Honiton’s community centre has celebrated becoming an officially-registered venue for the Family Arts Standards.

“It has made us consider how we can improve our offer and communications to families and ensure that every visit is an enjoyable and rewarding experience.”

The standards are designed as a benchmark for organisations providing an exceptional welcome to families when attending an arts event – covering key areas such as programming and promotion, consultation with families, and facilities.

The Beehive presents a range of events suitable for children and families throughout the year including films, theatre performances, pantomimes and shows and hands-on events.
