Signs of Spring at Crowngate Shopping Centre
Signs of spring are all around us. It’s more daylight hours that make the day feel longer and allow you to pack in even more to a great day out. It’s waking up your wardrobe with new season trends. It’s the brand-new menus packed with fresh seasonal dishes and alfresco dining without the chill. It’s catching up with friends and laughs with the kids.
We are proud to share all the fantastic things our city and shopping centre has to offer this Spring.
Here’s what you can look forward to at Crowngate for FREE between 1st April – 15th May.

Crowngate’s Beehive Map
Did you know that according to the British Beekeepers Association, bees are known to fly as far as 5 miles for food, however an average distance would be less than a mile from the hive?
We’re plotting a map to identify where most of Worcestershire‘s beehives are located, and we need your help! If you have a hive, or know of any within the county, please email your postcode and a photo of your hive to email@example.com, and we will update the digital map.
