The possibility of setting up a Tolkien Centre as a means to inform the public about the life and works of Professor Tolkien has long been one of the aims of the Tolkien Society. Until recently it has not been possible to make progress with this project. However, prospects now look rather better, with the possibility of a Tolkien Park, of which a Tolkien Centre would be a part.
On March 27th 1998, there was a meeting between some members of the committee and Mr McCabe, MP for Birmingham Hall Green. Currently there is a report of this meeting and a proposal for a Tolkien Centre on this site. At the Tolkien Society AGM in Birmingham in April 1998 Mr McCabe addressed members of the Tolkien Society; a report of this is also available. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
