St Ives Weekender

The Guild Hall, St Ives is currently undergoing refurbishment. We have no planned events at this venue.

This amazing soul on wax event has gone from strength to strength over the past five years and has been named by soul fans as the best Northern Soul weekend in the South West. The location of the event is just amazing! Situated in the heart of beautiful St Ives in Cornwall, at the very retro style building which is St Ives Guildhall.

St Ives offers it's visitors and holidaymakers seven fabulous beaches to choose from and an idyllic traditional seaside town full of pubs, restaurants and shops offering a wide range of retail products. 


The event consists of one welcome night on Friday and two all-dayers on Saturday and Sunday. Most soul people seem to turn this weekender into a mini holiday and stay for the entire week to discover some of the delights beautiful Cornwall has to offer.  Your Northern Soul DJ line up consists of some of the finest soul spinners and collectors in the UK.
