Dorchester Literary Festival 2018Welcome to the Dorchester Literary Festival

THE 2019 FESTIVAL IS NOW TAKING SHAPE...

We have been busy talking to publishers and authors and we're thrilled at the wonderfully varied line up that is already confirmed. We've listed some of these below and there's more in the pipeline so do keep in touch. Tickets will go on sale in August, with a special two week early bird opportunity and discount for anyone signed up as a Friend of the DLF so why not join us  as a Friend and make sure you don't miss out on any of the great events this year while you help support our festival. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Thank YOU for hosting us so brilliantly on Sunday. Dad and I had a great time and were both really impressed by the very smooth running of your festival. It was a total pleasure being there with you, Helen, and the team. Congrats to all concerned on a job well done. It was fun to be a part of it.

Kate Adie's Desert Island Books was thoroughly enjoyable! I had no idea she was (a) so glamorous and (b) so delightfully funny.
