Journey through the wilderness and discover creatures small, cute, cuddly, big, scary, odd and extinct when Family Proms comes to the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre this weekend.

Family Proms: Animals and other strange creatures will see David Pye conduct the Philharmonic South West orchestra on a tour of old and new music inspired by creature themes.

More than 55 musicians will take the audience on a family-friendly adventure on Saturday, with everything from blockbuster film themes through to baroque on the agenda.

While the concert kicks off at 3pm, attendees are encouraged to arrive an hour before to take part in additional fun.

“Before the concert and during the interval, the foyer will be invaded by animals and other strange creatures,” BREC engagement producer Michele Laine said.

“We invite children to come dressed as their favourite animal to join a grand BREC expedition before the show, led by intrepid Roving Ranger Isaac Salter of Head Over Heels Acrobatics fame.”

Children dressed as their favourite animal can take part in a fashion show during the interval.
