It’s been another vintage year for Bridport Literary Festival, with crowds flocking to seven days of events.

There were huge, sell-out audiences for the 18th annual festival, with a variety of talks on subjects of all kinds.

‘It was a terrific festival,’ said director Tanya Bruce-Lockhart. ‘The BridLit team worked really hard this year and I would like to thank all of them, our speakers, sponsors, venues, helpers and supporters and the lovely audiences we had throughout the week.’

Said Tanya: ‘Unfortunately, the weather was capricious but the week ended in sunshine and it was good to see Bridport bustling with book lovers and book buyers.

‘The Bookshop in South Street kept everyone feasting on literature, and Kitson & Trotman, our main sponsors, as ever, helped to make this year’s festival a success.’
