We're having our AGM a.k.a. Tolkien Day on Saturday September 12th. That, however is in 's-Hertogenbosch, about one hour by train from Amsterdam. Our custom nowadays is to start the AGM at 11 am, have a long lunch break followed by some sort of creative workshop, or quiz, or auction, before resuming the AGM, and afterwards, at about 6.30 or 7 pm we will have dinner.

But I gather you will be occupied by the IBC programme during daytime. As far as I can see it will be no great problem to organise some sort of meeting in Amsterdam (where I live) on Friday evening, or on Sunday. Even Monday (evening) would be a possibility, but I think would not be as well attended as Sunday. With the AGM on Saturday, Friday evening might not be all that attractive either to people living outside Amsterdam.

The British Library is preventing anyone outside the UK from being able to play these files, though you can still see the rest of the page. Please contact me offline if anyone would like to discuss this issue further.


UK Copyright law for Sound Recordings is 50 years from the date of the recording, so no UK copyright exists on these recordings.

It looks like the British Library have entered into a deal with Linguaphone to use all their archive recordings and have only licensed it for the UK and for streaming not download only.

Thanks for posting these, Trotter. You are correct, it is only the first two recordings in your list that have Tolkien speaking on them.

It appears that the British Library have now placed these recordings on their web site as they are out of copyright (1929).

English Conversation: At the Tobacconist's

I thought these were the only two recordings with Tolkien on them but they also list another two recordings (these seem to be in error as Tolkien does not appear to be on either recording). UPDATE The two recordings below are no longer listed as by Tolkien.

I'm coming to Amsterdam next month! I will be attending the IBC show (Sep 10th through 15th) so I will have lots of free evenings, especially on the weekend. I've started reaching out to some of my friends and acquaintances in the area, but I would really like to see if we can get some sort of mini-moot going if at all possible. If you are interested and available somewhere in that timeframe, can you let me know here or offline (webmaster at tolkienguide dot com)? Mithrennaith or others involved with Tolkien Society Unquendor, you doing anything that weekend or want to do anything that weekend? I'd love to see any and all of you, alone or in a group!

I can also bring quite a few books (new or used) with me on the plane, so if you want something from the USA and we can arrange a meet, let me know what you want (no shipping!).
