At a time of year when Brits will be looking to head to Australia to enjoy the warmer weather there, Sydney Opera House will host a range of family friendly events during the Oz school holiday period.

This kid-friendly season runs September 20th to October 5th at the world famous iconic building - with kids' shows, tours for young people and play activities among the features on offer.

"This Spring is all about adventure at the Opera House," commented Bridgette Van Leuven, head of children, families and education.

"There is something for everyone with a colourful tale of lost toys for young audiences in Fluff; a mischievous story of friendship for primary-aged children in The 26-Storey Treehouse; the youthful joy of circus entertaining all the family in Cirkopolis and free Creative Play using LEGO to explore sculpture."

Each day of the school break, in the Opera House's Western Foyer, kids are going to be given the chance to create a moving artwork using Lego bricks and a pair of artists wearing brick-compatible suits. These Lego-clad people will take part in regular dances before being being re-buit in the bricks.

Meanwhile, the holidays will be home to Junior Tours where children can find out about things like props and lighting behind-the-scenes. These are happening each day.

And various Opera House eateries are offering Junior Lunches at this time of the year, too.

In terms of some of the upcoming shows at the Opera House, the circus-themed Cirkopolis will take to the Concert Hall stage from October 2nd to October 6th this year, making its debut in Australia.

The 26-Storey Treehouse will be performed from September 20th to October 5th and includes 13 tales about things like robots that serve ice cream and pirates.

Meanwhile Fluff, at the Studio between September 26th and 30th, is about a family who collect lost toys.ADNFCR-408-ID-801743687-ADNFCR
