The reviews are in for both our 2015 festival and 2016 festival, navigate below to read them:
Unfortunately the Amanda Craig, Jane Corry panel event has been cancelled...
It is really great to have a Literary Festival in Dorchester and I really appreciate all the hard work that goes into making it happen.
It is excellent that Dorchester is now on the literary map
I'm now back at my desk after Ann Cleeves' mammoth book tour and wanted to send a note to say a huge thank you for hosting such a fantastic event for us. It was a definite highlight out of the 30 events!
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!
William and I had a very interesting and often hilarious time putting (our presentation) together – fortunately we both wanted to be thoroughly prepared, so we refined and refined… we enjoyed ourselves, aided and abetted by the helpfulness of you and yours behind the scenes, the warmth of the audience, and the pleasantness of the setting. Speaking at your festival was an altogether happy experience. I only wish I had managed to organise listening to many of the other talks, which I really wanted to do… Many congratulations to you and all your team, and all wishes for Festival no. 3!
I don't think you could improve on the experience! Good luck with your plans for 2017 and I wish you all the very best.
