celebrates another successful Family Fun Day.

With a theme of an “underwater party”, this year’s Glasgow UNESCO City of Music’s Family Fun Day was a huge success.

On the 22nd September 2012, Glasgow UNESCO City of Music and Glasgow Music teamed up to create a day of underwater music and fun for all the family at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Attendance topped 1,200 with children of all ages coming to enjoy our own projects alongside those of partners including Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Children’s Classic Concerts, Dr Octopus & his Wheels of Steel, Black Star Steel Band and Gamelan Naga Mas to name but a few as well as non-musical content including crafts, face-painting and pirates which added to the festive atmosphere.

Audience feedback via an online questionnaire rated the range of activities, quality of activities and musical content as ‘Excellent” and comments in response to ‘What did you most enjoy” included:

‘The violinist giving my three yr old and five yr old the opportunity to play violin. something they wouldn't normally get chance to try!'

‘We loved the SCO & being able to play instruments. The under the sea installation was also brilliant and we lost our children there for a long time. Quote from my 6 yr old son 'I really didn't want to go to this at all, but once we went I really didn't want to leave'

‘We brought our 4 year old and 1 year old girls and had the best time. There really was something for everyone (even the adults!). We had a go at everything from singing and dancing to arts and crafts and playing violin. This is easily one of the best events we've come along to as a family and I can't wait for the next one! Thanks!’
