Free and cheap things to do at home this weekend.
UPDATE 16th April – It looks like the wrong link was in this week’s email – click here for my guide for 16th April onwards.
While we’re all in lockdown I thought it would be good to bring back my Cheap Night In feature, which I ran when I first started the blog back in 2014.
It’s essentially my pick of the free and cheap entertainment available to you at home. Here are a few things for this weekend. Hopefully there’s something here that works for you.
Here’s my guide to the different TV and film streaming deals and trials right now.
A new feature-length episode of the sci-fi comedy premiers on Dave Thursday night and will be on catch-up too.
We recently blitzed through all six seasons of US comedy Community over on Amazon Prime, but it’s just moved over to Netflix. It’s one of my favourites.
Spiderman Far From Home / Yesterday
A couple of big films are coming to the Sky Cinema pass of NOW TV this weekend. It’s possible to get a 7-day free trial, or pick up a pass for under £4.
Here’s a wider guide to watching theatre, dance and opera at home.
This National Theatre production starts Thursday at 7pm and will be available for a week.
Jesus Christ Superstar
From Friday at 7pm for 48 hours you can watch Tim Minchin, Mel C and Chris Moyles (yep!) in Andrew Llloyd Webber’s 2012 revival. Watch here.
Andy Warhol at the Tate Modern
It’s only 7 minutes long, but this short curated walk around this Warhol exhibition will hopefully give you your art fix.
BBC 6 Music Festival
You can still watch live sets on iPlayer from last month’s festival. Acts include Bombay Bicycle Club, Roisin Murphy and Kate Tempest.
1990 World Cup Semi: England v Germany
The BBC Sport website and iPlayer will be streaming this classic football match on Sunday at 3pm.
