Free things to do at home during Corona Virus lockdown

Free things to do at home during Corona Virus lockdown

by Jayne Leighton Herd April 16, 2020

Enjoy free shows, culture, books and classes online at home

I have been amazed by the number of fantastic and fun activities that are being made available for free during this worrying time of COVID-19 and lockdown.

Of course it would be lovely to do everything. But I am trying to stay disciplined and keep working on my art business, painting and designing, so I've had to pick and choose what extra things I do with my time.

For me continuing to sing is a must. How about you?

If you're looking for new or additional things to enjoy, and want a fix of arts and culture then some of these may be ideal for you.
