Love Worcester

Once again February Half-term sees the return of Love Worcester festival, as heritage venues throughout the city invite residents and visitors to come and explore.

Here is The Hive we have a couple of events:

Hands on History
Thursday 23 February 10am-3pm
We'll be in the Children's Library with a sandpit so children can take part in a mock –excavation and hunt for Roman artefacts. They can then take it to the identification table, draw/record it, and have a look under the microscope. There's also the opportunity to make a mosaic for a small charge of £2.50. No booking needed, just come along.

The Mystery of Shakespeare's Marriage and the World of Tudor Worcester
Saturday 25 February 2:00-3:30pm   £6
Join us on a Tudor themed behind the scenes tour as we show you documents and artefacts related to the 16th century. We'll look at Shakespeare's marriage bond and discuss whether there is a discrepancy with the Bishop's Register, browse Shakespeare's grandfather's will, and find out what happened with Queen Elizabeth I visited the city. We ran this tour twice last year and it was sold out both times. You can book online at

There are plenty of other events happening around the city and you can see them all at

Love Worcester also saw the launch of a film promoting the members of the Worcester Heritage Forum and hopefully highlighting things people may not have been aware of before.

We hope you get a chance to enjoy some of these events this week and find out about Worcester's great heritage!
