It’s been a hectic time at The Beehive and there is more to come.

After two fabulous sell out shows with our local lads, Joseph and Cole from India Electric Co and the opening show for legendary folk duo, Steve Knightley and Phil Beer’s new ‘Where we’re bound’ tour, it has all been pretty hectic but our brilliant team of volunteers seem to take it all in their stride, writes Wendy van der Plank, of The Beehive team.

With ‘Dire Streets’, a very fine band of musicians who faithfully re-create all those Dire Straits favourites, coming on Friday, April 13, and then two screenings of the very funny Aardman animation, ‘Early Man’(PG) on Saturday, April 14 plus Terry Stacey’s acoustic night in the bar on Wednesday, April 11,we’ll continue to be busy.

There’s also Tom Glover and ‘The Comedy Avengers’ on Thursday, April 19 and top notch movies coming up with Daniel Day Lewis’ last film ‘Phantom Thread’ (15) on Friday, April 20, along with the Dementia Friendly screening of the ’40s classic, ’How Green Was my Valley’ (U), at 2pm, that day, then the extraordinary ‘Loving Vincent’ (12A) described as ‘Hypnotic and beguiling’ by The New York Times, on Friday, April 27.

For the evening of our Festival of the Imagination on Saturday, April 28, we will be showing ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ (12A), at 7.30pm.
