Looking forward to the Toy Theatre version of Blackbeard the Pirate this Xmas!
I saw Shanty Baba in February last year and it was awesome :P x
we followed you on your lantern ghost story walk evening 15.02.2010. We loved it very much, and with the stories and sound of the sea behind us, giving it that extra chill to the tale. You left us all with a final saying that night, that many people takes roads to avoid their destiny, yet destiny is always on the path you least expect. This couldnt be more true, to the point where is occured us a car crash that night on our way home (nothing serious). but from our group, it has left a few woundering, wether it was destiny, or a curse!. Never the less, we shall return for more of your events. many thanks, and the best of luck with your future groups of spook seekers.Tammie
i been on the shanty baba ghost walk twice. and i have bought the cd the darker side of st ives. i loved the walks in stives. you have got to see it,walk it,and feel it. shanty tells the storys like you are there in that place at that time. ITS OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!! and to be in st ives and here the waves crashing on the rocks leaves you up at night for hours finking of the ghosts of stives
I love the Ghost Walk as there is something very special created by walking around the town by lantern light at night hearing ghostly tales with the waves crashing away in the distance. The best however is the history walk Shanty Baba does that I went on during the September festival, as you see things that you have never noticed before, as well as learning a great deal of history about the town in a fun and entertaining way, with many tales and myths along the way as you'd expect. You even get to go and have a swift half down the pub afterwards if you wish and hear yet more yarns and tales of the various characters that make up the town of St Ives.
Took what turned out to be the very first Comedy tour around the Theme Park.The fog that quickly descended was probably looking for the Ghost Tour but turned up early by mistake.Nevertheless stories of the Arts Club, Pilchards, Hippies, the Red Light district, unrequited love, local double acts, prolific parenting, and the inside skinny on modern art were all highly entertaining.These Tours should come as a boxed set.
Hi Shanty.Went on the 'Ghost Walk' last Tuesday night (13th July) had an awesome time. Meant to go last year but i didn't get the chance, glad i put an evening aside for it this year. Enjoyed the stories round the graveyard and especially the referencing of Raise the Titanic, I always had a hunch it was filmed in Barnoon Cemetery but thanks for confirming it. Just wish I remembered my bucket and spade, apparently a fistful of byzanium fetches quite a pretty penny on the black market!I’ll be looking forward to trying out one of your other walks next year. All the bestNick
Hi ShantyTerrifc ghost tour (22/7/2010), thanks for a good evening - highly recommend as far as we are concerned. By way of feedback, whilst you tales were historically interesting we would have preferred it iff you included imagery of hauntings and ghostly sightings around the town.Now off to find a mirror.....Thanks, Dave.
The lanten walk is one of the highlights of our holiday every year. The CD is a must, great fun listening in the car with the children. You cannot go to St Ives and not go on one of these walks!! A real must!
Hi Shanty, just like to say a huge thank you for your amazing ghost walk. I have been longing to do ono for a while now and was'nt disappointed. My partner and I were equally impressed with the amount of stories you told and how haunting you made them sound. Hoping to do one in Whitby in October but your one has a lot to live up to.
We travelled down to do the ghost lantern walk last night 5.9.10 and we were definately not disappointed. We enjoyed it tremendously and would highly recommend it. Shanty is a wonderful story teller and brings each tale to life. You cannot miss this !!!
Ive been to your ghost walk 3 years in a row and loved it every time!!! :)
Thank you for an absolutely excellent performance at the Western Hotel, you were superb.I'm looking forward to our next visit in July when I shall be booking your ghost tour.
The Ghost Walk was fantastic! From the moment the bell rang for 9pm and a cloaked figure carrying a lantern appeared, it was incredible and I was transorted back in time. The art of the storyteller was well and truely displayed. Will go again (We went aprox 3 years ago)
Hello, thank you for an interesting ghost walk, I enjoyed it very much. Particularly the part when you took us to the grave yard as it made it that little bit creepier. I shall want to do the walk again if I come to St Ives.:)
