Does anyone know of any other Hobbit events during Premier week? Can't Post

My girlfriend and I are travelling down from Auckland to Wellington to be there for the Hobbit premier. I was wanting to know what to expect on the premier night. As well as whether there are going to be any special events/signings etc happening because of the Hobbit premier that week. I see TOR costume party is happening, but it is just a bit too expensive for us, (plus we don't own any LOTR costumes!).

Thanks! Cool

We can probably arrange our own gatherings, [In reply to] Can't Post

especially on the rest days of the Red Carpet Tour group so that everyone can come together. Let's put a call out closer to the day to find out who will be in the city that week and organise things from there.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

"Just a bit expensive" [In reply to] Can't Post

Far too expensive IMO.
$125 for nibbles and music plus unspecified slebs.
We extras had our own wrap party at a cost of $25.
As Ataahua says Watch this space closer to the time.

Are you coming to Wellington that week? Excellent! [In reply to] Can't Post

And I agree with what you said. There are not many planned events, so we'll be making our own arrangements for gatherings and activities. I personally can't wait to have some excellent coffee in a cute cafe, and doing that with other TORN folk would be outstanding.

We will start organizing as the dates for the trip get closer.

That's the plan! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll go down the day before the premier and leave the next day, so I'll be in Wellington for two nights. I must book flights and accommodation.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

Cool! [In reply to] Can't Post

I think many of us are arriving around that time, and I think we go to Hobbiton as a large groupCool. Watch this space and we'll make more definite plans for meetups as the time gets closer.

My wife, son and I will be there from Monday the 26th to Friday the 30th. We would love to meet up with visiting fans for coffee, a pint.

More importantly, if anyone is planning on staking out a good spot along the red carpet the night before - I will be out there (as a dutiful husband and father I'm taking the asphalt and leaving the comfy bed to the wife and son) and certainly wouldn't mind some company to pass the time!

I've asked contacted the Embassy and the local i-SITE in Wellington and as of now, no one is aware of any plans to sell grandstand seating along the route and they advised getting out to Courtenay Place early the day before and camping out (provided its ok with local law enforcement)

As they're fine with the occasional person sleeping on the streets [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't think they'll blink an eye at orderly fans with sleeping bags. ;) That's dedication there, athenslotr! I really hope you have good weather for the overnighter.

See you there! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll be in Wellington 26th to 30th and I'd love to get together with other fans. :) Also, if anyone is planning a trip to Hobbiton later in the week, I'd love to join you! I'm planning to go to the Red Carpet Tours' costume party on the 26th, anyone else here coming?

Can't wait [In reply to] Can't Post

My boyfriend and I are going up to Welly from Chch for my 25th bday so we'll be there around the same time, and I would love to meet up with people!!

I'm not sure if we will go to the costume party thing - it's a bit steep for a couple of students travelling on a budget :/

Look at this thread....... [In reply to] Can't Post

Wellington City Council are keeping very silent on planned events, seems like they are in thrall to the men in suits i.e. Warner Bros.

Thanks :) [In reply to] Can't Post

I hope we hear something soon about what's being planned, as there are a lot of other things I want to do while in Welly. It's all so exciting! I think I will be happy so long as I get a chance to hang with other Tolkien geeks in some capacity. It's gonna be great :D

me two! [In reply to] Can't Post

What I mean is, both myself and a friend are coming from Hawaii to be there in Wellington for the premier! We would love to wait with other TORn members! We also have some friends who are going with the Red Carpet Tour group, but I think they will have their own space along the route, as will those who are going with the 'Official' TORn tour group. Me and my friend will be there actually several days before the premier, and won't have access to last minute information on the web. So hopefully plans will materialize before then, so we can meet each other. Can't wait!!
