Event Details

DEEPEST DORSET – Exploring “England’s Tuscany”

A NEW book about Dorset explores what make the country special – the landscape, the geology, the food, the history, the literature…… and the people.

DEEPEST DORSET, written and edited by Fanny Charles and Gay Pirrie-Weir, with photographs by Katharine Davies and Philip Hartley, has contributions from well-known Dorset residents including Julian Fellowes, Kate Adie, Italian cookery writer Anna del Conte, photographer Charlie Waite, novelist Tracy Chevalier and poet Paul Hyland.

Picture essays include Lyme Regis Boat Building Academy, food and farming campaigner, Jyoti Fernandes of Fivepenny Farm, St. Giles House and the Shaftesburys, and artist Marzia Colonna, the Italian-born sculptor and collage artist who describes Dorset as “England’s Tuscany”.

DEEPEST DORSET aims to capture some of the voices of Dorset in the 21st century. It is not a travel guide or an exhaustive study of contemporary Dorset, but the authors hope that readers will discover places and people that are new to them – food for thought and the dinner table – stimulating facts and surprises.

Join sculptor and artist Marzia Colonna, musician and oral history expert Tim Laycock, cider-maker and poet James Crowden and journalist Fanny Charles for a delicious Dorset cream tea at The Tithe Barn Symondsbury on Monday 10 October at 2.30 pm when we they will be talking about DEEPEST DORSET.
