Although the main part of the 2017 Charles Causley Festival has now passed, there are still some things to see and do over the months ahead!
After the Causley Fun Day on the green at Launceston Castle marking the actual ‘100th birthday’ date of 24th August, there are several more events to note for the centenary year of 2017:
* Firstly, the revised version of the Jane Darke/Andrew Tebbs documentary film about Charles, re-titled ‘Cornwall’s Native Poet’ was broadcast on BBC4 on Sunday 1st October. It remains available to view on the BBC website, and via the ‘red button I-Player system until 31st October. Click HERE for the relevant website page.
* A special event in London celebrates the Causley centenary with an evening of poetry and music, discussions and more at The Troubadour Club, on Monday 3oth October. Click HERE for more details.
* And Dr. Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury, will give a talk about his interest in and love for Causley’s poetry at Launceston Town Hall on Saturday 9th December. For further information, click HERE .
And last, but by no means least, more of the photos and videos of the Festival’s events and people will be appearing on the website over the next few months. There’s a brief ‘taster’ page of those which you can see right now, if you click HERE .
