Check out our 5 picks below:

Fun at home theatre with Fly High Stories

Kettle's Yard, Cambridge

Explore Kettle's Yard

While the famous Kettle’s Yard gallery in Cambridge is closed, their team have created a digital programme of activities to do at home including a virtual tour. The art-focused activities also include artists discussing and sharing images from their work at home, some great short interviews and some fun art projects for all of the family. We're especially enjoying the pebble art! Explore Kettle’s Yard here: https://www.kettlesyard.co.uk/kettles-yard-at-home/

We’re all missing being out and about, so why not create your own train, train station, bus and more with The London Transport Museum!
