This To Do This Weekend In London

Polish Up Your Drawing Skills With Dan Whiteson

I’ve always enjoyed developing my painting skills and, with a busy full-time career, the opportunity to develop my drawing is still relatively new. Rather than waiting for inspiration, I decided to join The CARAF Centre’s adult evening classes to learn new ways of developing my painting and drawing skills. The adult evening classes are held weekly from 6:45 9 pm, on a Thursday evening in Waterford. Drop-in sessions run most Wednesdays between 5. 30pm and 7pm, with a new topic each week.

Sessions run for two hours, with Dan giving his tips in the first hour and those attending given an opportunity to practise their skills during the second, The London NET ( This session is priced at £7 per person, or £5 per person for members of  CARAF Centre     Get your tickets here:  CARAF's Summer Painting Classes. Step into the CARAF Art Gallery for a chance to fine-tune your drawing skills with artist Dan Whiteson. Whiteson’s own work includes landscape and seascape paintings, as well as vignettes capturing everyday life in his home county of Yorkshire.

This drop-in workshop is free to attend on a first-come-first-served basis, but booking is recommended to avoid disappointment. Hi! I'm Dan Whiteson, a British artist and designer. I’m offering a free, online drop-in session on the topic of drawing. Drawing is one of my first loves. I was taught to sketch as a child, and over the years, I've carried a sketchbook almost everywhere I've gone taking advantage of any downtime, from train journeys to waiting for friends outside cafes.

See An Online Theatre Show

All you need to do to enjoy these online theatre shows is log on to your computer and watch the performance or event from a screen. Many of the available shows will be streamed with the aid of Blue-ray discs or also known as digital video discs. Generally, there are two methods of viewing these shows. One is by downloading the show's content before watching while the other takes place using streaming services such as You tube, Vimeo, Facebook and Twitter.

Whether you fancy watching a different type of show or want to try something new, there are options for everyone. Therefore, if you love musicals and want to give Kinky Boots a go but can’t afford the trip to the theatre in London, why not watch one online? If you’ve never watched a musical before but really want to do something amazing tonight, where better to start than with Miss Saigon? There are hundreds of options at your disposal.

There are many worldwide websites that allow you to stream theatre performances such as BroadwayHD, Show TV and Stage Tube. However, if you're specifically interested in watching a show from the UK then these are your best options for an online theatre experience. Whether you want to channel your inner-Broadway diva or just discover a new hobby, there’s something to suite everyone and every budget. So, pack the family (and maybe a picnic) and escape to the theatre from your very own home.

Online shows are far more the norm than they used to be, with all the new exciting technology available. And whats more exciting than laughing at a show in your dressing gown while sitting on a bean bag?. All these elements combined to make Segregated Neutral Systems the most suitable for use in the south, that and the fact that the Southern Railway were in no hurry to electrify their lines. Gates are also numbered.

The concept of virtual galleries has become commonplace in popular culture and as smartphones, digital technology and the internet has become accessible to many more people, museums have realised they need to do their bit to engage a broader audience. You might be in the mood to explore royal dresses at Kensington and Chelsea museums, to marvel at the fashion of the 1960s at BFI Mediatheque, or to see some exquisite artifacts from ancient Civilisations at the British Museum archives.

Regardless of your interests, there are many ways to fill your day this weekend (apart from binging on Netflix) by taking a look at the digital platforms that our museums and exhibitions have put together. The museums of London have long been treasured by its residents and visitors, being ranked among the top in the world. Yet despite how amazing your visit would be (reduced entry fees, no pesky crowds), I know from my years of experience that youll likely be hesitating at the gates.

The thought of physically traveling to every corner of the city just to see the displays is probably more than you think you can handle. Ariana Ellis of The Isthmus says, “Even on a cloudy day, the Museum of London, with its virtual highlights tour (museumoflondon. org. uk/history-and-collections/virtualtours), lures us in from the street with their quality imagery and navigable layout”. It is indeed very easy to get lost for hours exploring the object search or the detailed object tours in the museums extensive online collection.

You may have to travel far to get there, but with the power of technology you can virtually visit a museum or exhibition any time of day. Leading London museumsand exhibitions are offering virtual tours and online resources, making it possible for anyone with a Wi-Fi connection to engage with cultural artefacts from afar. Why? Which brings us on nicely to the numbers themselves. London, Great Fire of London (U. K. ), Robert Hubert, firefighters, urban firefighting.
