This weekend hosts the Scilly Folk Festival – four days of folk music and fun across the islands, including St Martin’s. On Bank Holiday Monday, the Sevenstones Inn will host an afternoon session from 12 noon. Everyone is invited to bring along his or her instruments and voices to join in.
The event pretty much coincides with Emily and Dom’s first anniversary of the pub re-opening its doors – and what a year they’ve had! They’ve made the pub a fantastic island hub once more, and clearly relish the festival atmosphere. Since their arrival, they’ve hosted (in association with island event company, Torn & Frayed) St Martin’s inaugural film festival last October and the Day Mark Music Festival over the Easter weekend. Both are set to be regular fixtures in the island’s calendar. In July, too, they’ll host the (unsurprisingly) popular cider festival…. barrels of flavours just waiting to be sampled!
St Martin’s is becoming quite a festival isle on Scilly – what with the ever-popular Walk Scilly event every April, and in June, we will welcome a comedy night, part of the Scilly Laughs event. In October, too, we’ll welcome the second Walk Scilly Weekend.
There is, of course, still plenty of opportunity to pass these events by on St Martin’s – to get away from it all and come simply to enjoy the ultimate peace and tranquillity that the island has to offer. But if you’d like to keep in touch with What’s On St Martin’s, take a look at our new island website.
