Sherborne Travel Writing Festival


April 14th - 16th 2023

Curated by Rory MacLean, this will be the first travel literature festival to be held in the UK in recent years.


At its heart is the idea – and the timely theme – of reaching for the horizon. 




Our next event is of course the Travel Writing Festival. That will be followed by the continuation of our full monthly programme of exciting, stimulating and entertaining events, details of which will be announced soon.

Why not join Sherborne Literary Society and travel with us in style?
