International Hobbit day. Sunday 22 September, 2019
To celebrate International Hobbit Day the Hobbiton Movie Set will be holding a special event. and invites you to join them. Come dressed as your favourite character, prizes will be awarded on the night, or come as you are and relax.
After your travel from Auckland, and guided tour of the Movie set as dusk falls, tantalise the senses and immerse in the world of the Hobbits in the special event area created for International Hobbit Day. With a drink in hand wander the marketplace, a bustling vibrant experience. Test the taste buds from individually themed stalls bursting with Hobbit fare including cheeses, specially baked artisan breads, cured meats, smoked fish, and fresh produce from the Hobbiton gardens. Throughout the evening there will be roaming entertainment mingling amongst the guests.
Inside the Green Dragon Inn relax in front of the open fires and indulge in some beverages from the Southfarthing range including traditional ales, apple cider, or non alcoholic ginger beer.
Then its time to feast in the Green Dragon Inn and the Party Marquee from buffet tables full of traditional Hobbit fare and, as is the custom in the Shire, second helpings are encouraged.
To conclude the evening re-join your guide to make your way back through the winding paths of the Shire illuminated by an authentic hand held lantern and other local lighting. The stunning journey under moonlight will travel through the village breathtakingly lit up with Hobbit chimneys smoking and lanterns glowing against the darkness.
Then its time to rejoin your vehicle and relax and reflect as your driver brings you back to Auckland
