14th to 16th April 2023 - The Sherborne Travel Writing Festival

These last years have brought dramatic changes to our lives: Brexit, Covid lockdowns, soaring energy costs, climate change and the largest, most brutal war in Europe since 1945. While our horizons have drawn in, travel writers have continued to reach out, rediscovering and reinterpreting the world for a new age.

On the 14th-16th April 2023 weekend, ten of the UK’s finest travel writers will come to Sherborne to transport readers, listeners, armchair and intrepid travellers alike towards the four corners of the globe.

The Sherborne Travel Writing Festival will be the first travel literature festival to be held in the UK in recent years.

At its heart is the idea – and the timely theme – of reaching for the horizon.

To propel the journey, a stellar line-up of top writers will take to the stage at the Powell Theatre, Sherborne School.

Across the weekend Colin Thubron, Fergal Keane, Anthony Sattin, Sara Wheeler, John Gimlette, Sophy Roberts, Justin Marozzi, Philip Marsden, John Blashford-Snell, Demi Anter and Rory will transport people across the world.  On both Saturday and Sunday Festival Ticket Holders will be invited to Tea with the Authors

Also involved are Kashfi’s Children which gifts bilingual books to educate young people, aiming to foster tolerance, positive change and hope.
