A walk around the eastern reaches of Dorchester and Fordington exploring the landscape of Thomas Hardy guided by Dorchester Town Crier Alistair Chisholm and Dr Tony Fincham, author of Hardy's Landscape Revisited
9.30am Sunday 23rd October
Meet at the Town Pump, Dorchester
Very well organised, excellent variety in terms of author and presentation. Favourite was Tony Robinson, but I also really enjoyed Julia Shaw (memory very thought provoking), Richard Dannatt (good solid start to festival) JOHN Wright (local and good humour) Alison Weir (such research and knowledge) and Victoria Hislop (novel in a different style).
Going from strength to strength, well done!
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!
Thank you very much for having me to the festival and making me feel so welcome.
Paul was an excellent interviewer, and I loved the format. Great audience, acoustics...
It was much appreciated that you included Victoria Hislop in this year's festival. As always she was charming and entertaining.
