The Return of the Ring is a large convention hosted by The Tolkien Society after the success of Tolkien 2005. It will be held on 16-20 August 2012 in order to coincide with the 2012 Summer Olympics held in London.

Events

  • Academic streams (two or three in lecture theatres): lectures, panels, visual presentations, etc.
  • Creative stream: hand-on doing things, workshops and the like.
  • Fandom stream: anything that is inspired through fandom.
  • Dealers’ Room: there is a good sized room for the dealers on the ground floor with space for signings.
  • Art Show: we have a nice light, airy room to display art to good advantage.
  • Bar and hospitality facilities: a large bar in a central area on the ground floor and a caffeteria [sic] on the first floor.
  • Child-friendly activities for younger people with their parents (we won’t be providing child minding or a crèche)
  • Tours: we're planning to repeat the popular coach trips to Birmingham and Oxford, and possibly elsewhere too.''
