The historic town of Launceston welcomes you to the 2015 Charles Causley Festival. Visit this beautiful corner of Britain during a June weekend and join us in celebrating the very best in the fields of literature and the performing arts.
The 2014 Festival was the largest to date with a memorable performance by the Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy.
The programme for this year is now being planned. Poet Brian Patten will be joined by a variety of poets, writers, artists and musicians. Please keep your eye on the Updates page for future changes.
‘The Charles Causley Festival is a bright new beacon in the literary landscape – honouring the memory of a wonderful poet, and doing great things for readers and writers.’ Andrew Motion
“How wonderful you have a festival for Charles! I read with him a few times and enjoyed his company. A lovely man. The best Poet Laureate we never had”.
