Tolkien Reading Day

    Tolkien Reading Day is held on the 25th of March each year.

    It has been organised by The Tolkien Society since 2003 to encourage fans to celebrate and promote the life and works of J.R.R. Tolkien by reading favourite passages. We particularly encourage schools, museums and libraries to host their own Tolkien Reading Day events.

    Why 25 March?

    The 25th of March is the date of the downfall of the Lord of the Rings (Sauron) and the fall of Barad-dûr. It’s as simple as that!

    As the 25th is obviously a fixed date, we suggest that local events could be held on the weekend prior to then if that’s more convenient.
