Review of Dorchester Literary Festival 2016

The review of the Dorchester Literary Festival 2016 is in, you can read the full review on the homepage of our site. We'd love to hear any feedback from any visitors that came along to the 2016 festival.

With over 2500 visitors, the DLF’s second year proved that the Festival is now an important part of Dorchester’s cultural life. Expanded to five days and over 20 events, including several sell-outs, the Festival followed and built upon the pattern of diversity established last year, and we were delighted by the response from visiting authors, the audiences, sponsors, advertisers and supporters.

Kate Adie's Desert Island Books was thoroughly enjoyable! I had no idea she was (a) so glamorous and (b) so delightfully funny.
