BE Tickets

BE will be staging a unique immersive performance, featuring the sound of 40,000 live working honey bees complete with accompaniment by renowned musicians to create a truly powerful soundscape.

The band BE is a project instigated by artist Wolfgang Buttress working with a collective of accomplished musicians including Tony Foster, Kev Bales, Deirdre Bencsik, Camille Buttress, inspired by the work of scientist Dr. Martin Bencsik and, of course, the dedicated efforts of 40,000 honey bees. The soundscape originated as the audible aspect of the sculpture called 'The Hive' which is situated at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and has also been released as an album entitled One to much critical acclaim ( In the best of 2016 Rough Trade and Guardian albums of the year) Now you can experience BE as a multisensory live performance.

A truly amazing immersive experience. The vibrations of a live bee colony housed at Brackenhurst in Nottinghamshire will be streamed live into the dramatic venue using state of the art technology. A 3D surround-sound system accompanied by compelling visual imagery will create a mesmeric spectacle complimenting the extremely talented musicians. The performance is not to be missed and the memories will last a lifetime.

Artist Wolfgang Buttress specialises in exciting new ways of understanding space and has worked with perfumers and the candle makers Haeckels to create illuminations which will fill the church with light and scent.

This will be the latest of a series of critically acclaimed performances by BE. Their past events have included two sell out shows at Nottingham Arts Theatre and a string of appearances at this summer's festivals including Blue Dot, Caught By The River, End Of The Road and Glastonbury.
