The time has come for a celebration of special magnificence... Friday 10 December 2021 marks twenty years since the adventure began on the big screen with the world premiere of the first film, The Fellowship of the Ring in Odeon Leicester Square in London.
The evening will begin following some of the same paths as Frodo and Gandalf did in the first scenes of the film as you journey through the enchanting village on a guided tour. Your guide will escort you through the twelve-acre set recounting fascinating details of how this location was transformed and the movie magic was made here.
Visit Bag End, home of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, and take in the breathtaking vista overlooking the landscape. As you continue down the meandering paths of the Shire™, you’ll arrive into The Green Dragon™ Marketplace – a bustling, vibrant festival-like atmosphere with traditional Hobbit™ fare served from the market stalls as a light supper. Sample a selection of treats from the stalls and make yourself at home in the cosy interiors of The Green Dragon Inn with a stein of famous Hobbit™ Southfarthing™ beverages fresh from the kegs or a glass of Middle-earth wine, and join in on the interactive games.
As the sun goes down, you’ll be invited back up to the Party Field, on the very soil that Bilbo’s eleventy-first birthday took place, where a 13 metre outdoor cinema screen, seating and snacks will be waiting. Sit back, relax and enjoy the theatrical cut of The Fellowship of the Ring.
