Gosh, emphasis does seem to be drifting away from England as Tolkien's 'national identity' to Wales, as 'his source and inspiration'. I don't think this notion would stand up to much analysis, myself.
But at any rate; it's bloody inconvenient (not to mention expensive) for the vast majority of those of us in the UK who don't happen to live in Wales, to have to schlep over there for all these events.
Spare a thought for us poor downtrodden Angles & Saxons, why don't you?
