OTHER ONLINE ACTIVITIES

Every month the CAWC aims to fill your diaries with interesting and engaging activity content you can join at any time from home. August is often the quietest month in our annual calendar but we’ve had a look around and found some more interesting activities for you to explore. In addition to the easing of lockdown and the ability for more movement outdoors too this ordinarily quiet summer period will now be filled with fun packed activities and virtual tours accessed on your device in the comfort of your own home or garden.

Here are some new and updated links we have reviewed that we'd like to suggest as ideas but, as always, please feel free to message us with your contributions for future months too.

Enjoy the diversity that this selection of activities offers.

  • Through from the end of July and most of August we have a reinvention of the famous Proms. You may need to sign in and set up an account with the BBC to make this work but it will be well worth the effort - BBC 3 2020 Season Guide.
  • Always wanted to know how to paint like a genius, or like me, to be able to do more than sea and sky? Well, Paint Republic is a new discovery of ours that allows remote paint classes that are live online. Make sure you register for the website and you will get access to all the ‘FREE’ live classes, link here.
  • Fancy yourself as a cook or baker? There are online courses for cooking and baking through the Shaw Academy. They are currently running their courses for free depending on what you want to do. Click here and take a look at the options.
  • You all need to look at this site too for the best virtual tours of London in the sun (woo hoo!!). You can literally choose most attractions and not queue or be disappointed by a rainy day!
  • This month the website feverup.com is offering even more than last. They have daily virtual tours, links to outdoor events and the same sort of experiences from home we showcased last month. However, they are now adding candlelight concerts, food and drink activities, tours and games with activities, nightlife with concerts and wellness and sport! Many of these do require booking and a small payment but they sound amazing and it seems the world is almost as exciting as it was before but better as we don’t need to get the train!
  • The Royal Albert Hall are still streaming their content too. Follow this link and you will find their offerings. They still have a link for donations which is worth considering if we are ever to dream of crossing their threshold again. They do regular coffee mornings and have other shows streamed live from artists homes.
  • Culture in Quarantine: Shakespeare: The show must go on…and does! There are shows from earlier in lockdown and even more now for those desperate to immerse themselves in Shakespeare. Enjoy even more from the variety of 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, click here to visit.
  • 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.
    They also have added drive through options for shows streamed from other venues where you can book, take your car and enjoy the evening. One example is Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, which is screened in the open air at Allianz Park, London. Doors open 5:30pm BST. Opera begins at 6.00pm on the 16th August. This is in partnership with The Luna Drive-in Cinema. This is one of four Royal Opera House productions presented over summer 2020 at iconic drive-in locations around the UK, including Swan Lake and the operas La traviata and La bohème. Get booking!!!
  • Royal Historic Palaces normally requires an annual membership to allow most people to venture forth. However, right now you can still go online and find out more than most about the history of these amazing buildings. The selection of podcasts has now been added to and updated for August so it’s worth another visit to review their selection of talks. 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 - link here.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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! Check it out here.

Have a wonderful time exploring!
