Bridport Literary Festival
Bridport Literary Festival 2013
We again welcome to the 9th Bridport Literary Festival all those who read books and love Literature.
Our programme of events this year is even more interesting and entertaining than ever before and we hope this season of talks will help banish the dark days of November and prove enlightening. An eclectic mix of writers of both fiction and non fiction, together with poets and literary pundits will intrigue, delight and, possibly, infuriate at venues around the town. Audiences have an opportunity to engage with writers who may encourage discussion on all manner of subjects.
We are again very grateful to Nikki and Richard Cooper and their team at The Bull Hotel (www.thebullhotel.co.uk) for their generosity in allowing us to use their glamorous Ballroom and intimate Hayloft Bar for many of our events. We would also like to add our appreciation and thanks to Peter Hitchin and his team at the Electric Palace (www.electricpalace.org.uk) for all their support and input, and Anna Powell and her team at Sladers Yard Gallery and Café (www.sladersyard.co.uk) for hosting several events. Our thanks must also go to Nick Macey and his colleagues at Waterstones for co-ordinating all the book sales and signings and to the team at the Bridport Tourist Information Centre for managing all our ticket sales with such patience and efficiency.
Our main sponsors: Waterstones (www.waterstones.com) and Kitson and Trotman, solicitors (www.kitsonandtrotman.co.uk) continue to encourage and support the Festival; as do all our Sponsors and Donors, especially Venetia Ross Skinner on behalf of the late George Millar and Little Toller Books (www.littletoller.co.uk) on behalf of the late Kenneth Allsop.
We are all passionate about literature and want to share this passion with you.
