Next Sunday (26 October) morning, BBC Radio 4’s Sunday Worship programme will broadcast a service live from Merton College Chapel, Oxford which will commemorate “the life and spirituality” of Tolkien in the context of his experience of the First World War.

Today marks 100 years since Middle-earth first came into being. On 24 September 1914, Tolkien wrote the poem ‘The Voyage of Éarendel the Evening Star’. It was, as Christopher Tolkien described it, “the first of the mythology”.

Wolverhampton Art Gallery, as part of the Black Country Echoes Festival, is hosting an exhibition this from September to January called the “Making of Mordor”. The displays include items from the Tolkien Society archives and Tolkien Society members.

The Hungarian Tolkien Society is hosting its ninth Tolkien Mailing Competition. This year, however, the “Quendi” category is open to Tolkien fans from around the world to win the honour of being crowned the winner of the HTS’s competition.

A group of Tolkien Society members triumphed at last weekend’s Worldcon Masquerade, winning Best Workmanship, Best Presentation and Best In Show in the Masters’ category. Congratulations! The entry, entitled Aratalindalë, was inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion.

The Tolkien Society’s 2014 Seminar will be on Thursday 14th August, and be part of the 2014 World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon), which is being held at the ExCeL London exhibition centre. The Tolkien Society’s keynote speaker will be David Brawn, head of Tolkien publishing at HarperCollins.
