The Welsh media have shown great interest in Festival in the Shire! Yesterday’s Western Mail included the article “Tolkien festival to be held in Middle Wales” in which I was quoted, together with the Mark Faith, the man behind the whole Festival.
Also, yesterday evening I was interviewed about Festival in the Shire on the BBC Radio Wales programme Good Evening Wales. I had the opportunity to talk about Tolkien’s Welsh connections and inspiration and share the excitement about the Festival next August.
