Talk: The Epic History of The Lord of the Rings

May 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

From £13.82

J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic tales of Middle-earth are a cultural phenomenon, still growing fifty years after his death. Join us to meet the man behind a whole mythology and follow in his footsteps as he creates The Lord of the Rings. We’ll discover the young love, the deep friendships and the tragic sorrows that helped forge his ideas. And we’ll dive into his immense imagination to explore the fundamentals of his world of elves and hobbits, dragons and Dark Lords.

Doors open at 7pm, talk starts at 7.30pm – come down early to grab a bite to eat!
