Launceston

Famed for being the birthplace of celebrated poet Charles Causley, Launceston is most commonly associated with his literary works, many of which were famously written about this town. His links to Launceston are celebrated each year at the popular Charles Causley Centenary Festival. The annual event features the best from the literature and performing arts scenes, and includes guided town walks, poetry tents, readings, book signings, music performances and workshops.

In addition to its literary roots, Launceston is always well known for its fascinating history and architecture. Launceston Castle and a nearby prison sit at the top of a hill, the latter of which is said to be where George Fox of the Quaker movement was imprisoned.

Launceston is also well known for its support of the local arts. Launceston Town Hall has welcomed many acts across a variety of genres to perform on its stage. Local singer-songwriter (and semi-finalist of Britain’s Got Talent 2016) Josh Curnow has performed his repertoire of pop, rock and country songs here, and much-loved comedian Jethro has entertained the crowds at this venue with his popular show ‘The Bull and Bonkers Tour’.

The Countryman Inn, one of Launceston’s local pubs, also features an all-year-round musical events calendar. Whether you’re into folk, jazz, rock or country, you’re bound to stumble upon a night of lively entertainment at this fantastic venue.

Take a trip to this lively and traditionally Cornish town and immerse yourself in the spellbinding works of its most famous resident.
