Half-term at The Hive

If you are looking for things to do with your children this half-term The Hive is hosting a variety of activities.

Granny’s Game is a play all about travel and adventure. From wrestling with snakes to climbing ladders, Rhubarb Theatre brings to life the thrills of exploration and delivers a fun and energetic production for children from 5 years and upwards.

Showing at 1pm and 3pm on Thursday 23 February the play’s music and exciting story-line, based on the inspiring real-life heroism of journalist and explorer Nellie Bly, will keep the young audience enthralled.

For children who love to get interactive, the Hands-on History activity is a great introduction to archaeology and history taking place on Thursday 23 February from 10am to 3pm.

The event is part of the Love Worcester Heritage Festival and led by The Hive’s Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology staff.

Children can try their hand at using microscopes to examine objects spanning back hundreds of years and finding clues to discover Worcester’s past, or get creative with mosaic making, which costs £2.50.

Except for Code Club, all regular children’s activities that take place at The Hive will continue to run over the holidays. Rat-a-Tat Tales will have two extra storytelling sessions on Wednesday 22 February at 11am and 2.45pm with tales from Julia Donaldson books.

‘Wacky Wednesdays’ will have fun interactive parent and child sessions for pre-schoolers from 1.30 to 3pm, and Bounce and Rhyme and Baby Bounce and Rhyme will continue as normal on Tuesdays 10 to 10.30am and Fridays 11 to 11.30am.
