Cornish Seal Sanctuary, all month

If the weathers been stormy or wild then they will have more pups, but visiting at this time of year means you’re more likely to see the sanctuary at full capacity.

Cornish Ukulele Festival, 5th

St Ives Feast Day, 6th

An annual tradition that falls on the first Monday after the 3rd February. The St Ives Feast Day and Hurling of the Silver Ball draws hundreds of people to watch. The day begins with the Mayors procession and a blessing at St Ia Well near Porthmeor Beach, before the hurling of the little silver ball. It is a centuries old form of rugby and really has to be seen to be believed. The person who is able to return the ball back to the mayor at midday receives a silver coin! It gets very competitive…
 
In the afternoon school children line the streets waiting for pennies to be thrown off the balcony by the Guildhall. All rather strange, but one of those Cornish traditions that must be embraced. The best place to watch for the silver ball is on the harbour beach, but we’re sure you’ll spot the crowds chasing…
