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...
I felt truly privileged to be able to enjoy so many events in your excellent programme...quite sumptuous! Had I been able to, I would have booked every event!
I did so enjoy being with you and doing my stuff. I hope to see you again, though I am so busy I don't seem to have time for writing much at present! I am
sure your festival will go from strength to strength….
Thank you for organising the Dorchester Literary Festival. It was our first year...and will certainly attend again. We particularly enjoyed Victoria Hislop (with a good interviewer), Kate Adie and Dr Julia Shaw on Memory - excellent presentation and interesting subject.
It is excellent that Dorchester is now on the literary map
Thank you very much for having me to the festival and making me feel so welcome.
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.
