What's On In St Ives Cornwall

Hammered Steel - St Ives Guildhall - Saturday 25th July

St Ives Cornwall Blog returns after a short break!

Apologies to regular readers for the absence of posts over the last week or so - I've been enjoying a break in Spain.

So I'll start with my regular review of what's going on over the next week.

Tonight there's a Caribbean Evening at The Guildhall with St Just based band Hammered Steel.
I've seen them perform before and they're a great young band.
This is also a fundraiser for St Ives Lions so well worth supporting.
A free glass of Caribbean punch with your ticket - dress up if you want.
Tickets: £8.00 (adults), £4.00 (children).
Available from St Ives Tourist Information or on the door.

On Sunday you could check out the new Harry Potter movie - The Half Blood Prince - at The Royal Cinema. We went to see it last week and its the best yet.
Its also on every day throughout the week - 13.45, 17.15, 20.45.
Tickets: £6.00 (adults), £4.00 (children and OAPs).
Do what we did and get tickets in advance to avoid the queue and get the best seats.

On Monday evening there's a Life Drawing Class at St Ives School Of Painting.
Starts at 19.30, no need to book just turn up ten minutes before.
Cost is £7.00.

On Tuesday night St Ives Jazz Club are staging Edgar Macias Quintet -
'A five-piece band that combines different jazz styles and rhythms from funk to South American. Edgar is a fantastic Venezuelan pianist and a great exponent of Latin jazz.'
Doors open at 20.00, music from 21.00.
Tickets on the door: £9.00 / £6.00 (members).

Wednesday is Karaoke Night at The Sheaf Of Wheat with local legend Freddy Zapp.
Starts at 20.30 free entry.

On Thursday night Cafe Frug returns to St Ives Arts Club - hosted by Bob Devereux.
An eclectic mix of music, poetry, prose, film and whatever else people feel like doing.
Entry £4.00 on the door, starts around 20.00.

On Friday night you could explore a little culture with Late At The Tate.
Starts at 19.00 with music food and BBQ on the roof terrace, galleries open until 21.00.
Free entry.

Have a great week in St Ives.
