We may not be able to go out during the national lockdown, but that does not mean that we can’t attend events. 

While dealing with the coronavirus, many artists and organisations have turned to virtual events to keep fans entertained. 

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, here’s a list of shows you can check out.
