Tolkien Day impressions from Germany
Just some quick shots from the Tolkien Day at Pont (city of Geldern) in Germany. I think we may have set up a new world record on Tolkien-centred events with well over 2,000 visitors but let’s wait for confirmation! I can only say it has been a marvellous event with amazing costumes, great talks and fun entertainments. Kids could work their way through Shelob’s lair, pass hobbit entry exams or storm the walls of Minas Tirith (if I remember correctly, I only barely escaped!) Truly wonderful. Will be there again next year.
Watch #Mearth come to live
Yes, there is a new hashtag in town because Middle-earth can’t be used as a hashtag (the hyphen doesn’t work) but we need one.
Pretty glad they did not notice me.
Orcs kidnapping kids. Parents being happy 😉
A labyrinthine garden young hobbits had to get past during their hobbit exams.
Our very own Mithrennaith spreading the good mead.
Bow, arrow and owl. What a hoot!
Tear down those walls!
Amazing tent camps with beautiful details
A lovely village – view from the park to the parish church.
