Keep your youngest music lovers captivated with OAE TOTS, a concert introducing children aged 2 to 5 to the magic of classical music.

A friendly old apple tree, and the source of a tasty, juicy snack! But a month later, the tree is bare. Icicles suddenly appear, followed by leaves, then blossom, and then birds and bees. But will there ever be any more juicy apples to eat?  Learn about the changing seasons through a mixture of Baroque and folk music, and meet the magnificent instruments of the orchestra.

Venue details

Saffron Hall is an award-winning 740-seat performance space built in the grounds of Saffron Walden County High School.

  • I took my two grandchildren, 5 year old Ella and 2 year old Leo, along to this concert yesterday. They were spellbound. It was a most relaxed event so well led by all of you, with lots of interest in singing, copying the actions and just being involved!
    Just the right length of time too! The colouring sheet was a brilliant idea as there was something to occupy lively minds immediately on arrival.
    They so loved being able to see the instruments afterwards as all members of the orchestra were so good at interacting with the little ones, demonstrating the variety of sounds as well as letting them touch and feel the strings, the vibrations inside the horn, to mention just one or two!
    Thank you so much. We shall await another visit to Saffron Hall from you all with eagerness!
    Best wishes
