Music and Poetry at St Ives September Festival

One of the highlights of the St Ives September Festival is the free lunchtime sessions that take place in Norway Square, which on the face of it is barely big enough to swing a cat!  Notwithstanding its small size, the sessions led by charismatic host Bob Devereux managed to attract a sizeable gathering of people, keen to sit and listen to the artists perform.

Some of the performances came from holiday making visitors to the town, others were there plugging a show taking place later in the week and some were St Ives veterans, such as Bob, who’s storytelling, (part poetry, part song) was particularly entertaining. In fact once you’ve heard ‘The Morris Room’ and ‘Queen of all the Gypsies’ they kind of stick with you!

Until next year here are a few photos from the 2019 sessions in Norway Square, St Ives…

In Pictures: Cornwall Beaches

I’ve not posted anything on the blog for a while but thought it was about time to add something new, so here is a quick post with a few photos from a recent visit to Cornwall.

The beaches are beautiful. Some have a rugged beauty, some have gorgeous sand and gentle lapping waves and others are great spots for capturing a sunset. Here’s a selection of pics from Newquay, St Ives and Godrevy.
