  • 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.

  • 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).
