St Ives Arts Club - What's On

These include:

  • Art Exhibitions
  • Art Classes
  • Talks
  • Workshops
  • Theatre
  • Live Music
  • Poetry
  • Comedy
  • Cabaret

Some events are open to members only - as indicated in the listings below for each event.

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.

You can bring your own wine and refreshments - we provide the glasses.

Then you can sit back and enjoy the unique intimate atmosphere of our club.

St Ives September Festival - Raise The Roof Exhibition
     

Original and unique sale of work - 8” x 8” / 20mm x 20mm canvasses, which have been donated by members to be sold at a very affordable £40.00 - with all proceeds going to the St Ives Arts Club Building Fund.

Sun 9th - Sat 22nd September 2018
10.00 am - 5.00 pm daily.

Free entry.

Well this is where it all started! - In 1890 the Artists community of St Ives decided that they needed their own Organisation and premises to gather at each weekend to socialise and celebrate their work and culture. It was the “hottest ticket” in town and a much sought after venue - and we like to think that it still is! … and the premises need to be protected for future generations.

This year we had a visit from the Beast from the East who decided to re-arrange the seaward corner of the Roof together with some of the cladding panels, guttering etc. On inspection additional maintenance works were identified resulting in significant repair costs over and above what our Insurers will pay for.

The Trustees, Committee Members & Friends of the Arts Club, decided to launch a number of self - help fundraising schemes and what better way than for our in house Artists to share with you their skills!

We are pleased to announce our original and unique sale of work project - Raise the Roof - of 8” x 8” / 20mm x 20mm canvasses, which have been donated by Members to be sold at a very affordable £40 with all proceeds going to our Building Fund. The Canvasses will be available to view and purchase from 10.00am Saturday 8th September at the St Ives Arts Club.

Please come and support or Fundraising and take away a small masterpiece of original Artwork.

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.
