Description: Celebrating Tolkien in 2012.
Join us at Loughborough University, Leicestershire just after the 2012 Olympics to renew our fellowship, make new friends, and celebrate the legacy of The Professor. In addition to presentations on all aspects of Tolkien’s creation we will host a dealer’s room and an art exhibit. There will be special events planned for young Hobbits, and the ever-popular tours. The evenings will feature a variety of entertainments, including an Opening Ceremony, a Costume Masquerade, and a Ceilidh. Of course no meeting of Tolkien aficionados is complete without a banquet, and this one will be no exception.
A number of special guests have been invited to join us, and we will let you know as we receive their confirmations. To date we look forward to welcoming noted authors Tom Shippey and Brian Sibley, with more announcements expected soon.
Loughborough University offers comfortable, affordable accommodations, and ease of access via public transportation, minimizing environmental impact. As extra transport is added to the system to support the Olympics, there will be ample and reasonably priced options for visitors from across the globe. Did we mention that Loughborough is known for its warm welcome, and has provided us with a flexible arrangement for function rooms? In fact, there is no reason to delay - plan to join us now by completing the online booking form, or printing and filling in the PDF booking form. Take full advantage NOW while early registration discounts are still in effect.
