SLS Events

Most of our events, held throughout the year, are 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. Scroll down to see the events planned for 2021 and how to purchase tickets through Eventbrite.

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.


Words with Wine Event

Thursday 18th November

Raleigh Hall, Digby Road, Sherborne, DT9 3NL

Tim Biles

Tim Biles will talk about his latest book It’s the Journey, which is a collection of vivid encounters covering experiences of life in lands dominated by the Moslems of Pakistan and Sudan, the Hindus of India, the Buddhists of Sri Lanka and the Jews of Israel/Palestine.

Tickets available from Winstone's Bookshop, 8 Cheap Street, Sherborne or on the door. Price £5, which should include a glass of wine and canapés (Covid rules permitting!).

Doors open at 7 pm for 7.30 pm start
