What's On In St Ives


Cafe Frug - St Ives Arts Club


Its been a busy week in St Ives with crowds of visitors - looking forward to a quieter week.

There's plenty going on over the next week - so I'll highlight a few events, as ever shamelessly plugging the one's that interest me, are staged by my friends or have provided suitable incentives. This week's blag count is a disappointing one free ticket!

St Ives Beer Festival is on at The Guildhall on Saturday (30th) - with more than 50 real ales, ciders and perries. There is live music and games as well. Entry is £3.50 including a souvenir glass.

St Ives School Of Painting are running their usual programme of "walk in" classes - no need to book, just turn up, beginners welcome. Life drawing on Saturday (30th), Monday (1st),and Wednesday (3rd). Personal art practice workshop on Friday (5th). More details on their website.

St Ives Arts Club members exhibition is open every day from 10.00am - 4.00pm. A varied and interesting collection of work in different media.

Theatre company BishBashBosh are staging Surfing Tommies at St Ives Theatre on Monday (1st). Set during, and in the aftermath of the First World War, this poignant drama follows the lives of three members of the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry, on an incredible journey from the mines of Cornwall to the fields of Flanders, and back home again. Doors open 7.30pm. Tickets £7.00 (adult), £6.00 (child). Box Office - call in at St Ives Theatre on The Stennack or call 01736 797007.

My wife Jo McIntosh will be running her knitting club for children "Start Knitting With Jo" at St Ives Library on Tuesday (2nd) at 4.00pm. St Ives Knitting Group will then meet at the library in the evening at 7.00pm - all welcome.

Also on Tuesday (2nd) St Ives Jazz Club are staging Truro College Jazz Funk Band. I'm told that this is one of the highlights of their programme. Entry is £9.00 on the door or £6.00 for members. Truro College students can get in for £3.00. Doors open at 8.00pm.

Cafe Frug - an evening of performance - poetry, music, comedy, film - is on Thursday (4th) at St Ives Arts Club. Doors open at 7.30pm. Entry is £4.00 on the door.

The regular weekly Songwriters Night, hosted by Steve Jones, is at The Western Hotel on Friday (5th) staring at 8.00pm, free entry.

Please let me know of anything else that's on - I'll add it to my St Ives Calendar - which has a more detailed list of stuff.
