Ice Age

  • 20th Jul 2018
  • Time: 10:30 - 16:30
  • Location: City Art Gallery and Museum
  • Cost: FREE

Celebrating half a million years of Worcestershire's history, from the time our ancestors arrived until the end of the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago.

Over this enormous timespan there were many changes in climate, from woolly mammoths roaming icy tundra in Bromsgrove, to prehistoric lions hunting the grasslands beneath Bredon Hill. Humans came and went with the warming and cooling of the climate. Lost Landscapes of Worcestershire will bring this little known period of our prehistory to life through the Ice Age exhibition and many associated events and activities.

Visit Ice Age and come face to face with a Neanderthal, crawl inside our Ice Age shelter and meet Fluffy the Woolly Mammoth.

The Ice Age exhibition is part of Lost Landscapes; a joint project between Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service and Museums Worcestershire, with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. For more information about the Lost Landscapes project see: www.iceageworcestershire.wordpress.com

Cost: Call Worcester Live Box office for more info

This summer Worcester Repertory Company brings another theatre production to The Commandery gardens.

"Arguably Conan Doyle's most famous mystery, The Hound of the Baskervilles is this year given the Worcester Rep treatment. Why is Mrs Hudson in the play when she wasn't in the original? Why is Sherlock Holmes convinced that the Hound of the Baskervilles has a beard? Why is Dr Watson so unbelievably stupid? Why do we let people from Droitwich buy tickets? Why can't we afford Benedict Cabbagepatch? Why is raining? Why have we asked people to come dressed up as dogs? Why are we here? You will get no answers at all to these and many other questions posed on the night!"
