The Tolkien Society’s Yulemoot 2015 will take place at The Old Contemptibles pub in Birmingham. Bring along your costumes (not compulsory!) to celebrate the day with food, drink and fantastic company!

About Yulemoot

The Tolkien Society are pleased to present Yulemoot, a gathering of friends in Tolkien’s childhood home of Birmingham just as the festive season gets under way. We’ll be gathering at The Old Contemptibles pub to share fellowship, fun, and beer; we’ve got the room booked from 5pm until late so expect a long evening of festivities! Located in Edmund Street near Snow Hill Station (and 7 minutes’ walk from New Street Station), The Old Contemptibles boasts a classic menu of pub food and real ales sourced from breweries across Britain. There’s no need to register – just turn up! The event is free to attend and open to anyone who loves Tolkien!

The evening will be a simple gathering of friends in a private area of the pub, so come as you feel comfortable, dressed casually, in your best festive party gear, or in costume! There will be a prize going to the best costume, and you will also find other Tolkien-y activities going on throughout the evening. There’s no need to register for Yulemoot, but (if you’re on Facebook) please do add yourself to our Facebook event to let us know you’ll be joining us.

Christmas Market

Before the moot we recommend you take the opportunity to visit the beautiful Frankfurt Christmas Market and Craft Fair, which this year includes an ice-skating rink as well as a massive range of craft and gift stalls, and festive food and drink. If you would like to visit the market with a group of like-minded folk but don’t know the area or are coming up to your first Tolkien Society event, let Maddy know on and we’ll get a meeting point sorted out earlier in the afternoon for anyone who wants it.

Getting There

The Old Contemptibles is located in central Birmingham at 176 Edmund Street, Birmingham, West Midlands, B3 2HB.

It is next to Birmingham Snow Hill train station: leaving via the main exit, turn right and then head down Edmund Street. It is a short walk from both Moor Street and New Street.
