The exciting new autumn cultural event for Dulverton and Exmoor in 2022 is the Dulverton Exmoor Literary Festival, and the programmes are now available and ticket booking is now open!
Described as ‘A new Exmoor festival for story-lovers of all ages!”, the event is due to take place in Dulverton over the weekend of 19/20 November.
There will be six hour-long informal talks taking place throughout the day in Dulverton Town Hall on Sunday 20 November, given by bestselling authors and writers on a wide variety of topics (and a free yoga meditation session!); and on the Saturday 19 November there will be children’s creative writing workshops held in Dulverton Library.
Best-selling authors and household names are scheduled to appear, such as William Sitwell, Victoria Henry, Katherine Webb, Claire Barker, Rob Kitson and Alice Thomson. Those who recall the 1970’s national scandal that destroyed the career of Devon politician Jeremy Thorpe, will be fascinated to hear Norman Scott recalling their turbulent relationship as written in his recent memoir An Accidental Icon.
Each talk will include time for audience questions, followed by author book signing in the festival’s in-house popup bookshop provided by Waterstones Barnstaple.
The entire two-day event has been generously sponsored by local businesses Exmoor Character Cottages, Stockham Farm Exmoor, Exmoor News, Hedley Price Funeral Directors, Jeff Pegrum Landscaping, PFG Fabrication, Town Mills B&B, Tozers Solicitors, Ware Construction, Rothwell & Dunworth Books, First Design Print Web, Stags Estate Agents, Osteo & Physio Tiverton, Maitland Walker Solicitors, The Exmoor Feasting Company and The Exclusive Cake Company.
