Hive What's On Guide Published Wednesday, 10th May 2017

The Hive is launching its new season of events for children, families and adults from May through to the end of August.

The programme is filled with fun and informative activities, including the Summer Reading Challenge, National Book Start Week, theatre and poetry performances, films and business and education workshops.

This summer also sees the celebration of The Hive’s fifth birthday in July. An exhibition, dance performances, children's activities and competitions are planned throughout July as well as other events including author talks  through the year and a conference in March 2018.

National Bookstart Week in June brings a host of family activities that aim to encourage reading as a shared experience with children.

This year’s Summer Reading Challenge for 4 to 12 year-olds embraces the animal kingdom with an animal agent theme and an opportunity on the launch date on 1 July to have a close encounter with some fury friends.

The business centre has some excellent opportunities to help budding entrepreneurs lift their business ideas off the ground and the Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service has a number of workshops to reunite people with their past.

The Hive What’s On guide can be viewed online, and is also available in The Hive and other libraries and venues across the City. Feast your eyes on a varied programme of exhibitions, adult learning workshops and courses, talks and discussions, business events, groups and activities for young people and children, films, special events and Explore the Past sessions.
