Elanor, or The Flemish Fantasy Society (Flemish: Het Vlaams Fantasy Genootschap), is a Tolkien society based in Belgium. Elanor was founded in 1999, at which point it was exclusive a Tolkien-only society, in order to bring a group of committed Tolkien-enthusiasts together over a range of activities.[1]

About

"We have been able to bring together a tight group of people who have fantasy reading and Tolkien's work at heart. By providing a large variety of activites to everyone's taste, anyone can enthusiastically partake, tell stories, discuss and compare witht stories by authors such as Robin Hobb and Terry Goodkind.
Each activity has as its main purpose fun and talking free and easy about our common hobby and this principally at the Tolkien Birthday Toast on January 3, the quiz at the end of February, the Tolkien Reading Day in March and the games nights. The Inkling-evenings on the other hand are meant to discuss Tolkien's literary works in earnest. [...] The member's day in September concludes our year's activities and there our Bards and the group "Namarië" perform each year a fragment from Tolkien's books adapted by ourselves.
