New season of events at The Hive

The Hive has launched its first What’s On guide of the year; with plenty of activities to entertain children, families and adults from the start of 2019 through to the end of April.

Harry Potter night will once again prove to be spellbindingly magical when it returns to the Hive on Thursday 7th February between 4:15-6:15pm.

As part of our wide range of February half term offerings, our brand new show for children will be premiering on Friday 22 February between 2-3pm. 'The Boy Who Wanted to Fly' performed by Rhubarb Theatre, tells the story of Billy, a poorly boy, desperate for his hospital stay to become more fun.

Councillor Lucy Hodgson, Cabinet Member for Communities said: "The What's On Guide is a great summary of all that the Hive has to offer over the coming months. There's plenty of fun to be had, and lots of new skills available to learn as we move from Winter into Spring."

The guide also features new adult learning courses, archive and archaeology workshops and family events.
Books Together, new for this season, will allow parents/carers to help their children become school ready by enjoying some fun activities inspired by a different children's book every week.

Our Computer Café begins this February, providing an opportunity to brush up on PC and online skills and learn to how to use the internet safely and securely.

On the first Tuesday of every month between 2-3pm, the Hive will play host to The BSL book club, allowing deaf and hearing people to come together and explore a new reading theme every month.

The Hive is open seven days a week 8.30am to 10pm.
