‘Exploring Middle-earth’

‘Exploring Middle-earth’

is the theme for the weekend around which events and attractions will be based. For example there will be a mobile ‘Cirith Ungol’ climbing wall for all ages to attempt and visitors are gently encouraged to attend in costumes reflecting the many cultures of Tolkien’s Middle-earth. There will be a costume parade on each day with prizes for the best adult and junior costume. We hope visitors will gently absorb the information on offer about the geography of Tolkien’s Middle-earth, and there will be the usual attractions of music, drama and traditional craftsmanship for fans and new visitors alike to enjoy.

The weekend is an event suitable for fans of Tolkien’s stories, for children and their families and anyone who enjoys a festival with an ‘old-fashioned’ feel about it. Literature, music and drama can be enjoyed as well as plenty of hands-on activities.

The Tolkien Tent has information for fans and those interested in the history of the area in which Tolkien spent his childhood years. The Craft Tent has home made crafts for sale for souvenirs or gifts and the Activity Tent hosts a variety of workshops for all ages. Rangers will be on hand to inform visitors about The Shire Country Park.

Shire Productions present the ‘Middle Earth Weekend’. THIS WEEKEND May 16th – 17th 2009 at Sarehole Recreation Ground, Cole Bank Road, Hall Green, Birmingham. Admission is free. For more information visit www.shireproductions.co.uk
