Tolkien Week Celebrations 2014

Fellowship Unites for Children’s Literacy

The Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship are a group of passionate fans who work to
share their love of all things Tolkien with the community, while raising funds for
children’s literacy charity The Pyjama Foundation.

The Fellowship are bonded by their love for author J.R.R Tolkien’s collected works,
which include classics such as The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

The Fellowship regularly host presentations, parties and community events. Each
event brings Middle-earth to life, with costumed characters, readings and songs.
This year, to celebrate international Tolkien Week, The Fellowship will be hosting
a range of community events and fund raisers that will ignite the imagination of
the young and old.

The events (detailed below),  including a picnic, barefoot bowling, readings
and a Middle-earth dinner dance,  will raise funds for partner charity, The
Pyjama Foundation, who match volunteers with children in foster care. The
volunteers and foster children spend time together each week, practising reading
and writing skills.

The Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship are available for events. For further information

Tolkien Week September 21-27
The Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship will be celebrating Tolkien Week over a two week period. Our main reason for this decision is that the culmination of Brisbane Festival is on 27th September with River Fire.
