Come and join the West Midlands branch of the 20th Century Society in a walking tour of Worcester on Saturday 14th November 2015.

We’ll also look at new architecture from the last 5 years, including a boathouse and theatre, with a guided tour of the golden-coloured Hive, the first joint public and university library in Europe.
