Culture Club

Diverse people reading books

We can’t go to the cinema, restaurants, pubs or shops. What can we do? We can read, watch TV and listen to podcasts and music, that’s what. But where to start? How about with some recommendations from the Property Week community?

Please send us your top book, Netflix and music picks and we will post them here. They can be as high or lowbrow, funny or tragic, relaxing or dramatic as you like – although perhaps steer clear of anything too depressing or apocalyptic, I don’t know, like the 2011 movie Contagion.

Send them to our Twitter and LinkedIn channels using #PWCovid19help including a few lines on why you’ve picked them and, if you can, a picture of what you’ve picked. Happy reading, watching and listening!

Can't cook, will cook

Have no fear. ‘Can’t cook, will cook’ is here. Please send us your favourite family recipes or signature comfort dishes and we will share them with your fellow Property Week readers.
