Travelling to Middle Earth

Many fantasy worlds and characters have loyal followers who are shocked when they meet someone who has not read the book or seen the film where these imaginary lands exist.

One such world is that in The Lord of the Rings. The high-fantasy novel was written by J.R.R Tolkein in 1954 and the film series started attracting fans in 2001 – going to show that a good fantasy story never gets old.

Fans may know all there is to know about the novels and movies, all about the hobbits and the power of the ring, but do they know about the man behind it all?

If you want to know more about the English writer, poet, philologist and university professor, the Nautilos Youth Centre in Nicosia will host an event tonight at 7.30pm dedicated to Tolkien.

You will hear all about the man behind the art during a discussion and watch a presentation about his life. And who knows, maybe this could be the beginning of a Tolkien fan club.

Tolkien Night
A discussion about him life and film screening. August 10. Nautilos Youth Centre, Agrafon 11, Strovolos, Nicosia. 6pm-7.30pm. Free. Tel: 70-088015
