The first report I noticed of the Festival in the Shire was a tweet right after the event, not presently available for linking but it read something like: the larp (live action role playing) was good, pity about the rest. Since then, there have been the Geek Syndicate posts that Trotter cites (scroll down that page for comments), and the following:
Hermione's Hideout (two posts on this blog)
Wicked Woolens (nice merchandise)
Gallery Hill Art (includes photo of the Conference speakers)
There are also three video reports on YouTube, beginning here. There's a passing glimpse of Dimitra Fimi in the first video, and Rene van Rossenberg makes an appearance in the second. These are concerned with the Festival part of the event, not the scholarly Conference.
And Dimitra Fimi has posted photos from the Conference on her Facebook page.
