There is a very special hobbit for sale in Oxford, England.
Despite the adoration the author evokes in the hearts of readers around the world, there is nowhere dedicated to Tolkien’s studies anywhere – a remarkable fact that Hollywood celebrities seek to rectify through a crowdfunding campaign. .
It was in this house that Tolkien dreamed of The Hobbit as a bedtime story for his children. Soon, devoted fans of the late author could meet, discuss and make up their own fantasies.
Cast by actors from the hit Hobbit movies, including Ian McKellen (who played Gandalf) and Martin Freeman (who played Bilbo), along with Annie Lennox and Derek Jacobi, the organizers are envisioning a program of retreats, writing seminars and other cultural events.
If the home is insured for Tolkien fans, it will be renovated so that guests can experience what it would have been like to visit the Oxford professor in 1940. Upstairs, the rooms will reflect the cultures he invented and the garden will be restored to a beauty of the one that inventor Sam Gamgee would be proud of.
The goal is to raise £ 4.5 million ($ 6 million) to buy and transform the Northmoor house, and 9 percent has been donated. on the campaign website, as of December 4.
As with all crowdfunding campaigns, there are benefits and gifts for the ‘Fellowship of Funders’ at various levels, from special certificates mailed for a contribution of $ 25 to personal invitations for events if you can donate more.
