It was a lovely event...I'm sure it's going to be one of those festivals that everyone wants to appear at.

Delightful time at the Dorchester Lit Fest. Old friends, new friends and brilliant writers. If invited, writers, do go...

Audience Feedback

We really enjoyed the talks we attended...and look forward to next year's event... Kate Adie was brilliant.

I went to talks by Tracy Chevalier and Kate Adie. They were both excellent and normally I hate being talked at... Well done!

... Enjoyable, engaging, enthralling ...

It is excellent that Dorchester is now on the literary map.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening with Julian Fellowes and have nothing but praise for the whole event.

The three authors I listened to were very interesting and entertaining; I bought a book from each and had it signed ...

Thank you for the best evening ever.

The speakers were of an exceptionally high calibre... thank you for such a lovely weekend.

Fantastic talk on the role of women in WW1 by Kate Adie.

Fab Desert Island Books event with Tracy Chevalier at Dorchester Lit Fest today. We’re now all choosing our own. Pressure on!

Hugely funny talk by Dom Joly as first event.
