What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a range of activities, such as plays, movies and games that give pleasure. It also includes hobbies and sports.

Technology has changed the cost, availability and quality of entertainment. But the forms that make up the content – stories, music, theatre, dance, art and games – are recognisably similar to those of earlier centuries. For example, the Scheherazade story from the professional storytelling tradition has inspired musical works by Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel, a film by Pasolini and an innovative video game.
