St Ives September Festival

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:

  1. This is my favourite time of year, I love taking part!

  2. Thanks Karen - will you be doing any readings ?

  3. Hi Steve, dont know if you remember me from a few weeks back, we have just returned home from another fabulous 2 weeks in St Ives, love the place, we stayed in Mathews Cottage.
    Them 2 weeks have confirmed even more to us just how much we would like to relocate to St Ives and since our return on Saturday i have spent many hours doing job searches and even small businesses for sale.
    Like i said in my last message to you, we want this very much, its just a fantastic place for us to bring our 2 young children up (age 8 and age 16 months).
    Best wishes Steve,
