Causley Festival Day 1

Last night was the first of this year's Causley Festival in Launceston.

After an initial welcome event for sponsors and local dignitaries, the opening event was a discussion with Professor James Lovelock in the Town Hall. There was a really good turnout for this and a queue of people wanting to quiz the professor and to have books signed.

As with many of the events, there was a reading of one of Causley's poems to start with and Jane Nancarrow did a great job and will hopefully have another big turnout for her guided poetry walk around town on Saturday.

Two other events last night were a poetry and pints event at the Westgate Inn - which I didn't get to - and the Gumbo Flyers at The Bell - which I did. Oscar and the boys had a good turnout and put in their usual stonking performance.

If you are stuck for something to do this evening, why not come to the literary quiz at the Town Hall.
