Long time no see! We are back and kicking off 2021 with some fantastic online events you should definitely check out this week. Calling all music lovers, creatives, and cooking enthusiasts, this one’s for you! Here are our Top 6 Online Events To Keep You Entertained This Week.
Passenger Live from the Royal Albert Hall
January 10 2021
Just because our favourite bands and musicians can’t tour at the moment doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy live music! Passenger is kicking off 2021 in the best way possible! With an exclusive performance from the iconic Royal Albert Hall, broadcasting to audiences on January 10 2021 at 8 pm.
Michael David Rosenberg (Passenger) is famous for topping the charts in sixteen countries with his 2012 hit song “Let Her Go” which I’m sure you’ll all remember! Just in case you’ve forgotten, I’ve included the video above. #Throwback? Tickets for this exclusive performance are on sale now. Catch it while you can!
A Bowie Celebration Online Concert
January 8 2021
This next event is the one I know I’m most excited for! For one day on January 8 2021 there will be a global live-stream that is bringing together incredible artists from around the world to celebrate the life of David Bowie. The concert will include 3+ hours of music in celebration of Bowie’s life and legacy and will be performed by a variety of famous artists. Duran Duran, Adam Lambert, YUNGBLUD, and Mike Garson to name a few!
There are multiple tickets, packages, and VIP experiences available with this special celebration concert, and a percentage of every ticket purchase goes towards the charity Save the Children. Tickets are available now!
Tim’s Twitter Listening Party Event
This next event is still music-related but very different from the ones previously mentioned! The Charlatans frontman, Tim Burgess has been bringing fans and audiences closer through lockdown with his Twitter Listening Parties.
The idea is simple. First, you head over to TimsTwitterListeningParty.com, where you’ll find the full line-up of albums Tim will be listening to, and the exact times and dates he’ll be listening to them. When the date comes, using the hashtag #TimsTwitterListeningParty music fans and artists, including Tim across the world will be involved in a discussion of the album currently playing. You can share memories, ask questions, and interact with other like-minded fans using the hashtag!
This week, the listening party will feature The Feeling, Fujiya & Miyaga, Sarathy Korwar, Nitin Sawhney, Tom Vek, and Sex Pistols. Plenty to look forward to! To get a better idea, above I have included an interview with The Charlatans frontman explaining all about his listening party!
Cook Stars Hull: Online Event
January 7 2021
Spatulas at the ready!… Stepping away from music now and into the world of food with this next event! Founder of Cook Stars, Cathy Hardy has been keeping families entertained and children educated with her fantastic interactive online cooking classes. Due to the lockdown classes being such a big hit, Cathy now offers regular Academy / Family cook along sessions. Every week Cathy’s classes will alternate between a dinner and a pudding recipe. The class is suitable for the whole family, including younger children cooking with a helper, or for older children cooking unassisted.
Cathy’s sessions have won multiple awards! Food and Drink Entrepreneur of the Year, Best Creative Business UK, and Best Arts, Crafts and Skills UK, to name a few. Above I have included an introduction to Cook Stars, but you can find all the information you need including this week’s class schedule from the website!
SocietyX : Photography Editing 101 Workshop
The Society X Community has been featured a number of times in these weekly event articles, and rightly so! The worldwide digital collective of creators has been consistently supporting creatives and connecting communities through virtual experiences and classes since early last year!
Society X’s next event is with famed photographer Petro Onysko, who has worked with the likes of Bentley Motors and Tiffany & Co! Photography enthusiasts will have the chance to pick up some essential photography editing skills with this Petro’s weekly class. The classes are suitable for both photography newcomers and the more advanced. In this week’s class (Tues 5 Jan), Petro will take you through real-time edits and offer a Q&A session.
Enter Stage Right: Construction Activity for ages 6-11
Saturday 9 January, 10am
Something completely different for children aged 6-11. Build your own stage from card & take part in a Zoom activity where you create animations with other children.
Children construct their own card models from home at their own pace before the event, using a YouTube tutorial, and get to learn fascinating engineering principles along the way.
Then on Saturday, they’ll join in a fun, online Zoom activity where they’ll share ideas with other children and create funny animations together. Activities are led by an experienced school teacher.
The £6.99 tickets are per household, meaning that up to 3 children can take part in each session.
