From performing arts, live shows, museums and art galleries to festivals, St Ives is the art mecca of the Southwest. After WW II, this tiny fishing village was transformed into a vibrant, influential art colony, the epicentre of the British Modernist movement. The Barbara Hepworth Museum, the Bernard Leach Pottery & Museum and Tate St Ives are the legacy this small town has made on the art world. Discover many other galleries dotted about the town or sign up to a course at the St Ives School of Painting, a Barnoon workshop or join Kidz R Us, one of the best youth theatres in the country.
