The long standing wish of the people of Honiton and Honiton Town Council to have a local Arts and Community Centre became reality when, in early 2014, Honiton Town Council completed £1.8m construction of a community centre which it owns. This became known as The Beehive.
Honiton Community Complex, which became a charity in 2015 (Registered Charity number 1162412), was established to help realise the public wish as well as provide management of The Beehive. Honiton Community Complex wholly owns Beehive Hospitality Ltd (BHL) which rents, manages and runs the café/bar in the Beehive.
