Yulemoot is the annual seasonal gathering of The Tolkien Society. This year it will take place both online and in-person on Saturday 4 December. The online event will be hosted on Zoom, whereas the in-person event will take place at Bacchus Bar in Birmingham. More details to follow.
Yulemoots have been held by individual smials over the years and since 2015 the Society has hosted a central event for all-comers in Birmingham. Aside from being the city Tolkien grew up in (and thus there are various Blue Plaques on buildings for the keen to track down) members and non-members can visit the City’s large German Christmas Market, or take in the treasures of the Staffordshire Hoard, the largest hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold ever found, and the Pre-Raphaelite works in the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery (the Edwardian tea-room comes highly recommended), or the delights of the many pubs, cafes, and restaurants. Yulemoot was held online in 2020 and the plan is to run separate online and in-person events this year.
