About the event

There's been a terrible storm and much of the wildlife has fled from the Hive, so we desperately need the children's help to create a magical spell that will bring back all our precious birds, animals, bees and butterflies.

Children will delight in solving our riddles, finding our clues and completing our magic spell. And, there will be the chance to make a magical nature wand to take home. Plus, every ticket holder will get a FREE vanilla ice cream from our café on their way out.

This event is recommended for children aged between 3-8 years old. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. Adults do not require tickets. Children under the age of 18 months do not require tickets. The event is suitable for prams and wheelchairs. Parents do not need tickets.

We estimate the activity will about take about one hour however families can complete the activity at their own pace so it could be more or less - it’s really up to you.


**Covid Safety Measures**

In planning this event we have carefully adhered to the government guidelines and worked closely with our Health and Safety team to offer the best protection possible for visitors and staff. Below are some of the key measures we have put in place:

  1. Staff and customers are advised not come onsite if they or anyone in their households are displaying symptoms of coronavirus.
