We're proud to sponsor the St Ives September Festival

Tregenna Castle Hotel is once again sponsoring the St Ives September Festival. The popular arts festival is to take place from 10th to 24th September and will feature art, music, film, drama, literature, comedy and dance events running throughout the fortnight.

This year’s big musical attractions include performances by Seth Lakeman, Adrian Edmondson with his band the Bad Shepherds and Barbara Dickson with Sean Taylor.

Sheila Barker, General Manager of Tregenna Castle Hotel, is happy to support the event for another year:

“Tregenna Castle Hotel is pleased to support the St Ives September Festival because it is such an important fixture on the town’s calendar. Locals and visitors alike love this celebration of the arts and it remains a real favourite for all. As one of the town’s largest employers, it is especially important for Tregenna to support this community event.”

Festival Committee member Allen Greenall is delighted that Tregenna is once again sponsoring the festival.

“The festival is growing every year and relies on support from local businesses like Tregenna Castle Hotel to make it bigger and better. There is an enormous range of events throughout the fortnight and we’re expecting a record number of visitors this year.”

The opening day will see a carnival style atmosphere throughout the coastal town as dancers, musicians, shanty singers and entertainers perform in the pubs and streets.

There will also be a record breaking attempt in St Ives bay. Two years ago the bay saw the largest collection of luggers since the First World War and the record could well be broken this year.

In addition to performances, the festival features a vast variety of interesting events over the fortnight such as workshops, open studios, exhibitions, walks and talks.

The whole events listing can be found at and there are still tickets available.
