There's the Tolkien Society - [In reply to] Can't Post

http://www.tolkiensociety.co.uk/

and the Mythopoeic Society:

http://www.mythsoc.org/

I've been a member of the Tolkien Society for many years. There are local groups called 'smials' where members meet up regularly to discuss all matters Tolkien. I met many of my closest friends through the Society,

We have three major events every year; the AGM in April; and the seminar in July (this year's is to be held next weekend, in Carlisle - the theme is Tolkien's landscapes). And in September there is Oxonmoot, which is our annual get-together over a weekend, spent at an Oxford college. There are papers, and dressing-up, for those who want it; and much fellowship. There used to be 'hacking' too, until around 1997 (that is, re-enactions). Unfortunately, these can no longer take place 'cos the costs of insurance is too high these days.

There are various Tolkien Societies around the world. I recommend getting in touch; they're great fun.

Smile
