There is never an uneventful day at The Hive. In fact, every day, The Hive becomes a bustling hub of life for children, students, and adults alike, no matter the day of the week. There is almost always something interesting going on.

Just this February, The Hive will be a host to numerous events aimed specifically at children and their families – a lot of them free!

Here is a list of the free events your child can attend this February!


Harry Potter Book Night

Lots of free activities will be available, including a hunt for the fantastic beasts, who have been set free around the library. Dressing up in Harry Potter attire for the evening is allowed, even encouraged.
There are two potion making shows: watch the expert potion makers casting their spells and making lots of chemical potions and reactions. See here for details and price.
