Welcome to the Charles Causley Festival :
12 – 16 June 2014

The historic town of Launceston welcomes you to the 2014 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 2013 Festival was a resounding success, with a varied programme supported by continuous sunshine! This year we hope to do even better. The highlight will be the appearance of the Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy.

The programme for this year can be found here. Please keep your eye on the Updates page for future changes.

You can now download the brochure here. Programme 2014
(Please note that Peter London has had to withdraw and that Jonathan Ball will be speaking at that time.)

‘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”.
