Ian Mortimer The Time Traveller's Guide to Restoration Britain
If you could travel back in time, the period from 1660 to 1700 would make one of the most exciting destinations in history...
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).
It is excellent that Dorchester is now on the literary map
...Enjoyable, engaging, enthralling...
We thoroughly enjoyed all of our visits and all being well will be there again next year.
Many thanks, and thanks again for a lovely event.
I very much enjoyed giving my talk and meeting you and all your colleagues. I can think of no way you could have been more accommodating.
