The show must go online

#WonderLoves on Lockdown: Virtual Experiences.


Mar 26, 2020

In these unprecedented times, Team Wonder wanted to continue to serve our community, sending a weekly dose of positivity, community spirit and good vibes to our clients, suppliers, staff and followers all isolating at home.

In the first of these special blog posts, we're looking at the incredible virtual experiences that have sprung up in response to our need to stay at home and protect the NHS – staying in is the new going out! These new events just go to show that if we all pull together, no matter how far apart we may be, we can still enjoy experiences together.

Check out our daily guide below for fun things to get involved with – and stay tuned for more #WonderLoves Lockdown tips coming next week!

Watch live Shakespeare.

‘The Show Must Go Online’ is a digital project intended to try and get us through the current gloom by spending some time with the words of a man who knew a thing or two about plagues: Mr William Shakespeare. Led by classical actor and director Robert Myles, professional actors and experienced amateurs are invited to sign up to do the reading, and the public can follow along on YouTube every Wednesday.
