Loving Literary Festivals in Dorset, Cambridge and Nationwide

We are honoured to have been chosen as the festival charity of the eighth Dorchester Literary Festival which takes place between 15 and 22 October 2022 at various locations around Dorchester.


With over 40 events, the aim of the festival is to provide stimulating talks on a whole range of books by an eclectic mix of authors, in a relaxed and beautiful setting.




Events include royal biographer Hugo Vickers discussing his book on HRH the Duke of Kent, Ben Macintyre who will talk about his new book Colditz and Ray Mears who uses captivating storytelling to recount his travels in the natural world from his book We are Nature.


They are joined by Justine Picardie who will debate the relationship between the visionary designer Christian Dior and his beloved younger sister Catherine following her research for her book Dior, popular writer Minette Walters who will discuss her Desert Island books and Jenny Tough who shares tales about her journey climbing mountain ranges on six continents from her book Solo.
