An exhibition commemorating Tolkien’s time in Staffordshire during the First World War launched at the Museum of Cannock Chase on 7 March 2016. It will tour the county until February 2017 – see below for the tour dates.
The theme of the 47th annual Mythopoeic Conference is inspired by the 60th anniversary of C.S. Lewis’s Till We Have Faces and The Last Battle.
After an amazingly successful Tolkien Weekend in September 2015, the event will return this year. There will be cosplay, live swordplay demonstrations, and stalls from local traders (both inside and outdoors), all to mark Frodo and Bilbo Baggins’ joint birthday.
