The Fellowship Festival signs exclusive agreement with New Line Cinema New Line Cinema joins The Tolkien Society as official supporters of The Fellowship Festival, UK’s premier The Lord of the Rings convention of the year!

Access All Areas Events Ltd, who are staging The Fellowship Festival running from August 28th-30th 2004 at Alexandra Palace, has received a major boost for the event following the completion of an exclusive agreement with New Line Cinema, the studio behind the critically-acclaimed The Lord of The Rings trilogy “New Line’s support makes us the only official organiser of a Lord of The Rings related event in the UK,” said Louise Henry, CEO of event organisers Access All Areas Events Ltd.

Designed to celebrate the tremendously successful trilogy, the festival will give visitors a chance to partake in an in-depth exploration into Tolkien’s amazing world. The New Line deal follows a previous agreement between Access All Areas Ltd and The Tolkien Society, who have also pledged their support for The Fellowship Festival. “With both New Line and The Tolkien Society working closely with us, we can ensure that The Fellowship Festival provides an unrivalled experience,” comments Louise Henry. “ We’d like to give fans the opportunity to recreate the experience of how these movies were actually made and the chance to meet first hand those who made it possible. Fans of the books and the films, plus those that helped to make the movies, will together immerse themselves in the rich level of detail behind Tolkien’s work, thereby offering everyone an unforgettable bank holiday experience.”

Showcasing the magnificent works of Professor J.R.R Tolkien and Peter Jackson, The Fellowship Festival is expected to see 4,000-5,000 fans per day. Attendees will be treated to theatrical presentations hosted by two of the actors from the films, Craig Parker (Haldir) and Mark Ferguson (Gil-Galad). Presentations will include question and answer sessions with selected members of the cast and crew as well as panel discussions with Tolkien experts.
