      Great, it sounds like people still want to hear about the Tolkien Society events. Speaking of which, details of not only UK TS events but also things taking place around the world can be found on the TS website - www.tolkiensociety.org/events.

      And, whilst I'm here, details of another event below...


      The Truth about Faeries: from A Midsummer Night's Dream to Lord of the Rings

      An exhibition of artworks by old and new fairy and fantasy artists,
      including Brian Froud, Wendy Froud, Alan Alan Lee, and Patrick Woodroffe.

      On now and open until 13th September 2009

      Southampton City Art Gallery, Civic Centre, Southampton, Hampshire, SO14
      7LP, UK

      Brian Froud perhaps best known for his work on The Dark Crystal and
      Labyrinth is also justly famous for his series of illustrated fairy books.
      Alan Lee has illustrated various editions of works by JRRT and was awarded
      an Oscar for his work on Lord of the Rings.

      The exhibition explores different themes, looking at how artists have
      responded to Shakespeare's faeries and J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan, and
      consists of artworks borrowed from public and private collections to
      create an exciting exhibition that will appeal to a wide audience.


      Away with the Faeries

      Symposium Day, Saturday 5th September
      10.15am - 3.30pm, £26.00 (includes exhibition entrance)


      A symposium in conjunction with the Imaginative Book Illustration Society
      to accompany the exhibition curated by Anne Anderson. The day will explore
      200 years of how Faeries have been imagined by a broad range of artists
      and illustrators. Speakers will include Antiques Roadshow's Rupert Maas
      and Peter Nahum, and Geoffrey Beare of IBIS.

      The Tolkien Society has no formal connection with Southampton City Art
      Gallery but is merely promoting the event as being of interest to Tolkien
