Come raise yer glass for Ronald Dwale again!


Date: Friday September 2
Time: 7:30PM ((UK, 2:30PM servertime))
Location: Ivy Bush inn, Hobbiton, The Shire.

Welcome to the annual Bards Day in the Ivy Bush Inn! A day to remember the writers of the tales, poems and songs we treasure today. Not least those related to one of the finest writers we have seen, master Ronald Dwale.

The Brandy Badgers will perform a selection of songs and poems based on the works of master Dwale. Afterwards, the stage will be open for others who would like to share suitable works for the occasion.

This is the 11th Bards Day! Everyone is welcome to attend, so come join us and raise yer glass to them old bards!

NB This is on a Friday and there will be no Green Dragon Friday in Bywater that day, also due to the Mayor's misbehaviour there.

((OOC details:

J.R.R. Tolkien passed away September 2nd 1973. On this date, every year since 2012, we have paid homage to him with an evening of music and poetry in the Ivy Bush, playing tunes inspired by Tolkien’s works (from the movies or adapted from his writings and poems) and reciting some of Tolkien’s poems.

Players of all sizes and shapes are welcome, but note this is an in-character event. Instead of speaking about Tolkien, the musicians will play songs inspired by Ronald Dwale, Tolkien’s in-game alter ego.

If you have suitable songs or poems to perform during the open stage bit, please keep yer contributions short so there will be room for everyone. If you’d like to sign up in advance, send me a letter. ))
