Thank you for organising the Dorchester Literary Festival. It was our first year...and will certainly attend again. We particularly enjoyed Victoria Hislop (with a good interviewer), Kate Adie and Dr Julia Shaw on Memory - excellent presentation and interesting subject.
Kate Adie's Desert Island Books was thoroughly enjoyable! I had no idea she was (a) so glamorous and (b) so delightfully funny.
The festival was well organised, we enjoyed the talks we attended and very much hope to attend next year.
A really enjoyable and unusual event. I got a good feeling from it. And am so glad the Festival in general has gone well.
...Enjoyable, engaging, enthralling...
It is really great to have a Literary Festival in Dorchester and I really appreciate all the hard work that goes into making it happen.
