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.

I don't think you could improve on the experience! Good luck with your plans for 2017 and I wish you all the very best.

John Challis
Feedback From 2016 Festival

A really enjoyable and unusual event. I got a good feeling from it. And am so glad the Festival in general has gone well.

Tracy Chevalier
Feedback From 2016 Festival

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).

Jeanne Holmes
Feedback From 2016 Festival

It is excellent that Dorchester is now on the literary map
