Shaftesbury Nature Writing-Themed Book Festival Will Go Ahead

The volunteers planning Shaftesbury’s first nature writing-themed book festival, ‘Reading the Land’ have announced that the event will take place on 20th and 21st March 2022.

The festival programme will offer locals and visitors a chance to hear some of UK’s best-selling wildlife and countryside writers talk about their books and answer questions.

Chairman Rosie King says some event sponsors and partners have already signed up, including the new Folde Dorset nature book shop, which opens on Gold Hill in April.
