Articles about Tolkien events in Moscow and worldwide, a faerie tale adventure full of hopes, smiles and surprises.

A wonderous tale of modern-day encounters with Elves, faeries, and other creatures in our universe.

I travel a lot, and visiting Tolkien events worldwide has become one of my favourite activities. The adventures, the hidden treasure behind secret doors, and the courage to follow the path of awakening are all there in my articles about the places that I visit and people I meet.

Here are always the most recent entries followed by an impressive list of previous articles which might some day become a book or a magazine for those who love and care about Tolkien's legendarium.

A great adventure lies behind, while another one awaits.

1. Oxonmoot, a path through history

Oxonmoot, a path through history, Sept 2019 (published soon)
also: Russian (published soon)

Three days of homely gatherings, and talks and entertainment on the banks of Oxford waters and college grounds with around 100 people coming to honour Tolkien's works and his creations.

Among century old trees and ivy-twined walls is where the 46th Oxonmoot takes place, a gathering of the Tolkiendili known all over the world. It is a quiet city, and a calm one; for the streets are full of wanderers and the hearts full of joy. There are willows at the waters of the canal and the wind in the crowns of trees dancing.

I arrive a couple of days earlier and in the lodge I encounter Beregond, who tells me of the two events I couldn't quite put the names to: the Telerin circle and the Enyalië, of which I thought the first one was a game or a dance and the second one a song. It turns out the circle is about reading books lying in front of readers in the heap in the late evening of the 1st day, deriving from the name Teleri, or Elves, in Tolkien's legendarium; and the second one is the thing (although, like Beregond says, “there will be a song”), a custom of visiting Tolkien's grave from which the Oxonmoot in the Tolkien society arose in the first place1. Having visited many of those events he can say a lot about them, and yet when I ask about differences to the recent Tolkien 2019 he cannot compare for them being too different. (published soon) >>>

Tolkien 2019, on the edge of the faerie, Aug 2019
also: Russian (published soon)

A meeting with the Elves in a short trip to Birmingham, a journey of adventure and joy with wonderful performances, dedicated reports and picturesque surroundings, over 5 days of Tolkien 2019 with surprises, authors, and stories.

Tolkien 2019 is a 5-day celebration of the author and his works that unlike the world renown and yearly Oxonmoot repeats around every 7 years (2005, 2012, 2019).

It encompasses Tolkien's works and their study in an atmosphere of many international communities visiting and relating stories of how they feel about Tolkien's legendarium. Among the events scheduled tightly on the full 5 days programme (4 and a half with a preambula, pre-event on the eve) there is entertainment, learning, communication, amazement, and creative work.

The workshops, Koffee Klatches, reports, performances and meetings all enroll an array of Tolkien lovers. >>>

3. First Tolkien-only museum opens in Moscow

Museum of Tolkien fandom opens in Moscow with amazing trees of Valinor and life-size Ents. We have exclusive coverage of the Telperion and Laurelin sketches and are preparing an interview with key figures in Russian Tolkienology.

The Tolkien museum in Moscow has a unique position compared to other similar establishments abroad: it holds a history of several generations of Russian Tolkiendili, their dreams and their histories, in one place where anyone can visit them during exhibition times or other events held at the venue. More importantly still, this history is still alive.

On April 20, 2019 guests gathered at the building of library No. 154 in Moscow Tsaritsino district, well known for its parks and train lines connecting the city to the Moscow area. Moscow Tolkien museum was officially pronounced open. >>>
