Izzy Gizmo is the enchanting story of an intrepid young inventor who puts her talents to work to rescue a crow that can’t fly.

Based on Pip Jones’s best-selling children’s book with illustrations by Sara Ogilvie, this interactive family concert brings Izzy’s mechanical marvels and infectious creative spirit to life, with original music by Paul Rissman performed by musicians from Britten Sinfonia, featuring pots, pans, whistles and household items, as well as orchestral instruments.

A great introduction to live music for children aged 3-7, full of songs, actions and opportunities to join in.

We’re delighted to announce Angie Newman as our BSL interpreter, recently seen live on TV working with Horrible Histories at the BBC Proms.


Come early to take part in arts and crafts activities, try out instruments, and find out more about learning to play.

These pre-performance sessions will take place at 10.45 – 11.30am before the morning performance and 1.15 – 2pm for the afternoon performance.

more about Britten Sinfonia

Britten Sinfonia is a different kind of orchestra. It is defined not by the traditional figurehead of a principal conductor, but by the dynamic and democratic meeting of its outstanding individual players and the broad range of their collaborators.

Britten Sinfonia has been pushing the boundaries of what a chamber orchestra can do for more than 30 years. It is rooted in the East of England, where it is the only professional orchestra working throughout the region, while it also has a national and international reputation as one of the finest ensembles playing today.

It is renowned for its adventurous programming and stunningly high-quality performances, and equally for its record of commissioning new music, nurturing new composing talent, and inspiring schoolchildren, hospital patients and communities across the East of England.
