I would just like to thank everyone involved for all their hard work in getting the 2021 literary festival organised and delivered. It was wonderful to be able to attend events in person.

This was an excellent festival, very well run from ordering tickets on. The quality of speaker was outstanding and the venue at Dorford Centre comfortable and well Covid organised. More of the same please.
