Comedy Streamed Live from The Covid Arms – live on Zoom

Enjoy some of the best comedy and entertainment out there from the comfort of your very favourite armchair. Our comics will be streaming from their homes all over the UK.

Please note you will only be able to
buy a ticket until 5pm on the day of the performance.

The money we raise will be split between performers and the Trussell Trust. When your livelihood disappears we don’t want to be the guys asking comedians to work for free.

You can purchase a link to the live stream or alternatively join our ‘front row’ seats where the performers will be able to see and interact with you (make sure you have a webcam and microphone).


The comedy will be hosted by Kiri Pritchard Mclean and the comedians performing will be:

Rhod Gilbert
Jessica Fostekew
Anna Man

There will also be live music from James Morton.

You can find out more information on the event page

Date: Saturday 30th May
Time: 7:00pm to 10:00pm

Minecraft Redstone: Summer Term – live on Zoom

We run robotics and coding classes, camps and clubs in the UK, for children aged 7 and above. Our goal at Code Kids is to make computer science hands-on, fun, relevant and educational.

Learn about electricity, circuits and electronics using Minecraft Redstone! Redstone components like levers are just like switches on real-world devices and redstone dust is laid down in the game like electrical wiring.

Discover how to use Redstone to create virtual logic gates, resistors, transistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, and sensors. Use these along with other components like pistons to build amazing mechanisms and self moving machines!

All of our courses must be booked in advance.
