Download the PDF Brochure here [6Mb]Events for this year's festival are now confirmed and on the website.  The brochure is being prepared and will be ready shortly. We'll also post the latest news on our Facebook page and keep Twitter updated with the latest news.

Events last approximately one hour. There will be enough time in between each event  to enable you to attend consecutive events, although in some cases you may  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. To avoid queuing books can be ordered in advance from Waterstones.

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.

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