The Hive Worcester
Saturday 9th April - Monday 6th June
Gain an insight into the world beneath the river’s surface and be introduced to an endangered fish – the twaite shad and its epic annual River Severn migration.
The Travelling Exhibition is back in Worcester, ready for the twaite shad’s spring migration! This exhibition reveals the River Severn as a wild, watery highway for fish and nature. And we invite you to glimpse into the underwater world hidden beneath the river’s surface.
Held in the Atrium at the Hive, the exhibition is suitable for families and accessible for disabled visitors and has been created by Unlocking the Severn – a conservation and river engagement project.
If you have an interest in nature and wildlife, fish, or the River Severn more generally, this is an opportunity to stop and think about the wildlife under the water.
Alongside beautiful graphic panels telling the shad’s story there are two commissioned short films to watch – including a new animation about the journey the shad make up the River Severn in search of their freshwater spawning grounds.
