Just because we need to stay home at the moment, doesn’t mean we have to spend every day staring at the four walls around us. In fact, now more than ever before, we have the opportunity to explore theatres, museums and events that we would never have been able to in person!
Make the most of this unexpected down time and lose yourself in another world, without ever needing to leave the comfort of your home.
National Theatre Live
Every Thursday evening at 7pm you can watch one of the National Theatre shows completely free of charge on their YouTube channel. The shows are available online for 7 days following their premiere, and they are a must watch. Previously aired shows have included Jane Eyre and Treasure Island!

The Shows Must Go On!
Every Friday at 7pm you can enjoy one of Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s musicals on the Youtube channel ‘The Shows Must Go On!’ Friday’s show was Love Never Dies, and the previous week we enjoyed the 25th Anniversary of Phantom of the Opera – utterly spectacular! These shows are only available for 48 hours after they have premiered though, so make sure you aren’t late!
Subscribe to the YouTube channel to see snippets of the upcoming show and be ready to watch when it’s streamed!
