Last week was our annual Tolkien Birthday Toast, celebrating the T125th birthday – or “twelfty-fifth” – of the late Professor J.R.R. Tolkien CBE. This is how the world celebrated.
The event was covered extensively in the media. Not only was there a mention on BBC Radio and we were covered in Time magazine, but also fans all over the world took to social media to share their photos of the event.
Today is J.R.R. Tolkien's twelfthty-fifth birthday!
