OTHER ONLINE ACTIVITIES

CAWC aims to fill your diaries with interesting and engaging activity content you can join at any time from home. The traditionally quiet summer period will now be filled with fun packed virtual tours accessed through a device in the comfort of your own home or garden.  

Here are some links we have checked out that we'd like to offer up as ideas but please feel free to message us with your contributions for future months too.

Some of these you would pay good money for, so get online whilst these are still available for everyone to share the joy!

  • Wimbledon Recreated: The All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC), which stages The Championships, Wimbledon, today launched ‘Wimbledon Recreated’, a campaign to celebrate the 2020 Fortnight in the absence of this year’s Championships. Recreate Wimbledon in your own way and take part in activities over the coming weeks. Visit www.wimbledon.com/index.html for more detail
  • Take advantage of the National Theatre links online. You can watch ‘Les Blancs' from 2nd July to 9th July, then ‘The Deep Blue Sea’ from 9th July to 16th July and ‘Amadeus’ from 17th July through 23rd July. There is a back catalogue on the link too for you to dig into. New content appears to be loaded frequently. nationaltheatre.org.uk/nt-at-home
  • Do you enjoy being spooked? If so visit feverup.com. They have daily virtual tours with a professional guide that will shoe you around places you can’t ordinarily visit. There is an age restriction of 12 years so I guess it could be quite spine-chilling. This activity does require a £5 booking fee online and is daily at 8.30pm for 1hour.
  • The Royal Albert Hall are streaming their content daily too. Follow the link to Royalalberthall.com and you will find their free content. They also have a link for donations and as there have been suggestions that this great venue may be closing its doors permanently in the near future it could be nice to give something back too.
  • Culture in Quarantine: Shakespeare: Enjoy a series of Shakespeare’s best plays from the Royal Shakespeare Company, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and the Royal Opera House...from the comfort of your own home. Currently available free via BBC at www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/p089zds8/culture-in-quarantine-shakespeare
  • The Royal Opera house has lots of fun cultural offerings through their #OurHousetoYourHouse series and if you follow this link you can select your preferred viewing method and route.
    Król Roger 17 June – 13 July 2020, Opera and Music
    Live from Covent Garden, Live streamed special performances – until 10 July 2020
    Woolf Works, Ballet and dance – 26 June – 9 July 2020
    La bohème – 3 July – 16 July 2020

  • Royal Historic Palaces have a whole selection of different podcasts you can listen to on the move. They cover the Tower of London, Hampton Court, Banqueting House, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle.  Get your ear buds out and get listening.

  • All art galleries are closed as we know but it doesn’t stop us tapping into their gorgeous content online. Here's just a taste of the Saatchi collection on Instagram for the tempted. Once in, you can look through the related content and fill your thoughts with which pieces may adorn your walls once lockdown ceases!
    instagram.com/saatchi_gallery 
  • Check out this link for the London Symphony Orchestra for full length concerts and new daily content. The Barbican centre may currently be closed but we still want to hear their musical offerings. Short coffee sessions are released every Monday morning as well!

  • If you are short on time but want a fix of Opera then these 20 minute snippets may just float your boat. This also offers a gentle introduction to opera for those new to the genre.  New content is promised weekly so keep logging in.
    operaupclose.com/at-home
  • This little known secret showcasing the British Museum collections is an absolute goldmine of information you can tap into at any time. If you are lucky enough to have virtual reality headsets then even better. You can literally navigate your way around miles of the museum and manage to avoid the gift shop on the way out!

Have a wonderful time exploring!
