IT feels as if we are living through apocalyptic times, so what better entertainment than Armageddon Attenborough, at the Beehive centre, Honiton, on Friday 15th July when Bumnote – Chris White and Hal Kelly – perform their lo-fi comedy musical about the apocalypse, people, and what it means to survive. You are promised a story that begins near the end, and is filled with dread, hope and annoyingly catchy tunes.
On Saturday 16th, the Beehive hosts Imagining Our Festival, a small-scale event that will lead into 2023’s Festival of Imagination with the theme of “Our Environment.” At 10am there will be a guided walk through Honiton’s green spaces, returning to the centre for coffee and chat. From noon to 1.30pm there will be a Q&A session with Devon’s Climate Change Officer, on the theme of “How we can help the planet in small steps?”
During the day there will also be drop-in art sessions with Isgard Wild and a creative writing workshop for aspiring writers with poet/dramatist Chris White (this event must be booked).
As well as new films, and a screening of Prima Facie, direct from the West End, starring Jodie Comer in a critically acclaimed solo performance, there will also be a dementia-friendly screening of the comedy thriller Western, The Sting (1973) starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford, on Thursday 28th July at 2pm.
