People are looking ahead to events in the future and how to create COVID19 friendly events as safely as possible. One of the leading ways people plan to reduce risk is by moving events outside, but where they can’t people are finding ways to maintain social distance in larger spaces, or just having to keep events small.
There’s a wider range of choice when it comes to COVID19 friendly events, and here are 6 ideas for fun events at home during a pandemic.
Have a silent disco at home
If you’re looking for a larger COVID friendly event, silent disco hire gives you the feel of a real music event whilst maintaining social distance, and without the noise complaints. This can mean holding an outside event in your garden without annoying the neighbours or finding a large enough space that you can maintain distance.
Silent disco hire is more affordable than a professional DJ or band, and you have the additional benefit of multiple channels, so you can run three different music channels for all ages.
Virtual pub quiz
You can download the questions online, pick a quiz master and hold a pub quiz by video call without going to the pub (but probably with the drinks!)
If you’re looking for a long-distance games night, you don’t need to fall back on the arguments of monopoly spread out across the country. There are loads of games night options you can play by video call using technology.
If you’re more low tech than high tech, each people buying Pictionary, getting a white board and setting up the camera to capture the drawing might well do the job. If you don’t want to buy anything at all, there’s always the Christmas classic – charades.
Murder mystery night
A night in for your social bubble, murder mystery fans or just fancy-dress fans can enjoy a fictional murder at home. DIY home box sets can cost as little as a fiver and go up to 8 people. Everyone gets a character which they have to dress up as, and mixed with some cocktails this can be a quirky night in for your bubble.
Cinema’s might not be for everyone at the moment and sitting in a car for a drive through might not give you much choice. Projectors and white screens are affordable and as nights get darker you can get everyone to bring their own chair and space out to enjoy the film of your choice outside.
For sound you can rent the same equipment you would for a silent disco and everyone gets a high quality sound experience that equals the feel of the cinema. The fact that you can use multiple channels means you could even get a couple of films on the go at the same time, to make sure you keep everyone happy.
Web chat dinner party
Everyone gets the same recipe and cooks it all ready to go, and you set up a screen each at the dinner table and enjoy the feel of a dinner party long distance.
The tricky part might be making sure everyone’s food is ready at the same time! But maybe using slow cooker recipes or having a cold menu might make the process easier and you get to see just how good everyone is in the kitchen (without having to eat their efforts!)
