Looking for something to keep the children busy in lockdown?


Back in the spring lockdown, we worked with a range of opera, music and theatre creatives who self-filmed some short videosĀ  with creative and musical projects for children to make at home. We thought we’d highlight these again now we are back in lockdown, so that parents and guardians might be able to try out some of these projects when homeschooling is over for the day.

Follow the links to watch each short video.
