Feedback

This year's festival was absolutely superb.

Sir David Haslam
Feedback From 2019 Festival

Thank you very much for such a warm welcome and lovely (huge...) audience...Emma made the whole event such an easy pleasure for me.

Joanna Trollope
Feedback From 2018 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.

Heather and Bryan Edwards
Feedback From 2017 Festival

I really enjoyed the interview with Sir Tim Waterstone and look forward to seeing who you invite to this year's festival.

Emma Howard
Feedback From 2019 Festival

The event I attended - Brian Patten - was excellent. I thought the format made for a very interesting session: better than just a talk.

My stand out event would have to be Prof Tony Redmond with Kate Adie - could have listened for another hour.

We'd like to say 'thank you' to everyone involved. We were very impressed with the arrangements, the quality of the speakers and the refreshments provided at the hall. We look forward to next year.

I enjoyed my visit to Dorchester tremendously and I was touched by both the enthusiasm of the audience and by the warm generosity of you and your team.
