With the weekend on the horizon, we thought that we would pull together a wee list of awesome online events that are taking place this weekend. We need something to fill our time so participating in the arts definitely ticks our box!
You won’t be disappointed with the lineup below. One of the things that we love about online events is that it doesn’t matter where you are or whether you still have your jammies on you can still have an awesome night! It’s also awesome that wherever you are you can enjoy events from all over the world.
