5 ways to get your Gloucestershire culture fix during lockdown

From backstage theatre tours to a digital museum challenge, SoGlos has rounded up five ways to get your culture fix from Gloucestershire festivals, museums and theatres during the Coronavirus lockdown.

Staying home doesn’t mean missing out on exciting insights and experiences from some of the county’s establishments – with SoGlos rounding up five fabulous ways to get your Gloucestershire culture fix during the lockdown.

1. Attend a virtual festival in Gloucestershire

Bringing explosive learning opportunities to living rooms across the county and beyond, Cheltenham Festivals has launched an innovative virtual Cheltenham Science Festival @ Home event.

2. Take a virtual tour in Gloucestershire

The lockdown has given us the chance to see things we’d never usually see at some of Gloucestershire’s most iconic attractions. There’s a chance to go on the Everyman Theatre’s virtual backstage tours, Gloucester Cathedral has a 360 tour showing off its spectacular architecture. Plus, south of the border, the Roman Baths has a virtual walkthrough of its four main features.

3. Catch an online show in Gloucestershire

Although Gloucestershire’s theatres are closed right now, plenty of them are streaming shows live online. With much-loved performances, educational shows and even pantomimes to choose from, grab some popcorn and make a night of it!

4. Contribute to a digital museum in Gloucestershire

The Museum of Gloucester is looking for the oldest items in your house for a digital museum challenge during the lockdown. As well as sharing interesting artefacts on their social media, curators are asking people to dig out their antiques, take photos and send them in to add to the digital collection.

5. Learn some local history in Gloucestershire

Gloucestershire has a rich and diverse history, from Romans to royalty. Take some time during the lockdown to swot up on interesting facts to share with your mates or use in a virtual pub quiz. See 9 iconic moments in Cheltenham’s history and 15 fascinating historical facts about Gloucester to get you started, fact fans.
