Ian at the Tolkien Society just updated me with the info that this year’s Tolkien weekend will be opened by Simon Tolkien, JRR Tolkien’s Grandson. We also previously reported the incorrect dates: the Tolkien Weekend is on the 17th and 18th of May. To see previous news on this year’s Tolkien Weekend, CLICK HERE.
