The Winter Solstice is upon us in the Shire. Celebrate the longest night and the shortest day with us with a special event. With a warming mulled wine in hand, you can relax by the roaring fire inside the Green Dragon Inn before being moved up to the Party Marquee to enjoy a buffet dinner fit for a Hobbit.

Hobbiton Movie Set will be holding this special four and a half hour event on Saturday 20th June 2020.

Hobbiton is an experience to tantalise the senses, as guests find themselves engulfed in the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of the Shire, at the home of the Hobbits, as featured in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Trilogies. Your guide will escort you through the twelve-acre site recounting fascinating details of how the movie set was created. Throughout the movie set you will see 44 complete Hobbit Holes™, the thatched Millhouse, double arch stone bridge and of course the famous Green Dragon Inn.

With the moon hanging low over the Shire, escape the cool winter air by arriving in to The Green Dragon Inn, with ample time to relax in front of the open fires. Indulge in a few beverages from our Hobbit Southfarthing range, which encompasses two traditional ales, an apple cider and non-alcoholic ginger beer, all handcrafted and exclusive to Hobbiton Movie Set. For this one-off winter celebration there will be specially brewed mulled wine served from our piping hot caldrons.

Hearty Hobbit sized canapes will be served while you explore the masterfully re-created Inn, sip on your mulled wine and listen to the live themed musical entertainer roaming throughout the venue. Follow your guide up to the Party Marquee for a full buffet dinner bursting with traditional Hobbit fare - and, as is the tradition in the Shire, second helpings are encouraged!

To conclude this premium Hobbiton Movie Set experience, after dinner you will re-­join your guide and make your way back through the wandering paths of Hobbiton with path lighting to show the way. This stunning journey under moonlight will travel through the village breathtakingly lit up with Hobbit Hole chimney’s smoking and lanterns glowing against the darkness.

Tickets are limited so get in early and enjoy this special Winter event in the Shire!
