Finally thanks to Kris we have some news for the Welsh Tolkien fans, who I reckon deserve some credit for speaking one of the languages that sent Tolkien into transports of ecstasy at the mere sound of it.

“Just dropping a line to let you know that Tolkien fever is beginning to build here … the New Theatre in Cardiff, UK is staging The Hobbit, and an excellent production it is too! The company appears to be touring, but I’d recommend anyone who’s a Tolkien fan, or just enjoys a good mythical romp, to get down there ASAP!!”
