One Man LOTR’ coming to The Return of the Ring event this Summer
The Tolkien Society is delighted to announce that Charlie Ross will be bringing a touch of comedic glamour to The Return of the Ring this summer with an exclusive performance of his show ‘One Man Lord of the Rings’.
Charlie Ross, also the star of ‘One Man Star Wars Trilogy’, will be bringing his internationally-acclaimed worldwide tour of ‘One Man LOTR’ to The Return of the Ring this August for an exclusive one-off show. The Return of the Ring takes place at Loughborough University, England on 16th-20th August 2012 with Charlie Ross’s ‘One Man LOTR’ taking place on the afternoon of Friday 17th. The Return of the Ring celebrates the forthcoming films and the 75th anniversary of the publication of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, and is the follow-up to Tolkien 2005 that commemorated 50 years of The Lord of the Rings and which was recently described by Ring*Con founder Marcel Bülles as “probably the best Tolkien-related event in history“.
Charlie Ross adds to the already-exciting roster of guests that includes: authors and academics Tom Shippey, Verlyn Flieger, Brian Sibley, Colin Duriez, John Garth and Corey Olsen; artists Ted Nasmith and Jef Murray; directors of Born of Hope and The Hunt for Gollum Kate Madison and Chris Bouchard; and French Middle-earth re-enactment society The Company of the Green Dragon.

Shaun Gunner, Deputy Chairman of The Return of the Ring, said: “I couldn’t be more thrilled! We’ve been working with Charlie for weeks to make sure this happens – he’s so excited about doing this that he’s squeezed us into his busy schedule at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe by flying from Edinburgh and back in the space of a day! I can’t wait to experience his act with the hundreds of other Tolkien fans that will be coming - having Charlie with us proves that The Return of the Ring isn’t just an academic event, but that it is a celebration and a convention in the broadest sense of the term.”
