Coming up on May 22nd at the museum is a concert which will examine how JS Bach helped to form our understanding and canon of western art music.
Although it is hardly an event you'd expect to participate in at an attraction dedicated to children, the museum is known for its eclectic collection of activities and events.
It was originally one of the first houses in London for abandoned children and hosted up to 27,000 youngsters before it closed.
Now it holds a number of relics and collections that serve to educate visitors about its past.
One of its current exhibitions features British ceramic artist Clare, who will present guests with a very special and unique work of art, but only on condition they carry out a specific good deed.
