  • All of us in the Hardy Society were very positive about 'our' first night and the subsequent events. I thought Tony's event with Rachel and Dinah worked very well with interesting conversations from the both of the women.

    You and Paul must be very happy with the positive way Dorchester people are continuing to embrace the Festival, and in impressively increasing numbers. Congratulations to both of you.

    Next year's dates are already in our diaries and we are looking forward to meeting up with you soon to discuss our involvement.

  • 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.

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