Dorchester Literary FestivalDorchester Literary Festival 2018

17-22nd October

We are already hard at work on year's festival. We will update the website and our Facebook page and Twitter with the latest news in the new year.

 

Events last approximately one hour and we'll allow enough time in between each one to enable you to go to consecutive events should you wish to do so, although in some cases you will have to change venues. After every event Waterstones will be providing the author's books for you to buy, and there will be the opportunity to meet  authors and have a book signed after each event.

  • All of us in the Hardy Society were very positive about 'our' first night and the subsequent events. I thought Tony's event with Rachel and Dinah worked very well with interesting conversations from the both of the women.

    You and Paul must be very happy with the positive way Dorchester people are continuing to embrace the Festival, and in impressively increasing numbers. Congratulations to both of you.

    Next year's dates are already in our diaries and we are looking forward to meeting up with you soon to discuss our involvement.

  • Absolute pleasure, thanks for such an enjoyable night. I think having Tony Robinson there promoting his autobiography was a great idea...
