What's On In St Ives Cornwall

Royal Cinema - St Ives Cornwall

Apologies for my absence from the blog for a while - I've been enjoying a short break in Torrevieja Spain.

I'll be posting regularly from now on and I thought I'd start with my usual round up of what's on in town over the coming week.

Quiz fans now have a choice of two regular weekly pub quizzes. On Sunday night (25th) there is one at The Queens Hotel, on Monday night (26th) there is one at The Castle Inn. Both start at 8.00pm and run through to around 11.00 pm.

On Tuesday (27th) St Ives Jazz Club are staging Steve Waterman with Ralph Freeman Trio. 'Renowned as one of the top British jazz trumpet players both at home and on the European and international scene.' Entry on the door is £6.00 for members and £9.00 for non-members. Doors open at 8.00pm, music starts at 9.00pm and will finish around 11.00 pm.

On Wednesday (28th) Jo McIntosh is running a workshop for children in St Ives Library - Making Christmas Cards. The cost is £2.00 and it runs from 11.00 am to 1.00 pm. You're advised to book as these workshops are very popular - call in at the library or phone 0300 1234 100. Parents are welcome to stay on if they wish to help out and have fun making their own cards.

On Thursday (29th) there doesn't seem to be live music or anything else on so you might try a night at the movies. The Royal Cinema offers a choice from Michael Jackson This Is It, Fantastic Mr Fox and Up. Times and prices are on their website.

  1. Hasn't the new Terry Gilliam hit town, yet?

    Hope you had a lovely time in Spain, Steve. The weather here's been so mild. It's supposed to reach an unseasonable 20 degrees tomorrow here in London.

    Missing those long walks and sea air.

  2. Hi Anna and thanks.

    Spain was wonderful - 25 degrees and sunny most of the time.

    The new Terry Gilliam isn't here yet but should be in the next couple of weeks. Planning to go and see it - but is it any good ? Reviews have been mixed.

  3. I love the idea of the silent disco. Is it for tone deaf people with two left feet?

  4. Can anyone tell me more about what was happening on Saturday (Halloween?) There was a wonderfully spooky troupe of masked characters walking through the Warren about 8.45pm, playing very sinister music. No explanation, no interaction with passersby, for wierdness it beat all the Americanised halloween rubbish into a cocked (tricorn) hat. Does this happen every year? It made our visit...
