    I'm gonna be in St. Ives for my jollies between the 13th and 19th of August and just wondered if there were any band jobs on in that general area that I could come and watch while I'm down there?

    A date/time and location would be super if poss! (Oh yeah, and which band you are in of course if it's not already in your sig!)

    Thank you. ;) :tup

    Last time we were in St Ives in 2001 local bands played on the harbourside on several nights a week.
    I heard St Stythians, Hayle Town and Lanner and District - it's a beautiful setting and very atmospheric.
    - Ian Wilkinson - Kippax (UK Coal) Band - Leeds.

    Cheers, I've been to St Ives a number of times and caught a couple of bands playing on the harbour near the lifeboat house over the last few years, and you're right, it is a lovely setting.

    Of course, I didn't know of any tMPers back then!

    Just wondered if there were any full blown concerts going on anywhere local.

    St Stythians have 2 concerts during your stay in Cornwall, including the St Columb Carnival on the 13th and a concert with international staff band conductor steven cobb on the 14th. we have several cornet players away for these concerts, so it would be fantastic if you could come and play with us. we have players who live in St Ives who could give you a lift.

    pm me or pay a visit to our site if youre interested

    Hi Crawford - I'm in Cornwall at the moment - just missed you! St Brewards band play every Thursday on the Platt at Port Isaac - a lovely spot with nice pub next door. I recommend you look at the Events Diary on IBEW (and print it off like I did :biggrin: ) so you don't miss anything!

    Have a good holiday.
