Molly Hocking at St Ives September Festival
Molly Hocking – the 2019 winner of ITV’s The Voice – is looking forward to her hometown appearance at the 2020 St Ives September Festival. Molly, who will healdine at the town’s Guildhall on Sunday, September 20, said: “I love St Ives and had wonderful support from people in the town and all over Cornwall on my way to winning The Voice.”

St Ives-born Molly grew up singing, acting and dancing with the award-winning Kidz R Us group at St Ives Theatre. After singing around the West Country for several years, she shot to fame when – mentored by Olly Murs – she won The Voice last year aged just 18. Her debut single I’ll Never Love Again went straight to No1 on the ITunes Chart and led to her performing at British Summertime in London’s Hyde Park, The Roundhouse Camden, The Britannia and the London Palladium before joining Olly Murs on his tour at London’s 02. Molly is also a keen songwriter and her debut album with Polydor has a March 28 release date.
