Dorchester, Dorset: Literary Festival Plans; Durnovaria, Jim Ross

From Dorset Echo - The festival will run from Friday, October 23 to Sunday, October 25 and will celebrate the town's literary history as well as its present.

Sorry to have missed the Hardy Celebration event at Durnovia. Jim Ross is making major contributions to cultural life in Dorset.

"Durnovaria owner Jim Ross said the cultural evening will provide plenty of opportunity for discussion. He said: "There will be discussion about Thomas Hardy and Far From the Madding Crowd, about the differences between the book and the film and the old film and the new film."
Mr Ross said that Durnovaria always try to do something 'a little bit different' on Wednesday nights and the fourth Wednesday of every month is always a time when they celebrate local food, produce or culture. He said: "We are all about local stuff - produce, culture and history and we have an abundance of it so this event is part of celebrating that."
