About the event

Howdy cowboys and cowgirls! A band of notorious hustlers have driven through the Hive and broken the laws of the land. They have caused such a nuisance that our Sheriff is pulling together a posse to track down these law breakers and drive them out of town.

In this epic adventure you will discover where our villains are hiding and what dreadful crimes they have committed. And as you cross the territories you will run into some dependable frontiersman who will help you round up these scoundrels.

Plus, because every good cowboy and cowgirl needs a good lasso we’ll be crafting our very own to take away and they’ll be a free ice cream for all the sheriff’s loyal helpers.

Due to Covid restrictions ticket numbers are strictly limited to act quickly to secure your place.
