Five virtual events to keep you entertained over the May Bank Holiday

Despite the Covid-19 restrictions, there's plenty of exciting gigs and quizzes to partake in over the course of the May Bank Holiday from the comfort of your own home.

We've compiled a list of five such virtual events to keep you entertained whilst we stay at home.

1) Tune into this week's 'Garden Gaff Party' tonight from 8pm

The creative individuals at Garden Collective, who are dedicated to sharing and collaborating across all areas of culture, established 'Garden Gaff Party' last month.

Every two weeks, talented up-and-coming Irish and Portuguese acts livestream from their houses, inviting the public to tune in and listen to some music from 8pm until 2am. 

Its unique format brings multiple artists into a single stream, meaning music-lovers around the world can sit back and enjoy the show, without having to flick from profile to profile.

Tonight, Cork musician, Caoilian Sherlock will be performing along with other great artists and DJs including Breno Laureano & DeVibe.
