In a People Magazine exclusive, the campaign to purchase the Tolkien estate has officially launched!
Lord of the Rings stars Sir Ian McKellen and John Rhys-Davies are embarking on another epic adventure.
Rather than crossing Middle Earth to battle the evil forces of Sauron, however, the British actors have joined a fellowship to save 20 Northmoor Road, the Oxford house in which J.R.R. Tolkien wrote The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, in advance of it being put on the market by realtors Breckon & Breckon.
The initiative, called Project Northmoor, starts crowdfunding on December 2 and hopes to raise $6 million to purchase the home and create a literary center in honor of Tolkien. It is also supported by The Hobbit star, Martin Freeman.People.com 12/2/2020
You may notice a familiar face in the campaign video. Yes, that is in fact TheOneRing.net’s very own Quickbeam – Clifford Broadway!
