- 20th February 2017
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 https://e-services.worcestershire.gov.uk/LibraryEvents/EventDetails.aspx?id=308
There are plenty of other events happening around the city and you can see them all at http://www.visitworcestershire.org/worcester/Love-Worcester.aspx
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!
