Oxonmoot

    Annual social & academic get-together of The Tolkien Society.

    The largest annual gathering of the Tolkien Society, Oxonmoot brings together around 200 Tolkien fans, scholars, students and Society members from across the world. While it is open both to members of The Tolkien Society and non – members alike, members receive a discount on the cost of registration.

    Since 1991, Oxonmoot has been held in one of the picturesque colleges of the University of Oxford. The college supplies conference rooms, meals and accommodation for the three to four days of the event.

    Activities at Oxonmoot include: talks, quizzes, lectures, artshows, performances, papers, discussions, sales, singing, slideshows, costuming, gaming and celebrating. All of this is supplemented by eating, drinking and chatting. The weekend concludes with a visit to Tolkien’s grave on the Sunday morning.
