The Beehive community arts venue is open again for classes, community activities and meetings - with an events programme that restarts on June 11.
The team are working hard behind the scenes to make sure that the centre reopens safely and that everyone will feel comfortable and re-assured. 
June events begin with Undercover Hippy (full band) on Friday 11th. The band are festival regulars and are described as politically-driven acoustic roots reggae folk-hop, with feel-good vibes and a sly sense of humour. On Saturday, June 12 there’s a chance to see Lyme Regis on the big screen in Ammonite (15), a romantic drama in which a young woman (Saoirse Ronan) is sent to stay with Victorian fossil-hunter Mary Anning (Kate Winslet). The triple Oscar-winning film Nomadland (12A) will be on Friday, June 18. Critically acclaimed as one of the world’s greatest tribute shows, Simon & Garfunkel Through The Years performed by Bookends will be at the Beehive on Saturday, June 19, with two shows at 6.30pm and 9pm. 
On Saturday, June 26 at 4pm and 7.30pm is Peter Rabbit 2 (U).
The Beehive team has decided to continue with socially-distanced seating beyond the required date of June 21 for all its July cinema events. Films are now on sale and include Dream Horse (U), Sound of Metal (15), The Father (12A), Calamity Jane (U) and Cruella (12A). 
You can book in a group of up to six from any number of households, or in a group of any size from up to two households (each household can include an existing support bubble, if eligible).
A spokesman said: “Our heartfelt thanks go to our audiences and friends whose unwavering support has meant so much to us. We are now reaching out to ask for your continued support as we open our doors again and deliver what promises to be a fantastic summer back at the Beehive.”
