After a long break (Ive been moving house), Hall of Fire resumes chats this weekend. Whats the topic you ask? Whatever you feel like talking about bring the topic with you!
Thats right, well be doing a bit of a round-robin Q&A discussion (of a very informal nature), chatting about the Middle-earth questions burning a hole in your brain wizards, dwarves, hobbits, elves, rings of power and much more.
Perhaps you want to know what happened to Frodo after leaving the Grey Havens, or speculate on the nature of Tom Bombadil. We might even allow you to ask whether Balrog wings are real or metaphorical.
Just be sure to join us tomorrow Saturday 13 May at 5.30pm EST with your Tolkien questions.
