Things to do this November

Tash Murch

As we welcome November, St Ives becomes the perfect location for a winter retreat, as the beaches and town become quieter St Ives becomes yours to enjoy. Cosy pub lunches are calling whilst stunning winter walks along the coast, hot chocolates on the beach and quality time by the sea are all ready to be enjoyed on the doorstep of your luxury apartment.

It's time to get dressed up in your winter warmers ready for some of the exciting things happening in St Ives this November. Here's a few that we are looking forward to:

Will Keating & John Dowling

After their successful performance at St Ia church during the St Ives September Festival, Will & John are back to perform their Winter Candlelit Concert Tour in St Ives. Join them on Friday 11th November at 7:30pm in a stunning setting. St Ia Church is just a 10-minute stroll from our luxury accommodation so why not enjoy a nice meal along the harbour before a magical evening full of music and fun in a stunning setting?

Remembrance Sunday

Join the Royal British Legion and the church in the remembrance Sunday service and parade on Sunday 13th November. Meeting at The Guildhall, the parade will commence leading to the Memorial for the remembrance service, returning back to The Guildhall for the National Anthem.

Tate St Ives Winter Festival

The Tate will be hosting a weekend full of activities including pop-up talks, making activities, choir performances and film screenings for all ages on the 26th & 27th November. You also have the chance to be one of the first people to see the new Barbara Hepworth: Art and Life exhibition.

If you are staying with us, don't forget you can enjoy free entry to Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Gardens too. Just pop into the Sail Lofts Office during your stay and the team can arrange this for you.

St Ives Shanty Shout Festival

Not to be missed is the St Ives Shanty Shout Festival on the 25th & 26th November. Started in 2016 it brings shanty groups together from all over the UK to perform across various venues around St Ives. Venues are still to be confirmed, but this is guaranteed to be a great night of music, fun and Cornish cheer.

Venture further afield in Cornwall this November, with more things to see and do just a short journey from St Ives and your luxury apartment.

Ice Skating @ The Eden Project

From October 15th, The Eden Project's ice-skating rink is open for both children and adults to enjoy. Whether you are a beginner or a pro, sessions are organised throughout the day to accommodate all levels, with extra toddler sessions to familiarise youngsters on the ice.

Heligan Night Garden - A Magical Winter Experience

Take a stroll through the enchanting Lost Gardens of Heligan, and become immersed in a magical garden trail of glowing lanterns and installations. Finish off a perfect winters evening, with a choose of hot food and the chance to toast marshmallows. There is plenty of opportunity to see the spectacular display, as the trail will be running from 18th November - 2nd January.

Although a 1 hr and 15-minute journey from your luxury accommodation, this is a perfect treat on your journey to St Ives. Alternatively, with only a short drive between the two, how about matching a day trip to the Eden Project followed by an evening at The Lost gardens of Heligan, for a great day out.

We hope to see you soon.
