Announcing Oxonmoot 2012, Celebrating 75 years of Tolkien's The Hobbit Can't Post

From our friends at the Tolkien Society: The Tolkien Society is pleased to announce that this year's Oxonmoot will take place on 21st-23rd September at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford. This year will be The Tolkien Society's 38th Oxonmoot and will include fellowship, talks and panels, friendly discussion, a quiz, an art exhibition and a party with a raft of creative opportunities! This year's Oxonmoot is particularly special as The Tolkien Society will be holding a celebration in honour of the 75th anniversary of the publication ofThe Hobbit.The Hobbit was first published on the 21st September 1937 and has become one of the world's most popular books: it has been translated into over 50 languages and estimates put sales of The Hobbit at over 100 million worldwide.



Founded in 1969 by Vera Chapman, The Tolkien Society is an educational charity with the aim of promoting the life and works with J.R.R. Tolkien. Tolkien himself supported the organisation and gave it his seal of approval by agreeing to become The Tolkien Society's President. On Tolkien's death the family recommended he stay as President, so, to this day, he remains The Tolkien Society's Honorary President in perpetuo.

Helen Armstrong, Chairman of Oxonmoot, said: "Oxonmoot is timed to coincide with the birthdays of Bilbo and Frodo on the 22nd September, but this year we are especially fortunate that Oxonmoot falls on the 75th anniversary of The Hobbit. We have a little surprise for attendees in honour of this momentous occasion." She added, "Oxonmoot has been going for nearly 40 years and provides an excellent opportunity for hundreds of fans from around the world to come together for a weekend of fun and fellowship in Oxford, a location so important to Tolkien."
