Phil Beer Solo Show

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.

Sound of the Sirens.

Sound of the Sirens.

At the moment this is planned to be a reduced capacity, socially distanced show. If circumstances improve beforehand we may release seats for sale if it is safe to do so at the time. 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.



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.


The pairs’ musical and vocal dexterity dovetail beautifully on the co-written songs, which range from beautiful, emotive ballads, to up-beat, foot stomping, hands in the air, sing-along anthems. The dynamic duo and their musical creations translate very well onto recorded media, but it is in the live arena where the girls truly excel. There is a certain majesty about their live performances that simply cannot be put into words. It is this “je ne sais quoi” that keeps their loyal fans returning from far and wide to see these two perform. It is not just nearly two hours of high-quality live music you get for the entrance fee, a Sound of the Sirens show is much more than that. The onstage chemistry, camaraderie, and banter is worth the ticket price alone.



“Their harmonies are absolutely stunning and their vocal styles complement each other beautifully, as well as being excellent musicians who really know how to bring their songs to life”. – Entertainment Focus

While & Matthews

While & Matthews

One of the finest and most loved duos on the British and World folk/roots stages.


“They light up the room with their amazing energy” - James Taylor


"Truly gifted human beings" - Richard Hawley


British singer-songwriters Chris While & Julie Matthews celebrated a quarter of a century last year as one of the best loved and most prolific female duos to come out of this country.  


Chris While (vocals, guitar, banjo, dulcimer, bodhran and percussion) & Julie Matthews (vocals, piano, guitar, mandolin and bouzouki) are stunning singers, songwriters, musicians and performers whose energy and commitment to their craft, and to their audience, is boundless. They are two of the best and most hard working musicians on the world folk roots scene, both are highly regarded producers and they record everything that they are involved in at their own studio in a small Pennine town far from the Londoncentric music industry. They truly are inspirational women.


Though internationally acclaimed, they continue to be a leading force on the UK's acoustic/roots arts circuit. Their songs cover life as they see it, from the industrial waste lands of the north, to injustice and freedom, matters of the heart and everything in between. Their songs are covered by many revered singers the world over but it is While & Matthews' musical partnership and obvious joy of performing together that really brings their songs to life. As performers they are unrivaled and their audiences leave their concerts having been through an emotional journey.


Chris and Julie have been nominated ten times in the BBC Radio 2 Folk music awards in the 'Best Song, Best Duo, Best Live Act' categories and are past winners of the Best Duo Award.


"it's a real honour just to be an audience member but I've had the added honour of standing on a stage with them playing along in the background, things like that I'll treasure forever, truly gifted human beings"- Richard Hawley


"Chris While is the best singer in England" - Eddi Reader


"The undisputed queens of British folk duos continue to come up with the goods,

1st class songs delivered with to die for harmonies, immaculate musicianship & melodies that lodge themselves in your brain" - The Guardian

Police Dog Hogan.

Police Dog Hogan.

We can't wait to welcome back one of our favourite bands here at the Beehive.


Police Dog Hogan are a high-energy and eclectic eight-piece, combining fiddle, trumpet, mandolin, drums and guitars with four-part harmonies in an exuberant and genre-defying fusing of country, pop, folk, and rocking urban bluegrass. Much-loved Guardian columnist Tim Dowling adds his banjo to the musical mix.


The Sunday Times has described them as “wonderful”; the Telegraph named them one of its ‘favourite new bands”; Mark Radcliffe on Radio 2 said a “great night out was guaranteed” at their joyful shows; and veteran DJ Johnnie Walker praises their gigs as “a really good, fun time”.


Eliot James (of Kaiser Chiefs, Bloc Party, Noah and the Whale, and Two Door Cinema Club fame) produced the band’s second CD, and Al Scott (Seth Lakeman, Oysterband, The Levellers, Asian Dub Foundation) oversaw the new album, ‘Wild By the Side of the Road’, which spent several weeks in the official UK Americana charts.


Police Dog Hogan were one of only three UK bands invited to Nashville to perform at the prestigious Americana Music Association Awards, where DJ Bob Harris – in town for the awards – snapped them up for a recording that has become one of the most-watched YouTube videos on his “Under the Apple Tree Sessions” channel.


They’ve played at festivals from Port Eliot and Bestival to Kendal Calling and Larmer Tree as well as Glastonbury and the Cornbury Festival. Most shows on their last tour, from London, Bristol, Liverpool and Exeter to Salisbury’s City Hall were sold out and were rapturously received.

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
