September 2019 at The Beehive

There’s a sizzling line up of sensational shows and concerts for September at The Beehive along with some pretty fab films too!

We are delighted that The Neil Maya Quartet are returning on Saturday 7th Sept after their fabulous performance of The Brubeck Project here in 2017, with their new show ‘1959’. 1959 was a seminal year and spawned some of the finest Jazz albums of all time including, of course, Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue and Dave Brubeck’s Time Out. The Neil Maya Quartet now brings some of the very best and most famous recordings from 1959 alive 60 years on. Expect Mingus and Coltrane amongst other jazz legends.

The excellent Paddleboat Theatre Company also return to perform- ‘Clare Hollingworth & The Scoop of the Century’ on Saturday 14th Sept at 4pm. August 29th 1939: Today it is reported that a young, intrepid journalist crossed over the border from Poland to Germany. There, she saw something that would change her life and history forever… This globe-trotting and playful family show embarks on the journey of Clare’s life. A life-story which has been forgotten for years. We’ll celebrate the work of a pioneer who changed the mould of journalism, not just for women but for everyone.

The Llynfi Valley has a long tradition of Male Voice Choirs and Côr Meibion Maesteg a’r Cylch (Maesteg and District Male Choir) is proud to uphold this tradition. Since its inception in 1974, the Choir has given immense musical pleasure to thousands of people at home and abroad and on Saturday 21st Sept they will be doing so at The Beehive. They have sung with Bryn Terfel and soprano Rebecca Evans and performed at Proms in the Park and the Royal Albert Hall so we’re thrilled to have them here in Honiton raising funds for a local charity.

Our final live show in September is a very special concert with acclaimed guitarist and composer Clive Carroll on sat 28th at 7.30pm. Since earning a 1st Class Honours Degree in Composition and Guitar from the famed Trinity College of Music in London Clive has toured and worked with guitar greats such as John Williams, Tommy Emmanuel, Xuefei Yang, Ralph Towner, and John Renbourn—as well as pop icon, Madonna! Acoustic Guitar Magazine calls Clive, “Probably the best and most original young acoustic guitarist/composer in Britain”, and Total Guitar Magazine includes him in their “Top 10 Best Acoustic Guitarists of All-Time”. Don’t miss this, quite apart from his extraordinary skill, Clive has a lovely rapport with his audience.

Throughout September we also have some great films and two National Theatre Live screenings; the ★★★★★ ‘Witty, filthy and supreme.’ – The Guardian, one-woman show ‘Fleabag’ (15) starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge on Thurs 12th at 7.30pm and ‘One Man, Two Guvnors’ (12A) the hilarious West End and Broadway hit featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from James Cordon, on Thurs 26th at 7pm.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
