September Festival 2018

A two week celebration of music and the arts in St Ives Cornwall | 8 – 22 September 2018

The St Ives 2018 September Festival aims to deliver a diverse programme of cultural events throughout the two weeks, showcasing the best that this unique area of Cornwall has to offer.

Open Studios

For the last 130 years St Ives has hosted Artist Open Studios. Following in this tradition the participating artists will be opening their studios on various days during the Festival. The Festival will be hosting a prize draw for the studios’ visitors. The winner will be given £50 towards one of the Open Studio artist’s works.

Our very own Kirsty Bridgewater, Pick Pretty Paints, Miss T Studio and Oshun Oxtra will be taking part in this year’s St Ives September Festival. The studios will be open from 10am to 5pm on the artists’ selected days. Most open studios will be open on: Wednesday 12th, Saturday 15th, Sunday 16th, Wednesday 19th.

Even if you’re not taking part in the whole festival, our artists or makers will still be open so make sure to come in and say hello.

Next years festival dates are set for 14 – 28 September 2019. Visit the festival website for full details:
