Visit Kew Gardens
News Visit Kew Gardens

Ready to fully submerge yourself in nature after all those months of not really leaving the house? Get yourself down to Kew Gardens, which reopened last week, for a mega flora overload. The world-famous Royal Botanic Gardens has been given the go-ahead by the government to welcome visitors. Of course, it will be operating under strict social-distancing guidelines, though. The biggest change? All visitors, including members, will have to book tickets online for time slots and show proof of the slot on arrival. This is the first time Kew has insisted on this in its history.

News Check out ‘Mushrooms: The Art, Design and Future of Fungi’ online exhibition

‘Mushrooms: The Art, Design and Future of Fungi’ at Somerset House closed in March, but you can view the exhibition virtually. Browse John Cage’s mushroom notebooks, Beatrix Potter’s botanical illustrations and Carsten Höller’s suitcase of spinning, solar-powered fungi. To access the exhibition, download the Google Arts & Culture app, search the show’s title, and you’ll be able to project the mushrooms right into your living room. 

Visit the V&A’s ‘Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk’ online
News Visit the V&A’s ‘Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk’ online

The V&A’s ‘Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk’ was one of the first exhibitions in Europe to delve into the sartorial and social significance of the kimono, exploring its traditional roots from the 1660s in Japan to the garment’s recent reinvention in Japanese street culture. The museum has now released a series of five films made just before the country went into lockdown that will let anyone who didn’t manage to catch the show get an intimate 30-minute behind-the-scenes tour of the show, led by curator Anna Jackson.

Try Drag Aerobics with Dolly Trolley
Try Drag Aerobics with Dolly Trolley

Your regular exercise routine probably went out the window on day one of working from home, didn’t it? Never fear! London cabaret star Dolly Trolley is here to help you burn off all those extra calories you’re stress-eating with a drag aerobics class live-streamed on Instagram and Facebook Live every Wednesday at 7.30pm straight from Dolly’s living room. It’s free, but you can chuck her a few quid on PayPal for the effort! Go on, be generous: those squats don’t come for free. 

Dance at Queer House Party
Dance at Queer House Party

If you’d usually be spending your Friday nights requesting the new Lady Gaga at an east London gay bar, then this is the live stream for you. Resident Queer House Party DJs Harry Gay, Wacha, and Passer will be bringing you queer bops, throwback pop, house bangers and techno clangers, streamed right into your living room every Friday night.
