“Jazz Evening”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Went to a jazz evening at The Hive it was an excellent evening out. The venue is small, so there is a great atmosphere. There are drinks on sale which are also reasonably priced. Excellent evening out.

“Brilliant Jazz venue”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

As a jazz fan I feel very fortunate to have The Hive in my home town. The standard of the acts I have seen there has always been excellent and the intimate venue gives the audience the opportunity to really feel part of the music (there acts play on the same level as the seating). The monthly Shrewsbury Jazz Network gigs showcase the talents high profile jazz performers from the UK and around the world, the gigs cost as little as £12, which is incredible considering the ability and experience of the acts on offer.

“Great buzz”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

I had some time to kill in Shrewsbury this morning so I decided to drop by The Hive. I used to drama here growing up and ran an event here myself a while back, but had never just taken time to sit and have a cuppa and ponder what else it has to offer. The staff are always so friendly and I could easily spend an hour or two having a natter with them about what's happening in the venue. I settled myself in for a cup of tea whilst looking at the collection of local photography being showcased. Does every other arts venue have pets? Because they should! Rabbits and birds frequent the beautiful little studio garden. I felt quite at home. Maybe next time I'll go for a longer visit and have a biscuit to go alongside my brew.

“Great community arts venue”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

I have attended a few film screenings, by Shrewsbury film Society and Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival (LGBT).

Staff are friendly, helpful and obviously committed to values that encourage equality. They have great events for young people, getting them involved with creativity. They are enthusiastic about what they do.

The venue is informal, yet comfortable and well-equipped. It feels welcoming to all.
