Tonight - People's String Foundation

The People's String Foundation
The People's String Foundation


Just announced - a last minute gig at St Ives Guildhall - tonight (Saturday 2nd May 2015) at 8.00 pm - The People's String Foundation - with special guests 3 Daft Monkeys.

'The People's String Foundation combine passionate theatrics with an urban gypsy sound. Mixing artisan flavours with urban/world beats and a band that expands into a 24 piece orchestra, they are fast being recognised as one of the musical heavyweights of the South West.'

This gig was originally scheduled for The Minack Theatre at Porthcurno - but was moved to St Ives and indoors due to the poor weather forecast for tonight.

Tickets are £10.00 and will be available on the door - or you can book online now and have your ticket delivered by text to your mobile:
CRBO - Tickets - The People's String Foundation

Shelter from the storm - licenced bar by Friends Of St Ives Guildhall and a good time guaranteed.
