"The Moss Troopers (David Silk, Jez Hunt and Mica Hind) will present an atmospheric interpretation of the ancient English story of Beowulf, followed by a discussion of the poem that the story is drawn from and the influence it had on Tolkien and his works. Allergy advice: Contains traces of Old English. Produced in a factory handling alliterative verse. And nuts."
This will be a fantastic evening as part of Tolkien Weekend 2016 with Time and Tide Events
