Charles Causley Festival
June 3, 2016 - June 5, 2016
Launceston’s Festival Of Literature and the Arts will take place at venues across the town from 3rd to 5th June 2016
Charles Causley was born in Launceston, Cornwall in 1917 and is acknowledged as one of the very finest poets of the twentieth century. His poetic reputation was worldwide and brought him many awards including The Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry and the Ingersoll/TS Eliot Award. He was made a CBE in 1986 and a Royal Society of Literature ‘Companion of Literature’ in 2000.
The Charles Causley Festival was born to further enhance his reputation and bring his work to the attention of new audiences. We also want to offer the opportunity for audiences, both local and visiting, to hear and meet contemporary poets, writers and artists in intimate surroundings, enabling people of all ages to enjoy words and music in this historic town, the ancient capital of Cornwall.
