The Hive’s got half term opportunities galore for young people

Aged between 8 – 25 and looking for fresh activities to enjoy over the May Half Term?  Then look no further than The Hive.  With 2 great offers this Whit Week Holiday, there’s something for everyone.

For those aged 8 – 11 years The Birmingham Repertory Theatre Company are taking up camp at The Hive for 3 days from Wednesday 31 May – Friday 2 June and running a drama workshop.  ‘Darwin Detectives’ is a 3-day workshop where the participants will be exploring Darwin's past, searching for clues, and building their own short play to be performed to families and friends on Friday afternoon.  It’s £45 for the 3-day workshop and a wonderful opportunity to work with the hugely respected professional Birmingham Rep Theatre Company.

If Drama’s not your thing and filmmaking, aviation history, and drones are, then ‘Scars of the unfought battle – crash landings Shropshire’ might be for you.  This 5-day project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, is completely FREE.  Working with filmmaking professionals you’ll have the chance to make a short film exploring a particular plane crash in Shropshire, interviewing people who remember the crash and building your own creative story of the event.  The film will be screened at RAF Cosford Museum in September as part of an exhibition of the project.  Included are 2 days out, one to RAF Cosford Museum, the other to a crash site. 

Emma Croall of the Hive says: “Funding from Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund is fantastic in it allowing The Hive to develop exciting projects with professional organisations for the enjoyment of local people.  We’re really excited about a busy May Half Term at The Hive and welcoming lots of young people to our venue and perhaps Shrewsbury itself”.

To book places on either workshop please visit the website hiveonline.org.uk or phone 01743 234970.

The Hive, a registered charity and a Shrewsbury town centre arts & creative venue is able to bring this play to Shrewsbury audiences thanks to its Arts Council England funding.
