Thanks!

Aw, c'mon - I only got the year wrong.

Actually, Ted wasn't there; but I got one or two items signed by Alan Lee and John Howe (they'd each contributed to these items) - and then got Ted to sign 'em too, the following month!

And, oh yes! My copy of the 2004 Silm is signed - but only by Ted, I'm afraid!

Love your posts garm! Sounds like it was a great event; you couldn't even remember attending! *chuckle* --but, hold on, Alan & Ted might have been there too! Well, if I'd been to half as many Tolkien events as you, I'd probably forget who all had been there too. Anyway, I look forward to looking into TCG tomorrow; "Hold on!, I actually have one of these signed Silmarillions in my collection now that I think about it..." hehe...

Oh, sorry - ought to have checked before I posted. This Festival took place on 28-30th August 2004. Alan Lee and John Howe were there, as I recall. As fr Royd Tolkien - he may have been there on a different day to the one I was there.

Sorry about the mix-up.

The poster implies this was stuck in the book at the time: "and they placed them in the Simarillion books". This was published in 2004, which would contradict the information garm provided. Nice though...

I've been to one of the Fellowship Festivals - 2003, I think; at the Alexandra Palace in London. I think that was the last one, come to think of it. I don't remember seeing Royd Tolkien there, so I guess the poster must have meant an earlier occassion.

The signatures look good to me, so despite our friend's obvious lack of knowledge about who Royd's grandad was, , I think I feel a little more charitable towards the poster than Trotter may do.

Not a good answer to my question, I am now more suspicious of these items

I have not seen these signed labels before, can you give any more information on the event that you got them from?


The event was the Fellowship Festival in England (I forgot which one of them) and they are pretty unique as they are sorta business cards stuck into the books. It was Royd Tolkien that brought them, he got his granddad Christopher to sign them as he couldnt come. I have completely forgotten who the other autograph belongs to :( I think in all there were only like 10? Maybe 20? The convention (Fellowship Festival) is not done anymore as the one who did the others sorta didnt pay the actors as promised or something like that. There is no official site for it.

One of the book dealers that you see in this film (the first) is Nigel Williams from Cecil Court, in London, off of Charing Cross Road.

I walked past his shop (my favourite shop) yesterday and it is closed down, as appears to be his website, very sad

I was in his bookshop one Saturday and a lady came in with a very small child (infant) and said "Do you have a copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Nigel said Yes, We have a copy and this is the price (as it was a first edition), the woman looked terrified and thought this is the wrong shop for her and left very quickly.

I'd like to state good luck to Nigel Williams for the future.

Please update on Dealers in this film who no longer are able to supply us with the items we need i.e. books?
