Workshops


At the Hive we have a wide variety of workshops for children and young people, from animation to music making and everything in between. Our workshops are always extremely popular and sell out very quickly, so speedy booking is highly recommended if you see something you like!

If you're interested in seeing a workshop at the Hive that we don't currently offer, please let us know as we are always looking for new workshop ideas!
