Dorchester Literary Festival

9th - 16th October

Join in a programme of events highlighting the latest books by today's most original authors in a beautiful setting.

Dorchester Literary Festival is an exciting cultural event for a town rich in literary associations. Picturesque Dorchester and the unspoiled countryside and dramatic coastal scenery surrounding it has inspired many of Britain’s best loved writers, including Thomas Hardy, T E Lawrence, William Barnes, Ian McEwan and Tracy Chevalier.

With a programme of events highlighting the latest books by today’s most original authors our new festival warmly welcomes book-lovers to this beautiful setting. The festival’s main events will be held in Duke’s galleries in Brewery Square and various other locations in the town.
