Keeping you entertained

Published 28th January 2021

Take a look at our Inspire Online roundup of activities you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home!

Launched during the first national lockdown in 2020, Inspire Online brings together a wide range of information and events that everyone can enjoy whilst we socially distance over the coming months. With live events and new activities being added all the time it’s worth checking back regularly to discover more.

Here’s just a few of the activities, events and resources we have in store for you:

A library service is available for socially distant click & collect, but there’s also a wide range of eBooks, eMagazines and audio books available free of charge online for library members. We’ve got an online book club, interviews with famous authors and a range of other events planned too.

For young children we have Rattle, Rhyme and Roll sessions on video for you to enjoy with your tots, or join Granny Owl for a production of Story Explorers Online produced in conjunction with Nottingham Playhouse.

For older children and teens there’s a gripping audio drama to listen to ‘The Girl of Ink and Stars’ as well as Inspire Youth Arts online drama and dance sessions.
