Thanks so much...it certainly was good fun.

Adam Nicolson
Feedback From 2019 Festival

Paul was an excellent interviewer, and I loved the format. Great audience, acoustics...

Tracy Chevalier
Feedback From 2015 Festival

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

James Le Fanu
Feedback From 2018 Festival

This was an excellent festival, very well run from ordering tickets on. The quality of speaker was outstanding and the venue at Dorford Centre comfortable and well Covid organised. More of the same please.

Richard Mann

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