The St Ives September Festival began in a back
kitchen in Teetotal Street in September 1977 bringing together the
diverging interests of several arts and music professionals. The
first Festival, which ran from 14th to 24th September 1978 was
already ambitious in its scope and covered folk music, dance, fine
arts, chamber music, poetry, arts & crafts and theatre, and even
featured a very young Nigel Kennedy.
With at least two hundred events the recent
Festival has been more ambitious than ever; reaching out to all ages
and interests, in various venues around the town.
