St Ives September Festival

The St Ives September Festival is an annual music and arts festival held every September in venues all around St Ives. The town has a perfect mix of vibrant entertainment, creative workshops and wonderful food and drink whilst still maintaining the relaxing atmosphere that September in St Ives inevitably brings. This year the festival takes place from 10th – 24th September 2016, the perfect way to emerge yourselves in Cornish culture whilst staying in our luxury accommodation.

With around two hundred events taking place over the fortnight, the town sees a diverse mix of bands, events and spontaneous gigs. This small fishing town is taken over with live music, exhibitions, talks, walks, comedy, theatre and cabaret. If you’ve never been to St Ives it’s the perfect time of year to visit. It’s still warm (the sea is at its highest temperature of the year) and the sun is still out but the school holidays are over and the ambience around town is relaxed as locals celebrate the final days of summer.

And St Ives September Festival isn’t just music; there are wonderful pubs joining in, and the Barbara Hepworth Museum, the Tate St Ives (currently closed and due to reopen in spring 2017) and St Ives Arts Club all host exhibitions and workshops. Each year the Festival gets bigger and more exciting with last year being the busiest festival since it began in 1977.

Whether you’re down for the weekend or for a fortnight, it’s well worth the journey. To find a full list of events taking place during the festival head over to the September Festival website.
