Welcome to the Dorchester Literary Festival
The 7th Dorchester Literary Festival successfully took place from 9th - 16th October, 2021.
Around 2000 tickets were sold for the 25 events. Many sold out, partly because of the limited tickets available due to seating restrictions imposed by Covid rules.
We were delighted by the feedback we've already received from many of those who visited the festival. Comments covered the diversity of the speakers,the quality of the talks and the general efficiency and friendliness of the festival as a whole. There was a sense that everyone was delighted to be able to attend live events again, a sentiment that the authors and we certainly shared.
So, a big thank you to everyone who came and supported the festival, and thanks particularly to our sponsors, advertisers and our magnificent and generous band of volunteers.
Now, on to 2022, for which planning is already under way
