The Beehive, in Honiton, has issued an open invitation to all primary-aged children who enjoy drawing.

As a part of the Beehive’s celebration of the life and works of William Shakespeare, the venue is aiming to put on a display of pictures (drawn, painted or collage) of children’s favourite Shakespeare characters.

As a result, it is inviting youngsters to submit their efforts.

The only restriction is that the character fills an A4 sheet of card or paper and has your name, age and school written at the bottom.

The pictures will then be displayed in The Beehive’s gallery, which members of the public can see and enjoy, when the Dowell Street venue is open.

Wendy Van der Plank, from The Beehive, said: “The exhibition will start on Wednesday, June 1, so please bring your pictures in by that date.

“We really look forward to seeing your favourites, whether they be the witches from Macbeth, Banquo’s ghost, Puck or Bottom, Titania, Juliet or Malvolio!”
