Beowulf Evening
"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

Beowulf is an Old English epic poem consisting of 3182 alliterative lines. It is the oldest surviving long poem in Old English and is commonly cited as one of the most important works of Old English literature. It was written in England sometime between the 8th and the early 11th century.The author was an anonymous Anglo-Saxon poet, referred to by scholars as the "Beowulf poet".

J.R.R Tolkien translated the work as he was a great fan too (available at HarperCollins Publishing)
