I did so enjoy being with you and doing my stuff. I hope to see you again, though I am so busy I don't seem to have time for writing much at present! I am
sure your festival will go from strength to strength….
A really enjoyable and unusual event. I got a good feeling from it. And am so glad the Festival in general has gone well.
Going from strength to strength, well done!
We thoroughly enjoyed the Literary Festival again this year and eagerly await the next one...Thank you for bringing a great event to Dorchester.
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.
The festival was well organised, we enjoyed the talks we attended and very much hope to attend next year.
