Bluebeany Art Club #10 Power – live on Facebook

The 10th installment of the Bluebeany Art Club. Things continue to change with the lockdown but a lot of people who are still on 100 percent lockdown so lets keep going… same again, just for fun.. no pressure.

The theme this week is Power as in Systems of Power and Oppression.. Think Dada and the artists who reacted to the events happening around them… The time we are living in may bring some interesting ideas for artwork.

You can use anything, do anything, paint, draw, collage, photograph, dance, sing, write… post what you make on here and I will draw a name from a hat for a special prize.

You can find out more on the Facebook event page.

Date: Sunday 31st May
Time: 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Beyonce Bingo! – live on Zoom

Social Isolation is a way to bring some games, laughter and friends to your living room, while raising money for amazing causes.

Who run the world? Beyonce of course. So let’s praise Bey and get drunk in love this Sunday special with Beyonce Bingo.

Think a game of party bingo with your number card playing for a line and full house, but instead of numbers being called out you’ll be singing and dancing along to all your favourite Beyonce and Destiny’s Child bangers.

We’ve even got a live dancer on hand to show you the moves to some of the best songs (if you don’t already know them off by heart). And if that wasn’t enough, 10% of your ticket sale will be donated to Refuge. So get your tickets while you can!

The Lockdown Comedy Guide

Due to only being able to work on the events website in my spare time, I couldn’t possibly bring you all of the amazing comedy taking place during lockdown. This is why I highly recommend you take a look at The Lockdown Comedy Guide.

They provide listings for all the standup (and standup-adjacent) online events happening during the lockdown. These are live events only, no pre-recorded events. There are events happening every day so if you like comedy, check them out 🙂

Virtual Park Yoga – live on Facebook and YouTube

Just like Park Yoga; the virtual sessions are FREE, everyone is invited (including children, dogs and cats!) and all abilities are welcome.

Find out more details on the Facebook event page.

Date: every Sunday
