Local Chapters

Talath Aer, the Oslo chapter, has a number of meetings each year. Mithlond, the Bergen chapter, has been dormant for a number of years.


In 1997 Arthedain hosted the Second Northern Tolkien Festival at the University of Oslo campus in Oslo. Speakers of note were: Kaj André Apeland, Nils Ivar Agøy, Marjorie Burns, Verlyn Flieger, Maria Kuteeva and Daniel Timmons.

In 2009 Arthedain made an attempt to host the Fourth Northern Tolkien Festival in Fredrikstad, Norway. Unfortunately the event was cancelled due to a lack of registrations.
