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.
