Lots of Great Activities in February Half term!

Half Term sees a wide range of activities at Geopark venues with plenty to choose from.

In Worcester it is the Love Worcester Festival. Our Worcester members Worcester Cathedral and Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service have a range of events. The Cathedral has Awesome Adventures for families on Monday and Tuesday where you can make a range of crafts, and on the Monday you can have a selfie with the amazing Tudor Legacy Ladies. At The Hive you can go Behind the scenes of the archives and we have hands on History in the children on Thursday where children can be archaeologists and see what they can find in the sandpit. The week ends with an urban pilgrimage from the cathedral to three of the city’s historic churches.
