Tolkien Day impressions from Germany

Escaping the Nazgûl
Escaping the Nazgûl

Just some quick shots from the Tolkien Day at Pont (city of Geldern) in Germany. I think we may have set up a new world record on Tolkien-centred events with well over 2,000 visitors but let’s wait for confirmation! I can only say it has been a marvellous event with amazing costumes, great talks and fun entertainments. Kids could work their way through Shelob’s lair, pass hobbit entry exams or storm the walls of Minas Tirith (if I remember correctly, I only barely escaped!) Truly wonderful. Will be there again next year.

Watch #Mearth come to live

Yes, there is a new hashtag in town because Middle-earth can’t  be used as a hashtag (the hyphen doesn’t work) but we need one.

 


Pretty glad they did not notice me.

 


Orcs kidnapping kids. Parents being happy 😉

 


A labyrinthine garden young hobbits had to get past during their hobbit exams.

 


Our very own Mithrennaith spreading the good mead.

 


Bow, arrow and owl. What a hoot!

 


Tear down those walls!

 


Amazing tent camps with beautiful details

 


A lovely village – view from the park to the parish church.
