Stay occupied – five free resources to keep you entertained at home

We don’t know about you, but we are loving the free resources that have been made available to the public this week. Easy to access from the comfort of your own home, there is everything from filmed theatre and virtual museum guides to podcasts aplenty.

We’ve selected five of our favourites that we hope will keep you entertained while you’re at home. Have you got a recommendation? Let us know on Twitter @NSTheatres.

  1. Listen - BBC podcasts

Now is a great time to catch up on all of those must-hear podcasts you couldn’t fit into your day previously. Dive into the history of well-known personalities with Desert Island Discs, have a laugh with Friday Night Comedy or get deep into the theory of film with Kermode and Mayo’s Film Review.

  1. Read - Total Theatre archives

Travel back through performance history with Total Theatre Magazine’s total back catalogue. With every issue from 1989 now available to read for free, there is plenty to keep you occupied – and interested.

  1. Watch – National Theatre at Home

Get immersed in the power of performance with an NT Live. Available to watch for free every Thursday, the National Theatre invites you to get cosy at home and enjoy high quality work.

  1. ‘Visit’ – Virtual museum tours

Google’s Arts and Culture section invites you to take a virtual tour around some of the world’s most-loved museums while staying safe inside your home.

  1. Play – Boardgame Arena
