|St Ives September Festival|
The September Festival is finally here - lots going on today.
I very much enjoyed a pre-festival drink at The Sloop and then The Castle last night, with (among others) Rod Bullimore, Charles Shaar Murray, Martyn Barker and Kelvin Bowers. As Jo put it - Last Of The Summer Wine revisited - but who is Compo ? Also enjoyed chatting to various festival visitors from London, Germany and Switzerland.
No point repeating everything thats happening here - as I've put a full calendar of festival events on my website - broken down into different types of event (live music, theatre etc.) if you use the navigation menu at the top of the page:
