The Magic of Middle Earth

About

Journey beyond the books to discover the artistic legacy of J.R.R. Tolkien's incredible fantasy world.

This major new exhibition celebrates the fantasy world brought to life by Tolkien, and the generations of writers, artists, musicians, film makers, environmentalists and game designers it has influenced.

Discover a magical treasure trove of over 200 rare objects and artworks from across the decades including stunning paintings of Dragons, Ents and Elves, dramatic models and dioramas including the Battle Of Helms Deep, and Middle-earth-inspired video games and Lego sets.

Regarded as the "father" of modern fantasy literature, Tolkien has inspired creative minds of all types, from artists, musicians and film makers to environmentalists and game designers. Tolkien himself took inspiration from Worcestershire's landscape and was a regular visitor to the Malvern Hills in the 1930s.

'The Magic of Middle Earth' provides fun for all ages, from little halflings to wizened wizards!
