The 15-day St Ives September Festival of music and arts – once again backed by a grant from St Ives BID – will take place from September 10 to 24 2022.
Coronavirus restrictions and ongoing uncertainty over when they would be eased – and if they might return! – this meant that the Festival was organised at short notice last year following the enforced cancellation in 2020

Remarkably, only a small handful of events fell by the wayside, with event organisers and performers determined to ensure that “the show must go on.”
The Festival received the thumbs up with just about everyone who provided feedback appreciating the difficulties that had been overcome to make it happen at a time when other festivals were being called off for a second successive year.

Hopefully, all that is now in the past and New Year saw the St Ives committee preparing for a “bigger and better” Festival for 2022.

The St Ives September Festival traditionally provides a vibrant extension to the town’s summer season, attracting a big following of visitors at a time when many other coastal holiday destinations are winding down.

This year’s main attractions include an opening night Guildhall appearance by Geordie folk-rock legends Lindisfarne, who look destined to sell out well in advance of their September 10 appearance.

Following them to The Guildhall will be rhythm and blues band Dr Feelgood, American folk icon Peggy Seeger, singer-songwriter Emily Barker, who wrote and performed the theme to BBC crime drama Wallander, British and American roots music exponents Brooks Williams and Dan Walsh, blues singer Laurence Jones, Cornish folk-rockers The Countrymen and Irish band FOS Brothers.
