Bookings for Oxonmoot 2019, the Tolkien Society’s annual celebration, are now open. Oxonmoot 2019 will take place over the weekend of 13th-15th September 2019, at St Antony’s College, Oxford.

About Oxonmoot

Oxonmoot is an annual event hosted by The Tolkien Society which brings together over 200 Tolkien fans, scholars, students and Society members from across the world. It has been held annually in Oxford since 1974 on a weekend close to Bilbo and Frodo’s birthday (22nd September) and is the key event in the Society’s annual calendar.

Oxonmoot 2019 is being held over three days from the afternoon of Friday 13th September until lunchtime on Sunday 15th September, at St Antony’s College. The Oxonmoot programme includes talks, quizzes, lectures, workshops, performances, papers, discussions, singing, slideshows, costuming, gaming and celebrating. All of this is supplemented by eating, drinking and chatting! The weekend concludes with a visit to Tolkien’s grave on Sunday morning with “Enyalie”, a beautiful and moving end to the event.
