Bring the kids for hours of FREE fun activities in Launceston this Saturday

Do you fancy taking the kids for a fun day out, with minimal costs?

Well, don’t we have the answer for you! This Saturday, a number of fantastic activities will be taking place in Launceston as part of the 2021 Causley Festival of Arts & Literature, which starts tomorrow (Friday).

Not only are there dozens of activities and workshops for your little ones to choose from running throughout the day, but nearly all of them are free to attend, meaning you and your kids can have a fun, low-cost day out!

Come into Launceston for a fully packed day out with the children for FREE! And if you spend £5 for a child and £10 for adults, you can even see Miracle Theatre in the castle grounds.

A ‘People’s Herbarium Walk’ will be taking place at Lawrence House Museum, led by Karen Howse, where you will be able to walk, search for local plants and contribute to a modern day version of Launceston’s 18th century plant herbarium collected by William Wise.

There is lots to do in the town hall! From 10am to 4pm, let the kids run wild with a bee stamp making clay workshop with Barbi Ackroyd, put their imaginations to the test with a Lego challenge, explore local history with the English Heritage creative castle activity, or make junk instruments with Launceston Junk Band.

Also in the town hall, catch the Poetry Postie from 11.30am to 12.30pm, join the Launceston Junk Band between 12.30pm to 1pm and later at 2pm to 2.30pm, watch as Scratchworks Theatre creates some fantastic performance at 1pm, and at 1.30pm you can meet town crier Rob Tremain before he takes an audience around the town for a guided tour.

From 2.30pm to 3.15pm, catch the Scratchworks Grimm Sisters in the Parade Ground, behind St Mary Magdalene Church, who will be throwing a whole load of comedy, singing and live music into the mix.

Miracle Theatre will be in the castle grounds from 5pm showing ‘Star Crazy’, a comedy set in 1957 where the eccentric Stanley hopes to make contact with other life forms while his neighbour Gwen thinks he should be exploring things much closer to home. This is the only paid-for event for children on Saturday, with tickets being £5 for children and £10 for adults.

Treat your little ones to a fantastic day out this Saturday!
