The List

The List has always been a great place to find out what’s going on around the country. But you may not have realised it can also help you discover interesting things to watch, listen to, or learn about online. There’s a bit of everything, from classical music to theatre, visual art and educational activities.


You may think that Airbnb is just where you go to rent properties. Not true. You can also find a whole host of interactive experiences from around the world, including kid-friendly field trips with inspiring hosts.
