Download the PDF Brochure here [6Mb]We have now confirmed the events for this year's festival. We will keep the website,  our Facebook page and 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.

I very much enjoyed the events I came to at the Dorchester  Literary festival. It was all very well organised. The sessions on The Seabird's cry, Bee Quest, and The Otter's Tale were brilliant.

I felt truly privileged to be able to enjoy so many events in your excellent programme...quite sumptuous! Had I been able to, I would have booked every event!
