This Year's Events

Feedback

  • 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).

  • Absolute pleasure, thanks for such an enjoyable night. I think having Tony Robinson there promoting his autobiography was a great idea...

  • All of us in the Hardy Society were very positive about 'our' first night and the subsequent events. I thought Tony's event with Rachel and Dinah worked very well with interesting conversations from the both of the women.

    You and Paul must be very happy with the positive way Dorchester people are continuing to embrace the Festival, and in impressively increasing numbers. Congratulations to both of you.

    Next year's dates are already in our diaries and we are looking forward to meeting up with you soon to discuss our involvement.
