The Beehive in Honiton will be showing films again this month after the Government eased the Covid-19 restrictions.

It was with ‘great joy’ that the Beehive team threw open the doors to the public again for a couple of films at the end of October.

The warm response from those who came and enjoyed the big screen experience was ‘wonderful’.

However, lockdown two was then announced and a re-jig of films swiftly followed.

A spokesperson for the Beehive said: “Despite the limited re-opening, it was extremely worthwhile receiving positive feedback from our audience about the Covid security measures implemented and how pleased they were to return.”

Local resident Tim Lawrence recently visited the Beehive to see the film Love Sarah, he said: “It was so nice to see the Beehive open again. It is such a wonderful facility. We are so lucky to have such a fabulous arts venue here in Honiton

“I am looking after my 93-year-old parents so have to be very COVID careful. I am naturally anxious about any ‘gathering’ of people. I shouldn’t have had any concerns about visiting the Beehive because all the staff and the venue were geared to preventing any possible spread of the virus whilst still maintaining the usual friendly and welcoming service.
