The Hive What’s On

The new September to December Hive What’s On guide was launched last week. The guide is jam-packed full of a huge variety of events for children, hobbyists, people wanting to learn a new skill, discover their history, listen to some inspiring stories, find out more on specialist subjects, and to improve business connections and knowledge.

In case you haven’t managed to pick up a copy from reception yet, then here are just a few of the highlights.

Author’s Spotlight

This is a new event for the Autumn season, where a big, a new and a local named author will perform at The Hive.

For this Autumn we have FOUR author’s, including BAFTA nominee Deborah Moggach – author of ‘These Foolish Things’ filmed as ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’.

The Spotlight kicks off with author Anthony Cartwright, who will talk about his fourth novel, Iron Towns, an inventive tale of dreams of youth, football and industrial progress, on Friday 14 October at 7pm. Tickets can be booked online at

Beeline – University of Worcester Storytelling Festival for Children

There are some fantastic events for children taking place at The Hive including professional story-telling in the Story Pit on Saturdays through October and the ‘Little Frankenstein’ play by Lempen Puppet Theatre Company over half-term, which includes a Monster Making Workshop after the show.

Space Night

This year Space Night will be taking place on 5 October from 5 to 8pm. In the usual Hive form for this event, there will be some fantastic, engaging and fun activities, talks and shows bringing this fascinating side of science to life. This event is free to attend. On the night there will also be a Mad Science show in the studio, designed by NASA scientists. Tickets to this event are £3.50 for adults, £3 for children. To book on visit


As well as the Little Frankenstein Show and Monster Making workshops there is a Professorial Lecture by Professor Darren Oldridge on Halloween night. When is there a more apt time to find out about how the belief in the Devil shaped the old English culture of witch trials and civil wars?!

The local writing group will share haunting horror stories and poems on Wednesday 26 October, 6 – 9pm.
