Christmas Fayre

Saturday 10th December - 10:00am – 3:00pm 

Get into the spirit of Christmas at The Hive’s FREE Christmas Fayre in partnership with the BIPC Worcestershire.  The day will include a Christmas Market showcasing local Worcestershire businesses and children’s activities including a Christmas Film dome, crafts and even story time from Father Christmas himself! 

The Christmas Market will be offering a wide choice of products many of which are eco-friendly, upcycled or locally sourced produce, as we are keen to promote a sustainable future here at the Hive. In addition, we want to encourage Worcestershire residents to ‘Buy Local’ and support small, independent businesses. The Christmas Market is sponsored by BIPC Worcestershire – a service which supports local entrepreneurs and start-up businesses through our library network. 

Activities will include:
