Festival Gallery - First Few Days

St Ives September Festival 2011

I've been out enjoying the festival over the last few days, attending various events and viewing some of the many exhibitions.

Along the way I've been taking a few photos and compiling a Festival Gallery on FaceBook.

I'll keep adding to it as the festival progresses.

Take a look - hope you like it. Comments very welcome:

September Festival - Opening Day

St Ives September Festival - Flags

I had a wonderful time on the first day of the September Festival.

Headed along the harbour to Norway Square for Poetry and Music in the Square. Saw performance by (among others) - Bob Devereux, Martyn Barker, Gerald Hull and Supurbia.

Poetry and Music in the Square - Martyn Barker
Took a look at the exhibition at St Ives School Of Painting - also enjoyed seeing the newly refurbished studio which looks superb.

A "couple" of pints of Rattler at The Sloop and great chat in the company of Rod Bullimore, Charles Shaar Murray, Anna Chen and the guys from Superbia. Then on along St Ives Harbour - where I was hoping to see Boats In The Bay - but only spotted one boat !

After that I headed home, then out again to Cafe Art for the opening of their excellent exhibition - Roy Walker:Ten. Pictures of that coming soon.
