Most are open to anybody - we'd be delighted to welcome you to the club. Tickets are available from The Club, St Ives Tourist Information, event organisers and / or on the door. Ticket arrangements vary according to the event - see the individual listings.

Most of our art exhibitions are free - simply come along during opening hours to view. There is usually work for sale - often pieces by St Ives artists that you won't find anywhere else. Prices are reasonable and in a range to suit all budgets.

If applicable we advise you to buy tickets in advance for most events in the theatre - numbers are limited to between 40 and 60 depending on the event.

September Festival - Imago Theatre - Under The Paving Stones
 

In 1968 the anti-Vietnam War movement reached its height, which involved violent clashes between the authorities and the protestors on the streets of cities through-out the world. The characters in this play actively join this struggle.

The political turbulence of the times is reflected by the dramatically changing relationships between them and, for some, a more desperate quest for the beach beneath the paving stones.

September Festival - Film Season - 12 Angry Men
 

The 12 angry men of this film are jurors in a murder case. An 18-year-old boy is accused of stabbing his father to death, if convicted he faces the electric chair. The odds are against him with 11 convinced of his guilt, while one man alone has his doubts.

The court case is only the framework of this film, the greatness lies in the 12 characters who are in a small room with no air-con on one of New York's hottest days, with what seems like a forgone conclusion. Prejudice and bigotry spill forth and tempers flare.

September Festival - Film Season - Sunset Boulevard
 

The cruellest of all Hollywood's self-exposes. Gloria Swanson plays a mesmerising, intense Nora Desmond, a forgotten silent movie star attempting her come-back. She comes into contact with the new Hollywood, represented by William Holden's washed-up, cynical screenwriter Joe Gillis.

Nora has Joe facilitate her screen return by having him edit her crazy script 'Salome', a challenging task that steers him, complacently, towards a gigolo's existence.

September Festival - Film Season - The Ladykillers
 

The Ladykillers is a macabre comedy of dark deeds. A gang of thieves, hiding out disguised as a music quartet in the genteel Edwardian home of the very proper Mrs. Wilberforce, plan to dupe her into picking-up the loot after they rob a security van.

The mismatched gang are; Harry - a huffy teddy-boy, One Round - a punched drunk ex- boxer, Louie - a ruthless unsmiling European, The Major - a phoney army conman, and Professor Marcus, a sinister madman who makes a brilliantly threatening appearance.

September Festival - Film Season - A Taste Of Honey
 

Tony Robinson's kitchen sink drama tells the funny, tragic tale of Jo, a neglected wide-eyed yet worldly teenager seeking affection. Jo is a Manchester girl, sick of school and bored with life. She meets a sailor and becomes pregnant.

To get away from her alcoholic mother she takes up and moves in with Geoffrey a gay man. He looks after her taking over the cooking, cleaning and decorating. This slice-of-life film looks at working class poor, mix-race relationships, teenage pregnancy and homosexuality, most of which were taboo subjects or illegal in the 60s.

September Festival - Film Season - The Misfits
 

This is an underrated gem of a film, both poetic and harsh. Three failed men come together in the Nevada desert to catch wild mustang to be slaughtered for dog food. An ageing cowboy, a bronco-buster and a former war pilot.

Roslyn is a down-onher- luck divorcee who is looking for someone to latch onto. Their values are questioned by Roslyn who is repelled by the cruelty of their calling.
