Blithe Spirit

Unfortunately, due to the latest lockdown, we are unable to show this film. We will be hoping to reschedule when things have opened up again so keep an eye on the Box Office. Meanwhile stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you back when we can.

Directed by Edward Hall

Cast includes Dan Stevens, Leslie Mann, Isla Fisher and Judi Dench

Duration: 105 mins.

"True Love Never Dies!"

Based on Noel Cowards classic comedy.

Starring Dan Stevens as Charles, a pompous crime novelist with writer's block, and Isla Fisher as Ruth, his glamorous wife desperate to ascend Hollywood, Blithe Spirit, set in 1937, follows the catastrophic twists and turns that follow a home séance with Madame Arcati (Judi Dench) aimed at inspiring Charles to write his first ever screenplay.

But Arcati accidentally summons the spirit of his deceased first wife Elvira (Leslie Mann) and things really start getting complicated!

This new adaptation comes 79 years after Coward's play hit the West End and Broadway, becoming a huge hit and marks 75 years since the David Lean film starring Rex Harrison and Margaret Rutherford.

Hazel O'Connor: Breaking Glass 40 Years On - Hallelujah!

Our Box Office is currently closed for sales and we are awaiting further guidance on social distancing measures. When things are clearer we will put this event back on sale.

Breaking Glass 40 Years On-Hallelujah!

“They were absolutely fantastic, bringing the entire audience roaring to its feet.” Telegraph

The first major female star of the 80’s, award-winning singer-songwriter Hazel O’Connor rose to fame exactly forty years ago in 1980 starring in the film 'Breaking Glass'. There were hits and eye-catching Top of The Pops appearances aplenty along the way. Hazel's ageless songs include 'Eighth Day', 'Will You', 'Big Brother', 'Monsters in Disguise', 'Calls The Tune', 'If Only', 'Give Me An Inch', 'Blackman' and 'Hanging Around' - all of which seem even more relevant in our present times.

Celebrating the Hallelujah Moments of a stunning and illustrious live career Hazel is accompanied here by virtuoso saxophonist Clare Hirst (The Belle Stars, Communards, David Bowie), Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics)  keyboards and Tony Qunta (Odyssey/Edgar Winter) on guitar. This powerful blend of voices and musicianship brings a classy touch of energy, passion and fire to Hazel’s vibrant performance. With a special meet and greet immediately after the show you're in for a treat.

“It's all there, that voice, soaring sax …timeless.” Glastonbury Festival

“The sturdiness and earthy expression of her voice…marvellous” Hot Press                                            

More details can be found at www.hazeloconnor.com

When Hazel O'Connor was last at the Beehive it was a Sell Out and an amazing show - book early to avoid disappointment!

Friday 27 March 2020 performance has been rescheduled to Friday 19 March 2021. If you have pre-booked tickets, they will be valid for the new date.

Noble Jacks

With the fiddle leading the charge, Noble Jacks are out to take no prisoners with their high-energy footstompin’ rhythms, which have taken crowds by storm across the UK.

2017 saw the release of Noble Jacks’ debut album What the Hammer to much acclaim. A fiddle driven thrill ride, the band set out to capture the raw energy of their notoriously hectic live shows. Achieving radio play internationally, including support from BBC Introducing and Radio Caroline, the riotous album has become a firm fan favourite.

Since this point Noble Jacks have been touring relentlessly, with sold out shows across the UK on their headline tours, as well as shows at major festivals including Glastonbury, Isle of Wight and Bestival, plus major European festivals. With their second album, Stay Awake, released Spring 2019, the Jacks went straight into the top 10 Official UK Americana Album Charts – with a sold out concert and launch party at the renowned Concorde2, Brighton to a capacity crowd of over 600 fans.

Hailed as the finest purveyors of folk-influenced Americana, the band were invited to showcase at this years Americana Fest in Nashville where they went down a storm!

Phil Beer & Sound of the Sirens

Our Box Office is currently closed for sales and we are awaiting further guidance on social distancing measures. We are trying to reschedule, new dates will go up on the Box Office when we have them. Please note that it will NOT be Sunday 13th June, as advertised on Ents24. Thank you for your patience.

Phil Beer together with Sound of the Sirens in a Special Double Header event.

When given the opportunity to be together for this unique evening of music Phil, Abbe and Hannah leapt at the opportunity and they are all very much looking forward to it.

Phil is one half of folk supergroup Show Of Hands and is in much demand as a multi-instrumentalist and producer and has been described by the Guardian as 'where Steve Earle and Richard Thompson collide'. He was nominated for the coveted Musician of the Year title in the 2009 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. He is perhaps best known as a top-flight fiddler, but his skills don't stop there: he also plays slide, Spanish and tenor guitars, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American cuatro, not to mention contributing his rich and remarkable vocals. All are songs and music of memory and significance, sung in the subtle and melodic Phil Beer style and interjected with musings and amusings to an almost personal audience.

Phil will open the show and comes to the Beehive as part of the 'So Much to Choose From'  2020 Tour.  The solo shows for 2020 will be the last time Phil undertakes such a large number of performances and aim to encapsulate the last 40 years of his songs and music.

He will then be joined on stage by Sound of the Sirens and part of the show will be them making music together.

Sound Of The Sirens are Abbe Martin and Hannah Wood. They combine agile guitar-playing, soaring harmonies and lyrical, heartfelt songwriting to make lushly melodic music. They  released the critically acclaimed album This Time in early 2019 on independent label DMF Records. In Spring 2020 they will be playing a number of headline shows before playing festivals throughout the Summer.

“’This Time’ is a collection of moments, emotions, challenges and stories,” say the duo. “We’ve collected lyrics, melodies and ideas from the past couple of years for this project. We created this album last winter in an isolated barn in Wales with only guitars, a piano, wine and the dogs for company. The themes of time, love, loss, perseverance, hope and clarity are intertwined in these songs.”

Abbe & Hannah are very much looking forward to working with Phil again:-

"We are so excited to be sharing the evening with Phil Beer. He is always so lovely to work with. We managed to share a stage at Exeter Respect a couple of years ago and then borrowed his skills at Cottingham Folk Festival. Fingers crossed we get to play a few songs with him again this time.

We can't wait x"

The last part of the evening will be Sound of the Sirens on their own.

Saturday 13 June 2020 performance has been rescheduled to Friday 26 February 2021. If you have pre-booked tickets, they will be valid for the new date.

Phil Beer Solo Show

This will be a reduced capacity, socially distanced show.

In times like these, venues and artists need your support more than ever – When booking your seats, it would be much appreciated if you only leave 2 seats (1.5m+) between your bubble and the next party in the row. Booking efficiently will really help us to maximise capacity under Covid 19 guidelines and make our events more financially viable.

Charming, disarming and exceptionally talented, multi-instrumentalist Phil Beer is something of a national treasure on the folk, roots and acoustic scene. One-half of award-winning powerhouse Show of Hands, he is equally in demand for his solo shows. With the odd laugh thrown in for good measure, Beer’s flawless musicianship and rich vocals will leave you wide-eyed and wanting more. Phil is one of the most popular ambassadors for acoustic roots music. A dazzling instrumentalist, he is perhaps best known as a top-flight fiddler but his skills don't stop there: he also plays slide, Spanish and tenor guitars, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American cuatro, not to mention contributing his rich and remarkable vocals.

Alongside some Show of Hands classics, Phil will deliver his signature interpretation of much-loved folk and rock songs alongside a wealth of brand-new material, and there’ll be the odd laugh thrown in for good measure.

“A Phil Beer gig is one spent in the company of a true craftsman, a master musician and consummate performer” Spiral Earth.

Simon & Garfunkel Through the Years

Seventh Avenue Arts present: Simon & Garfunkel Through the Years

We are delighted this fabulous duo are returning to the Beehive after their sell out show in 2018.

Critically-acclaimed as one of the greatest tribute shows in the world, Simon & Garfunkel Through the Years has toured the globe extensively, receiving standing ovations and selling out theatres night after night.

Fronted by Dan Haynes and Pete Richards collectively known as Bookends, the show is a “masterpiece” (BBC Radio) in musicianship; exquisitely recreating the unmistakable sound of Simon & Garfunkel.

Featuring all the iconic songs, including The Sound of Silence, Mrs Robinson, The Boxer and the smash hit Bridge Over Troubled Water, this live concert experience is without a doubt the most authentic tribute to Simon & Garfunkel touring the world today.

“A masterpiece” - BBC Radio 

“One of the greatest tribute shows anywhere in the world” - Stuart Cameron, BBC and ITV Broadcaster
