To begin the festivities, you will have the chance to experience Middle-earth as you have never seen it before; with a fully guided tour of the Shire™ at dusk. Your guide escorts you through the twelve-acre site recounting fascinating details of how the movie set was created. Throughout the movie set you will see 44 complete Hobbit Holes™, the thatched Millhouse, double arch stone bridge and of course the famous Green Dragon™ Inn.
Your tour will conclude at the masterfully recreated Inn and waiting for you will be a specially brewed eggnog to get you in the Christmas spirit. With an eggnog in hand, relax inside by the two indoor fireplaces or enjoy the warm summer evening and explore the Bywater Beer Garden overlooking the movie set. Inside the Green Dragon Inn be sure to check out the Christmas tree which may even offer the delight of some festive treats and crackers for you to enjoy!
Hearty sized canapes will be passed around as you listen to the famous Marian Burns on her fiddle before being escorted up to the party marquee for a Christmas buffet dinner. As you step inside the fully themed yellow canvas marquee, where the vibrant bunting and colourful lanterns allow you to be immersed in the festive magic of the movies, a buffet dinner full of traditional Hobbit fare will be waiting for you to fill your bottomless bellies, and as is the tradition in the Shire, second helpings are encouraged.
Throughout the evening you can enjoy our exclusive Southfarthing™ range of beers, cider or gingerbeer and Middle-earth™ wine range.
To conclude this premium Hobbiton Movie Set experience, after dinner you will re-join your guide and make your way back through the wandering paths of Hobbiton. The trails will be illuminated, and handheld lanterns will be provided amongst the guests to help light the way. This stunning journey under moonlight will travel through the village breathtakingly lit up with Hobbit Hole chimney’s smoking and lanterns glowing against the darkness.
