It’s just 5 days before a host of celebrated authors, writers and speakers descend on the charming moorland town of Dulverton for the second Dulverton Exmoor Literary Festival. Michael Morpurgo, William Sitwell, Janet Ellis, Rachel Johnson, Andrew Lownie, Sarah Turner, Catherine Ostler, Albert Read… to name but a few.
A few tickets remain for some of the ten author talks taking place across the weekend of 18 and 19 November in Dulverton Town Hall. There will be tickets available on the door but online booking is strongly advised to avoid disappointment. Tickets here!
Do you want to learn about the South West’s lost railways; the truth behind Edward VIII and Mrs Simpson’s relationship; how to grow a vineyard in Britain’s climate; how embarking on an adventure is good for your wellbeing…? All of these discussions will be had at the festival, and more.
Creative writing workshops for adults and children are also taking place in Dulverton Library on the Saturday afternoon. An excellent opportunity to begin realising your dream of writing your first book!
Author Kate Lord Brown has once again had the difficult task of judging the many entries for the Festival Children’s Writing Competition and the winner and runners up will be revealed on Sunday – with prizes presented to them by one of the UK’s favourite writers, Michael Morpurgo.
The event has been generously sponsored by local businesses Tozers Solicitors, Amicus Law, Stockham Farm Exmoor, The Exclusive Cake Company, Exmoor Character Cottages, Exmoor News, Wellhayes Vineyard, First Design, Friendship & Sons, Hedley Price, Jeff Pegrum Landscaping, Maitland Walker, Osteo & Physio, Risdon Hosegood, The Sip Shed, Town Mills, Ware Construction, Winsbere House, The Bridge Inn Dulverton, James Pryce Tractors, Masons Kings, Rothwell & Dunworth and Fabula Arts.
