Feedback From 2016 Festival

I thoroughly enjoyed all six events I attended and would have done many more if my time had allowed. Congratulations to all the people involved for a very well organised event. I am most certainly looking forward to next year's events calendar- the dates are already in my diary.

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.

Feedback From 2017 Festival

I sip my Dorset tea and just wanted to say thanks so much for the invitation to the lit fest - I thoroughly enjoyed it...

Feedback From 2015 Festival

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.
