We hope you’ll enjoy this short film from 2014, when the Charles Causley Trust partnered with Literature Works to coordinate an event at Launceston Town Hall celebrating both the work of Charles Causley and a project which successfully refurbished, restored and regenerated his home, Cyprus Well. The house now provides a base for literature and other arts residencies, as well as other projects and activities by the Trust.
The film contains some images of the interior at the time, and gives an overview of the history of the Trust. It features, amongst others: the then-Director of Literature Works, Tracey Guiry; the poets Dr Alyson Hallett and Kathryn Simmonds (both former holders of residencies at Cyprus Well); the winners of the 2014 Charles Causley Poetry Competition; the musician Jim Causley (a distant relative); former and current Trustees Ron Tamplin, Rita Skinner, David Fryer, Kent Stanton, Vicky Reece-Romain and Malcolm Wright... and even the voice of Charles Causley himself.
Poetry is not a negligible thing …
