As lockdown rules ease, one poetry group has started holding live meetings again. Bradford’s Beehive Poets, who used to meet at the New Beehive Inn every Monday, went back there last week for the first time since lockdown, under strict rules that limited the meeting to six members, who wear masks.

Organiser Frank Brindle said the return to the Beehive “went ok. The pub will continue to be closed to the general public for the short-term. We only have room for six people together and maintain safe distancing, so I am going to operate a rota for our members."

There was another pub meeting last night (Monday) starting at 7pm until 9pm.

The New Beehive Inn is an Edwardian inn built in 1901. It has five gaslit bars and is one of only 150 pubs in the UK to be listed on Camra’s National Inventory of Outstanding Character Interiors.
