Hobbit Premiere Tour: Plans are being laid Can't Post

TORn affilates Red Carpet Tours are hatching plans for a Hobbit tour of New Zealand including a Hobbit Premiere Party in Wellington.

As well as all the locations Red Carpet visits in their classic LOTR tour, this 14-day tour will visit all-new Hobbit locations in Nelson and Golden Bay, as well as meeting the original Ring maker.

In 2003, Red Carpet and TORN combined to organise a party in Wellington for the ROTK premiere. It sold out immediately, and was attended by hundreds of people, including surprise guests Sean Astin and Sir Ian McKellen to name a few.

The atmosphere in Wellington around the premiere was unbelievable - truly an unforgettable experience! And we want to do it again.

At this stage we don't know the exact date of the Wellington premiere, but it's expected to be in late November or early December. We know enough to start preparing NOW!

Start by checking out the shape and content of the tour here. Dates to come.

Woohoo! And a question: [In reply to] Can't Post

Can people who aren't on the Red Carpet Tour buy tickets to the Hobbit premier party?

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.

Why no prices? [In reply to] Can't Post

The cost of the tours isn't readily available.
I assume you have to go through the whole booking process to find out....that's a bit naughty.
Or am I missing something?

Cost [In reply to] Can't Post

If you send in an expression of interest, they will let you know the cost. To reserve a place, you then need to send a deposit ASAP. Smile

It sounds fantastic ... the tour, that is. I didn't realise they were also organising a party.

There are prices in the link in the op [In reply to] Can't Post

and the planned itinerary as well.

Having done most of the sites previously I recommend the schedule, so much so that I have paid a deposit for the tourSmile. I was already planning a trip to NZ to coincide with the premiere and then to revisit the Northern part of the South Island. The tour schedule does this and also includes other sites that I am more than happy to revisit.

TORN/Red Carpet premier party [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi there. I have asked this question myself, since I will not be on a Red Carpet tour, and yes, the reply I received from TORN is that the tickets will be available for purchase by anyone. Great news!!
