Summer Harvest Festival

Celebrate a bountiful harvest with us at this special four-hour event on Saturday 4 February 2023.

Your journey will begin with a fully guided tour of Hobbiton™ Movie Set where your tour guide will escort you through the twelve-acre site recounting fascinating details of how the movie set was created. To complete the tour, you will arrive into the masterfully recreated Green Dragon™ Inn where you can relax and indulge in a few beverages from our Hobbit™ Southfarthing™ range, which encompasses two traditional ales, an apple cider and non-alcoholic ginger beer, all handcrafted and exclusive to Hobbiton Movie Set.

With a drink in hand, sample the delicious Hobbit delights on offer that includes all things that keeps a Hobbits cheeks plump and as is the tradition in the Shire™ - second helpings are encouraged!

Outside the Inn, immerse yourself in the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of the bustling Marketplace. Sample some tasty morsels from the individually themed stalls bursting with traditional Hobbit fare. Freshly baked artisan breads, fresh produce from the Hobbiton gardens, a Hobbit themed BBQ and harvest stalls with shire-grown vegetables will be on offer.

For those with a hobbit-sized appetite, visit the fully themed Party Marquee where you can sit back and enjoy a seated buffet meal at your leisure. The Marquee is a replica of the tent seen at Bilbo’s eleventy first birthday party. The exterior is beautifully created from yellow painted canvas and the interior is fully themed with colourful bunting and lanterns creating a festival-like atmosphere.

As part of this Summer Harvest experience, guests can make their way back through the wandering paths of Hobbiton at night. The trails will be illuminated to help light the way for this stunning journey under moonlight. Hobbit Hole chimneys will be smoking, the stars will be reflected in the lake and lights from the Hobbit Holes will be glowing against the darkness. Evening tours will depart at the end of the evening from outside The Green Dragon Inn.

Tickets are limited.
