Take care,

Firstly, I want to thank this community for already providing some really valuable resources, threads, and generally just helping each other out during this difficult time. Community is really important at a time like this, and it's amazing to see everyone coming together and getting on with things as best they can, and helping others.

The guys over at MyDealz have an amazing thread (image heavily inspired ^^), listing some of the things we can do for entertainment whilst indoors, so I thought it was maybe a good idea to collect all the UK offers in one place. Quite a few were sourced on site, so i've tried to give credit wherever possible.

If you see anything I've missed, please be sure to let me know via PM or comments and i'll happily keep adding to the list
