More things to do at home

I thought I would share a few more of my favourite things, which will hopefully help to keep you occupied in the next couple of weeks.



Art


Art is where the Home is

Download your free activity packs for ideas on how to get creative in the home. With contributions by well known British artists such as Antony Gormley and Greyson Perry; the first two can be downloaded now and you can sign up to hear when the next ones are available. Download them here.


Work Show Grow

Work Show Grow are running a different event every Monday to Friday on their Instagram page. Whilst the How to's and Q+A's might be of more interest to budding and established artists, I am sure that the creative exercises including drawing/painting and sewing will be fun for all and there are artist talks and exercises too! Have a look at the next two weeks here.



Theatre and film


The National Theatre

The National Theatre are showing one free screening a week through Youtube. You can watch Treasure Island for the next few days and then they will be showing Twelfth Night. Visit their website to find out more.



Music


Berlin Philharmonic

The Philharmonic are giving you thirty days of free access to their digital concert hall. Register on their website to listen to music from Beethoven to Mozart.


One World: Together at Home

This concert raised a massive $127 million for coronavirus relief and features over 70 musicians from around the world. Listen to Lady Gaga, Elton John, The Rolling Stones and many, many more. Watch it on Youtube here.



Animals


Monterey Bay Aquarium

The aquarium has ten different live cams so that you can watch all sorts of animal life, including birds and otters as well as many different underwater creatures. Have a look here.


National Marine Sanctuaries

Go on a virtual tour with sea lions or explore many 360 degree images of underwater life. If you have a virtual reality headset or goggles you can even use those for a more life-like experience. Explore the website here.


Wild Earth Live

Twice a day they are going for a live safari, so that you can see all sorts of animals and ask any questions live on facebook. Go on a journey with them here.



Virtual tours


The Vatican Museum

Probably the most popular tour here will be of The Sistine Chapel with its stunning frescoes by Michaelangelo, but there are five more to look through, with a large amount of intricate sculpture. Check them out here.
