Things to do at home during lockdowns: the best online and virtual events happening today


We are now weeks away, and the UK, like the rest of the world, is still struggling with coronavirus blocking.

Things are difficult there, but there is a silver lining – UK cultural production has moved online, and millions of us have turned to theater shows, live comedy and art exhibitions from our sofas.
