SLS Events

There are 3 different types of events organised and run by the Society:


Festival Events - These are usually talks given by nationally well-known authors about their latest book. Given the demand to hear them we would plan to have these talks in a larger venue.

Words with Wine - These are less formal occasions held in a smaller venue where a local, or less well-established, author talks about their book(s).

Poetry Plus - Again usually held in a smaller, less formal, venue and could include a range of events all obviously linked to the love of poetry.


How to Buy Tickets

You can purchase tickets for our Festival  events easily online through Eventbrite – simply click on the event link in the list below.


With the demise of the Tourist Information Centre we currently have no alternative Sherborne retail outlet for paper Festival tickets. We hope to remedy this soon.


Any remaining tickets will be sold at the door but we highly recommend purchasing them in advance.

For Society events, such as Words with Wine or Poetry Plus, tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance through Winstone's Independent Bookshop at 8 Cheap Street, Sherborne (01935 816128).
