Oxonmoot

(or, "Let's meet in Oxford in September")

Oxonmoot is held in Oxford in September every year, usually on the weekend closest to the 22nd of September, Frodo and Bilbo's birthday. For many years the event has been held at a picturesque Oxford college, some closely associated with Tolkien or other literary figures. There are usually around 100 to 200 people attending.

The moot centres on talks and panels hosted by people researching Tolkien's works and life, and there is usually a quiz, an art show, an evening get-together with a masquerade, a remembrance visit to Tolkien's grave in north Oxford, and last, but not least, the chance to spend a weekend in the company of other people who love J.R.R. Tolkien's work.

Oxonmoot 2013 will take place at Lady Margaret Hall from 20th September 2013 to 21st September 2013.
