Cushion Concerts

Experience the joy of live music with your preschooler at our monthly cushion concerts.

Cushion concerts are a series of live performances for children by local as well as internationally recognised musicians. They are affordable and presented in a relaxed and friendly environment.

We choose music that is stimulating for young listeners, make sure each concert is unlike the last and keep the performance under 40 minutes.

Children bring a cushion (or borrow one of ours), as well as a teddy and a snack. If they need to move around to get a better view, want to dance or stretch out on the floor, that's fine. If a child has a question or want to talk about the performance – that's great.


Tickets are $5 per child (with accompanying adult free).  Additional children or adults $5 and children under 12 months are free.

Tickets may be purchased from the Box Office or online.

Coming to a Cushion Concert book

Coming to a Cushion Concert is a book written and illustrated by Liz Duthie and designed by Jacqui Lynch.

It's just $5 at the Box office and a great way to relive your concert experience.
