Europe's biggest Fantasy Convention will be held from the 2nd to the 4th of October 2009. Tolkien and fantasy fans from all over the world will gather in the Maritim Hotel Bonn, Germany for the 8th Ring*Con.
Due to the great success of the first part of the movie trilogy, "Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring" in the year 2001, Marcel Bülles from the "Deutsche Tolkiengesellschaft" and Stefan Servos, owner of the very successful website herr-der-ringe.film.de , had the idea to hold a Convention about this topic to bring “Lord of the Rings” more closer to the fans. The idea included that the participants should see actors on stage, get autographs, hear lectures by Tolkien experts and experience a fantastic weekend with like-minded people.
You can meet your favourite stars from „Lord of the Rings“, „Harry Potter“, „Twilight“ and other Fantasy movies and TV series, and you can ask them questions in the so-called panels (Question and Answer sessions). For Ring*Con 2009 we will present a variety of top-class celebrity guests for all of our interested visitors which will make your Ring*Con weekend one of the memorable highlights of your year:
Bruce Hopkins (Gamling, Lord of the Rings), Craig Parker (Haldir, Lord of the Rings), Lori Dungey (Mrs Bracegirdle, Lord of the Rings), Thomas Robins (Deagol, Lord of the Rings), Robert Pollock (Mordor Orc, Lord of the Rings), and as special guests: Kate Madison (Elgarain, Producer – Born of Hope)
Christopher Dane (Arathorn – Born of Hope)
