Dorchester Literary Festival

We are really pleased to be supporting this exciting new cultural event being held in October.(23rd-25th).
It’s Patron is American historical novelist Tracy Chevalier and supporters include crime writer Minette Walters, historian Jason Goodwin, acclaimed film director Julian Fellowes,and Dorset County Museum. The two directors are the very popular antiques expert Paul Atterbury and author Janet Gleeson who we had the pleasure of meeting at the launch this week.

We will be sponsoring two events which we are sure will be extremely popular; Julian Fellowes in conversation with Danny Danziger, and Robert Ryan discussing his latest book with Minette Walters.

Picturesque Dorchester and the unspoiled countryside and dramatic coastal scenery surrounding it has inspired many of Britain’s best loved writers, including Thomas Hardy and T E Lawrence

This new festival will have a programme of events highlighting the latest books by today’s most original authors.

Whether you want to hear about the latest novels, discover more about new biographies, recent books on history, art, politics and the natural world, or attend workshops on writing and publishing your own work, there will be something to delight and inspire you.

The festival’s main events will be held in the grand hall of the County Museum, a quirky Victorian building filled with a fascinating collection of exhibits to enjoy.
