Dorchester Literary Festival 2018Welcome to the Dorchester Literary Festival

EVENTS FOR THE 2019 FESTIVAL ARE NOW CONFIRMED...

We have been busy talking to publishers and authors and we're thrilled at the wonderfully varied line up that we've confirmed and listed below.

Tickets will go on sale from 26th August, but for Friends of the Festival there's a special two week early bird opportunity starting on 12 August and discounted prices on many events. 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 very much for such a warm welcome and lovely (huge...) audience...Emma made the whole event such an easy pleasure for me.

Feedback From 2018 Festival

I felt truly privileged to be able to enjoy so many events in your excellent programme...quite sumptuous! Had I been able to, I would have booked every event!

Feedback From 2016 Festival

I thoroughly enjoyed all six events I attended and would have done many more if my time had allowed. Congratulations to all the people involved for a very well organised event. I am most certainly looking forward to next year's events calendar- the dates are already in my diary.

Feedback From 2017 Festival

My wife and I really enjoyed our first visit to DLF to hear Henry Bloefeld. Having looked through the programme further we wished we should have chosen more, but at least we shall try to get the books via the Library. Looking forward to seeing next year’s programme.
