The idea of having the first Monday of the month as a social in the Beehive for people associated with Artsite, or interested in being associated with Artsite seemed like a good idea. Our first evening was held on the 7th of April, and the next one will be the 5th of May, which is not only a Bank Holiday, but the start of the Literature Festival. As the name suggests, to make things simple, it will always be held on the first Monday of the month.
There is no particular agenda, the aim is to get people together in an informal, relaxed atmosphere and have a good time, which we did. Andy Mercer, landlord of the Beehive asked us if we wanted more light in the bottom bar, I thought the darkish atmosphere was quite good, but it wasn't good for photographs, I've got a choice of flash and no flash.
Hope to see you on the 5th May from 7.30pm onwards.
