With art at the forefront of St Ives lore it would be almost unforgivable for literature to not pay homage to the art world, with Poetry Inspired By Painters & Paintings on the 14th of May in the Arts Club you can enjoy performances by Neil Beardmore and Bob Devereux.

Also on the 14th is Dylan Thomas Day, celebrating the life of the Welsh poet on the anniversary of Under the Milk Wood. Enjoy poetry and song from the author through the middle of the day and enjoy the celebration of Thomas who lived in nearby Penzance in the late 1930's.
