It’s Easter weekend! We might all be staying in for a while, but that doesn’t mean we can’t go out on dates! Whether you’re with a partner, friends or home alone – here are our picks for things to do this weekend for the perfect ‘date night’.
Go to the Theatre
London’s National Theatre is making their National Theatre Live programme available for free, to be watched from the safety of our own sofas. They’re adding a different show every Thursday, but they’ll all be available on YouTube for the foreseeable future. For now, you can either watch last week’s show ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ or this week’s offering ‘Jane Eyre’.
Visit the National Theatre on YouTube.
A little closer to home, the Theatre Royal in St Helens is live streaming performances of their Easter pantomime Rapunzel, starting this Sunday. Each cast member has recorded their own section of the pantomime at home and, through careful editing, the story is brought together to create a unique online pantomime that the whole family will enjoy.
See a Concert
Culture Liverpool has teamed up with Bido Lito! for Friday Night Live, a series of bedroom gigs from some of the city’s best artists – curated by Bido Lito! and uploaded for free. All you need is a drink in a plastic glass and you’re good to go!
See the shows at the Culture Liverpool Facebook page.
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic are also live-streaming concerts, twice a week for the duration of their closure. You can see their full complement of videos over on their Facebook page.
Go to the Cinema
Colectif Jeune Cinema, an experimental French film company, have made lots of their films available online for free.
The Made in Liverpool Watch List is a list of films and TV made in Liverpool and where to watch them – compiled by Liverpool Film Office.
Eat at a Restaurant (at home)
