THE Worcester festival returns to the city for another day. Today, Worcester Cathedral has fun activities for the family to enjoy learning about the beautiful historic venue.

Some activities are perfect to print off and bring along with you if you plan to visit to the Cathedral, but the majority can be enjoyed at home. Visit to take part.

If you do visit Worcester Cathedral, why not try another event while you are in the city centre? The Hauntology is a spooky futuristic ghost walk. For this you will need your mobile phone and your wits about you, as one wrong step could be your last as you search for the secret of immortality. Follow the Eventbrite link in the Hauntology event on the Worcester Festival website to start your ghostly adventure.

The Cathedral aren’t the only ones who have been busy preparing things for you to enjoy at home, The Hive and Worcestershire Libraries have also been creating online content including their collection of videos Poetry in Motion.

A new one is published every Friday at 2pm. To watch today’s and previous ones visit The Hive’s Facebook page, @TheHiveWorcs.

Worcestershire Libraries are part of the Living Knowledge Network and they have opened up their Network to Library users providing exclusive access to cultural events, include literary and cultural debates; author talks and panel discussions on key cultural developments.

Today is the last instalment of Crafty Carrot Does Kids Craft. Hannah the Crafty Carrot is making a stompingly good paper plate dinosaur. If you’ve missed anything she made in the series or would like to take part in today’s crafting fun go to Hannah’s Facebook page @CraftyCarrotGifts.

There is a fabulous eco project that is part of this year’s Worcester Festival. Organised by the Canal and River Trust they are encouraging people to take a walk any time during the Worcester Festival, along a river or canal near you and enjoy it’s beauty, take a bag and gloves with you, and for one hour of your walk, pick up any plastic that you find and take home with you to dispose of in your recycling bin to help the wildlife and environment.

Did you know that if everyone who walked by the riverside or canal picked up just one piece of plastic, the riversides and canals would be plastic free in just one year.

If it wasn’t good enough that you are helping the environment and wildlife by taking part, the Worcester Festival are sweetening the deal with a photo competition.

Simply take a photo of you and the plastic you have picked up and email it to the three best photos will win a peacock cuddly toy.
