Sherborne Literary Society

The Sherborne Literary Society organises various events throughout the year for both members and non-members of the society. Our Words with Wine events usually have a local author talk about their writings over some canapes and a glass of wine. Our Poetry Plus events, also with canapes and wine, have many different themes. For both Words with Wine and Poetry Plus events tickets can be purchased through Winstone's Bookshop at 8 Cheap Street, Sherborne DT9 3PX (01935 816128).

We no longer limit our Festival events to just a few days in Autumn but now invite high profile authors to talk about their very latest books throughout the year. Many books are published in time for the Christmas market, hence the flurry of festivals throughout the land at that time of the year. But books are published throughout the year and we can be very flexible and attract speakers at the time when their books are fresh off the press.

For members of the Society there are huge advantages throughout the year, not least you get a 10% reduction for Festival tickets and a 10% discount on all books purchased from Winstone's Bookshop. You can join the Society through the website (see above).
