The Tolkien Society Yulemoot is held in early December each year. It is an informal gathering of members and non-members in a pub in Tolkien’s childhood home of Birmingham.


Yulemoots have been held by individual smials of The Tolkien Society for decades. Given the long gap between Oxonmoot and Springmoot, it was decided that a Society-wide Yulemoot would be a good chance to gather together just as the Christmas season gets underway at the start of December.
