Welcome to the Dorchester Literary Festival 2023
14th–21st October 2023

In October, we will be celebrating our ninth Dorchester Literary Festival. The line-up is now taking shape and and we’ve posted details of some of the great events we’ve confirmed below. We aim to invite leading writers and thinkers for you to enjoy in the relaxed and beautiful setting of Dorset’s county town, creating a diverse programme to entertain, inspire and enlighten you. Tickets will go on sale in August.

We look forward to seeing you in October.
