Oxonmoot is an annual event hosted by The Tolkien Society which brings together Tolkien fans, scholars, students and Society members from across the world. Oxonmoot 2021 is being held over the first weekend of September 2021.
The continuing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic means that our plans for Oxonmoot 2021 are necessarily fluid.
We will certainly be holding an online event, and we very much hope that this will be integrated with a physical gathering in Oxford. We are currently planning to make a decision on what we can run in early May, and we will open bookings in mid May.
In the event that we can host a physical event, Oxonmoot will run for four days from the afternoon of Thursday 2nd September until early afternoon of Sunday 5th September, at St Anne’s College, Woodstock Road, Oxford, with the online element launching in the evening of 2nd September.
Should we only be able to host an online event, that will run for three days from Friday 3rd September to Sunday 5th September.
Further information will be published here as soon as it is available.
In the meantime, please start thinking about how you might want to contribute to Oxonmoot, for example:
- Present a talk or paper
- Host an interactive activity
- Perform an entertainment
- Present a costume in the masquerade
- Submit artwork to the art show
Options for all of these will be available online or at the physical event, so don’t worry if you don’t think you’ll be able to get to Oxford – you’ll still be able to take part.
To discuss any ideas you might have for our programme, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
