UPCOMING EVENTS:

UPDATE ON OUR PROGRAMME

As I am sure you will appreciate we have suspended our programme of events until we have more clarity. Under the current rules imposed for everyone's safety, and to prevent further spreading of the Coronavirus, we cannot realistically hold literary events as we need sufficient numbers in the audience to ensure we can cover all our costs.

We have considered 'virtual' events but we do not feel that we have the technical expertise or capabilities within our organisation to create these and we all have access to major festivals and other national events that are putting together fascinating talks, many from authors who we have not been able to attract to Sherborne in the past.

Unless there is some remarkable developments in the situation, realistically I cannot see us holding further events this year. But we live in hope!
