We've created a handy list of events to help you fight off lockdown boredom. From pub quizzes to story time for the little ones, there's something for everyone to enjoy.
Following the announcement of lockdown, one of Nottingham's most popular burger restaurants decided to trial their weekly pub quiz online. Fast forward nine weeks (at the time of writing) and it's safe to say the quiz is a roaring success! Annie's run their quiz every Wednesday evening via their thriving Facebook page and offer contestants two ways of playing. Essentially, you can play along live or if you can't make it then you can play along a little later. As long as you submit you're score before 11am then you'll be in with a chance of winning. Winners will enjoy a free meal once lockdown is lifted! Click HERE to visit the event page.
Following the success of Light Hustle Festival, Hockley Hustle and Circle of Light are back with a new online event and this time it's so big that they need two days to fit everything in. Nottstopping festival will take place over the bank holiday weekend on 23rd and 24th May 2020. The festival will feature a multi stream programme of 150 hours of music, film, dance, comedy, theatre, poetry, food, art and design, fashion and family focused activities. Made by Notts and for Notts, the online event will be raising funds to provide treats, gifts and experiences for the county’s hardworking frontline key workers. You can take a peek at the stacked line-up HERE.
Left Lion's Sofa Sessions are a brilliant celebration of Nottingham's creative scene and prove to be really good entertainment. The sessions are streamed nightly via Left Lion's Facebook page and you can either watch them at the time or come back to them later. The sessions play host to a variety of talent and styles including singer-song writers, comedians, poets and everything in-between. Best of all, Left Lion have impressively vowed to stream a new session every evening until the end of lockdown so it doesn't look like we'll be running out of content to watch any time soon! You can watch the sessions HERE.
As the title suggests, this one is perfect for those of us with little ones running around at home. Promising singing, laughing and fun stories; this weekly event is sure to provide some much needed entertainment for children during in lockdown. You can watch the event every Wednesday at 11am via the link above. Alternatively just search for Nottingham City Council Library and Information Services on Facebook.
Despite mainly being organised via Facebook, Rescue Rooms opt to use Twitch as their streaming platform of choice. This is something you'll need to sign up to but it's free, only takes a couple of minutes and is definitely worth it to take part. As well as a variety of head scratching questions to tackle, you can also request your favourite songs which the quiz master may then play during the stream. If you've ever been to a quiz at Rescue Rooms then you'll most likely already know what to expect and if you haven't then you're in for a great time! The quiz is hosted weekly every Thursday at 7pm.
