Honiton’s Beehive was buzzing with activity during the fourth Festival of Imagination on Friday and Saturday.
‘Colour’ was the theme of this year’s hands-on science and arts event for all ages.
Staged in memory of festival founder Dr Sue Waring, who sadly died last year, there was a Memorial Lecture with demonstrations by Professor Peter Vukusic called ‘Light Fantastic: The Science of Colour’.
On Friday local primary schools took part in workshops, presentations and activities.
In the evening the Beehive cinema presented ‘Loving Vincent’ - the world’s first painted feature film about the life, work and untimely death of Vincent Van Gogh.
On Saturday some 500 people enjoyed a variety of free events which included talks with interesting displays, puzzles, science and animation workshops finishing with a Fizz Pop Science Show then a screening of ‘Star Wars: The last Jedi’.
Committee member Wendy Van der Plank said it had been an excellent two days – ‘exceeding all our expectations’.
