    Step back in time with Tudor Day at The Hive

    • 3rd March 2015

    On Saturday we will be turning the clock back to the year 1575 in the Children’s Library here at The Hive – Queen Elizabeth is about to visit Worcester and the city is making preparations.

    Paul Harding, from Discover History, will be here in costume and armed with replica artefacts, to talk about what it would be like to live in Worcester in 1575 and how people would have prepared for the Queen’s visit.

    We will have documents from the archives, which tell us about how Worcester prepared – including instructions that all dung hills were to be taken away! There will be opportunity to draw an illuminated letter, based on decorated documents we have, and compare modern Worcester with a map of Elizabethan Worcester to see how the city has changed over the centuries. You can also find out about the link between Elizabeth I, Worcester and the Black Pear. There will be a treasure trail round the children’s library with a Tudor theme and displays of history books to borrow.

    The event runs from 10am to 3pm, is free, and you can drop in any time.
