All about the 2017 Causley (Centenary) Festival: the programme and its events


The 8th Annual Charles Causley Festival will mainly take place from Thursday 1st to Monday 5th June 2017, in and around the town. (A few special activities will happen on dates outside this period.)

Summer 2017 marks 100 years since the birth of Charles Causley on 24th August 1917, in a small cottage by the River Kensey which runs through the St. Thomas area of the town of Launceston in Cornwall. The 8th annual Festival will therefore be an especially significant and joyous ‘centenary’ one.
