Hobbiton reopens! Can't Post

We've been at alert level 2 for a little over a week but they delayed reopening until yesterday to make sure they had safety measures in places and to give the place a spruce-up.

From TV3 (hopefully the video plays outside NZ): https://www.newshub.co.nz/...-after-lockdown.html

From Stuff - 'The first group of visitors to tour the Hobbiton Movie Set in Matamata after the Covid-19 shutdown get a warning from guide Luke Edwards before they set off. "If I do cry, ignore me. It's a big deal."'

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

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s 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 beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

*squeeeeeeee!!!!* :D [In reply to] Can't Post

A sign that the world is coming to order! This is such great news! I'm so happy that people will be able to visit Hobbiton, although there obviously won't be international visitors...YET! It will be easier to protect against exposure since 99% of the tour is outside. The bus ride and the Green Dragon would be the challenges, but common sense will fix that :)

Thank you for this. I'd love to come there again someday! *sigh*


We have been there and back again.
