This February half term The Hive has a range of activities for children of all ages to entertain them over the holidays.
On Tuesday 18 February, there will be an interactive session of storytelling and illustration based on the book Max & Luchia: The Game Makers run by author Kevin Brooke and illustrator Seraphim Bryant. Suitable for children aged 7–11, this interactive workshop will encourage young people to read, illustrate and practice their own skills in creative writing. Booking for this event is essential and costs £1.00 per child.
For children who enjoy learning about history, on Thursday 20 February, between 10.00am–3.00pm, there will be a free ‘Hands on History’ drop-in session. Part of the Love Worcester Heritage Festival 2020, this event will take place in the Children’s Library in The Hive and will be full of fun activities with objects hundreds of years old.
On Friday 21 February, storytelling specialists, Rhubarb Theatre, will give a theatrical performance of Henry Moon and the Greasy Spoon. This performance is perfect for families who enjoy theatrical play, puppetry, dance, song and lots of laughter. There will also be the opportunity to meet the characters afterwards. Tickets to this event are £7.00 for adults and £4.50 for children, and booking is essential.
Every day, at 11.00am and 2.45pm throughout the week, there will also be the opportunity for children to hear the best bits of books with the free drop-in ‘Half Term Tales’ sessions hosted by The Hive librarians.
