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.

I very much enjoyed giving my talk and meeting you and all your colleagues. I can think of no way you could have been more accommodating.

Thanks for the invitation to Dorchester- most enjoyable (and an appreciative audience) with the added bonus of meeting Lynne Truss!

I don't think you could improve on the experience! Good luck with your plans for 2017 and I wish you all the very best.

Feedback From 2016 Festival

I thought the event had a really good feel to it - and people couldn't have been friendlier and more welcoming. Good luck with future events.
