The renowned film news and fan website TheOneRing.net has announced that they will be holding a get-together in London on the eve of the world première of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
The information from their website states:
Going to the World Premiere of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies? Planning to camp out to secure a good spot at the red carpet? Fancy meeting with some fellow fans beforehand?
TORn can help you with that last one! We’re holding a ‘pub moot’ in London on Sunday 30th November, the night before the World Premiere. We’ll be gathering with fellow fans at Waxy O’Connor’s, near Leicester Square. The good folks at Waxy’s are reserving the ‘Cottage Bar’ as a private space for us – our own cosy hobbit hole complete with fireplace! We’ll be there from 6pm to closing.
No need to buy tickets for this event – just show up on the night! Waxy’s have an excellent menu, so you can buy dinner there – and of course their well-stocked bar will be open. This is a simple event – basically just show up to the pub, buy yourself a pint and chat with fellow fans!
We will have a couple of prizes for the best costumes, so you are warmly encouraged to show up in Middle-earth finery!
And you never know who may show up to a TORn party… Hope to see you there – The Cottage Bar at Waxy O’Connor’s, 14-16 Rupert Street, 6pm, Sunday 30th November.
[Please note: because of pub licensing laws, you must be 18 or over to attend this event. Sorry!]
