The Charles Causley Festival has made a huge name for itself in the arts world, bringing people from up and down the county and beyond to Launceston in order to learn, share and create.
With history and heritage, arts and literature and community at the forefront of the weekend-long event each July, the festival appeals to both locals and visitors alike and is always a highly anticipated event in the summer.
People will be pleased to know that tickets for the 2022 Charles Causley Festival of Arts and Literature are now available! Held over the 29th to the 31st July, writers, artists and creatives will be leading a variety of events around Launceston, including workshops, interviews, exhibitions, poetry picnics and tours, as part of this year’s ‘pay-what-you-can’ programme.
Excluding workshops, all Causley Festival events will be ticketed as free, but if you are able to support the work of the Trust, you can make a donation at checkout. This year, the festival will be both in person and digital, so even if you can’t make it in person, you can join the fantastic events online.
The 2022 line-up features the Causley Trust’s 2022 artist in residence Vahni Anthony Capildeo, poets Pascale Petit and Katrina Naomi, Cllr Rob Tremain, writer and academic David Devanny, Annamaria Murphy and Rick Williams, writers Alyson Hallett, Angela France, Annie Fisher, Frances Corkey-Thompson and more.
