Each year, the Tolkien Society hosts a special gathering for Tolkien fans and scholars to meet and discuss the works of their favorite author. Called Oxonmoot, this event has become a fixed institution amongst Tolkien enthusiasts since 1974. This year, the gathering has been scheduled for the 21st to the 24th of September. The site for the event is St. Antony’s College in Oxford, England. If you are interested in taking part, follow this link for details regarding the program schedule and registration. Proposals for talks and papers are being accepted!
The program for this year is a work in progress, but it typically includes talks, quizzes, lectures, a silent auction, an art show, workshops, performances, papers, discussions, sales, singing, slideshows, costuming, gaming and celebrating. All of this is supplemented by continual eating, drinking and chatting! The weekend concludes with a visit to Tolkien’s grave on Sunday morning – a beautiful and moving end to the event.
