Bilbo’s Birthday Bash 
22 Sep from 5.30pm

Join them on 22 September for a pre-show party in the Watermill gardens and restaurant to celebrate Bilbo Baggins’ eleventy-first birthday.
Welcoming Hobbits and humans alike, tickets to this performance will include a welcome drink, food and plenty of birthday cheer. 

One ring to rule them all, One ring to find them, One ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them…

Venture into the otherworldly depths of Middle-earth with a brand-new intimate production based on the classic trilogy The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien featuring the music of A.R. Rahman (Bombay DreamsSlumdog Millionaire), Värttinä and Tony Award winner and Grammy nominated Christopher Nightingale (Matilda the Musical).

As the Hobbits celebrate Bilbo Baggins’ eleventy-first birthday, he gifts his nephew Frodo his inheritance – including his most precious belonging – a gold ring.

Little does he know that his legacy will confront Frodo with an immense and impossible task; a perilous journey across the darkest realms of Mordor to foil the Dark Lord’s quest for total dominion.  

Bursting out of the theatre and into the Watermill gardens, be immersed in the magical landscape of Tolkien and join an ensemble cast and large-scale puppets on an epic journey celebrating the power of friendship and common goodness to conquer unimaginable evil.
