After several years being based in the Southgate Arch in Launceston, we have now moved into the Merchant House in the centre of town!
Merchant House is thought to be one of the oldest surviving buildings in Launceston; it sits in a prominent location on the edge of the Square having been a backdrop to events that have happened in the town for nearly 500 years. Grade 2* listed, the building has been on the Historic England and Cornwall Buildings group “Buildings at Risk” register for many many years. Currently being restored, it has slowly revealed stunning fireplaces, plaster ceilings, blocked doorways and substantial oak floorboards. This is truly one of Launceston greatest buildings.
We are thrilled to be using 11a Merchant House as the hub for our creative activities, including our most recent Fun Palace and our weekly creative sessions with writer and artist Sam Horton, Thursdays 10:30 am – 2 pm
Do stop by, take a look at some of Causley’s book, chat to our team and explore the work that we do!
