St Ives September Festival

In September, there is nowhere better to be than St Ives as it hosts its annual September Festival. The Festival is a two weeklong celebration of St Ives’ past and present creative tradition. With musical events, walking tours and artists’ open studio’s just a stones throw from your luxury St Ives apartment, immersing yourself in this Cornish festival couldn’t be any easier. The September Festival captures the spirit of this seaside town, showcasing both its world-class art and the strength of its community.


Weekend Breaks

September is a fantastic time for a short break in St Ives. Three days allows you to explore the St Ives September Festival. Visit artists open studios during the day and in the evening make the most of the wide variety of live music offered at locations scattered throughout the town. From ceramic workshops on the beach to music events at cafes and pubs, there is something for everyone. The September Festival will ensure that your days and evenings are full of interesting activities and experiences.

The weather will still be warm and the town even less busy as it prepares to enter low season.
