Inspiration During Isolation

Inspiration During Isolation

Let's start this day by making a difference. We at Paguro try to give back to the community every single day. At this challenging time, our focus is on how we can make a difference to those around us, be that our artisans, our employees or you, our customers.

We put our thinking caps on and searched the web to find the best entertainment to make a difference during this time at home. What's even better? Most of these treasures are free for everyone to enjoy.

Culture in your living room

  • Entertainers face a challenging time but why not support them by viewing a free screening over the coming weeks. Check out these links for the Royal Opera House and Opera National De Paris for free screening dates and times.


Disney Fans

  • It’s a great time to watch all of the Disney films you've never seen (too ashamed to say you've never seen the original Lion King? Use this time to change that!)  


Miss the eating out but don’t want to compromise on great food and wine? A perfect time for you to polish up your own cookery skills and learn from the best:

  • What could be better than to learn how to make pasta from an 84-year-old Italian nonna?
  • Learn Italian cooking from the best? Massimo Bottura, the chef patron of Osteria Francescana, a 3-star restaurant based in Modena Italy is here to teach us how to cook up Michelin standard food in your own kitchen! Live streaming from his Instagram tv
  • Virtual Wine Tasting - Quality Wines in Farringdon, UK are hosting a daily online wine tasting session via their Instagram Live. Cheers to that! 

Fitness Fanatics

  • Everyone is talking about Joe Wicks' daily PE lessons - ideal for burning off energy while the kids are off school.

  • Nottingham-based yoga instructor Caroline has also made a number of sessions available on her youtube, for those who like their exercise a little more sedate.

Book Worms

  • Listen to some short TED talks to boost your knowledge of the world 

  • If you're looking for educational inspiration for your kids, Audible has made hundreds of kids audiobooks available for free, as has David Walliams 

Activities with friends


Why not use this time to try something that you have always wanted to but never had the time? You never know, maybe you’ll find something that will change your life forever. The most important thing though is to stay safe and well.

If you find any interesting activities, share them with us and we can share them more widely.
