If you could travel back in time, the period from 1660 to 1700 would make one of the most exciting destinations in history...
Thank you very much for having me to the festival and making me feel so welcome.
We thoroughly enjoyed the Literary Festival again this year and eagerly await the next one...Thank you for bringing a great event to Dorchester.
Kate Adie's Desert Island Books was thoroughly enjoyable! I had no idea she was (a) so glamorous and (b) so delightfully funny.
Absolute pleasure, thanks for such an enjoyable night. I think having Tony Robinson there promoting his autobiography was a great idea...
The festival was well organised, we enjoyed the talks we attended and very much hope to attend next year.
Thank you for allowing me to be part of this great event. Well done to both of you, fantastic event.
