Coronavirus: This weekend's top virtual days out!

Coronavirus: This weekend's top virtual days out!

Published by The Stray FM News Team at 6:36am 28th March 2020. (Updated at 6:43am 28th March 2020)

There's plenty that can be done from the safety of your home - whilst movement is restricted by the Government.

  • After our movement's been restricted to only essential journeys out of the house, days out aren't an option this weekend.
  • But there's still quite a lot you can do around Harrogate, Craven and Wharfedale...but virtually!
  • Here's a round-up of some of the online events and activities taking place this weekend.

This weekend is the first weekend since new rules were put in place by the Government, putting severe restrictions on our lives, specifically on when we're allowed to leave the house.

Going out is now only permitted for essential shopping (as infrequently as possible), one form of exercise per day, supporting vulnerable people, or going to work if it's impossible to work from home.

That makes days out impossible. But luckily we live in an age when we can do virtual days out from the comfort of our own home...virtually!

Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Fancy a day on the rollercoasters of Blackpool pleasure beach, but without the long trundle down the A59 - or even the queues?

Luckily you can! All you need is an internet connection, and if you're feeling adventurous, why not build yourself a makeshift rollercoaster car with the dining room chairs?

And then get this on the telly...

Over in Hull...

Why not bob down to the other end of the M62 and soak up some culture?

There are 3D virtual tours available online of Hull Minster, and the Hull Streetlife Museum of Transport.

While you're at it with the culture, why not teleport down the M1 to the British Museum in London?

Test your knowledge!

All Saints Church in Ilkley are running a quiz live on YouTube on Saturday night.

Why not set up a mini competition with a few mates - play along from the comfort of your own living rooms!

Still in the quiz mood after the weekend?

This might be one for after the kids have gone to bed - but the team who normally run the pub quiz at The Fleece in Skipton are running it online.

It's happening on Tuesday nights rather than Mondays, as it's being run in conjunction with the Sun in Bradford.
