Europe Gears Up For Fourth Ring*Con

September 16, 2005 at 8:13 am by leo  - 

Now that all the American ‘Rings’-related conventions have come and gone (ELF, Dragon*Con) it is time to look forward to Europe’s biggest and undoubtedly the best convention around: Ring*Con. The German-based event is scheduled for their fourth installment already, making them the oldest Lord of the Rings-convention out there.

This time around there’ll be some changes though. In previous years the convention has grown so much that it was time to move to a different location, for what orgainsers are claiming will be ‘their biggest and best convention’. Home of Ring*Con 2005 is the Esperanto Hotel in Fulda, but don’t get your hopes op too high; all the rooms are booked.

This years stars include Sean Astin, David Wenham (yes folks, David Wenham, at probably one of his first convention-appearances!), John Noble, Thomas Robbins, Royd Tolkien, John Howe, the inseperable Craig Parker and Mark Ferguson etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. And apart from that the organisers have pulled open a can of lecturers, artists and bands to accompany Master-of-Ceremonies Marc B. Lee in all the acticities that will be held throughout the weekend.

So, if you don’t have any other plans for the weekend of 7 – 9 October be sure to join them and 5.000 other visitors from over 30 countries worldwide in the fun that is Ring*Con! Head over to their website,, for more information, and we’ll see you there!
