In-person Pub Quiz
Introduced in 2012 as an opening night icebreaker, Maggie and Mike Percival’s Oxonmoot Pub Quiz has become something of an institution.
This in-person version of the quiz will test a wide range of Tolkien knowledge, but the emphasis is on fun! We will help everyone to find a team to join - an ideal opportunity for everyone to meet up on the first evening of Oxonmoot.

Toasts & Breakout Rooms
Fellowship has always been a key theme of Oxonmoot, and a big part of that is our shared meals, especially the Saturday lunch which is the one occasion when we all come together.
So how to recreate that experience for our Online delegates?
We will join the in person delegates at the start of the Fellowship Dinner and, in the manner of Faramir at Henneth Annûn, begin by facing West in our respective locations. We will follow that with the toasts which are traditional at Tolkien Society dinners. And then we will “seat” you at “tables” with your fellow delegates (assign you to Zoom Meeting breakout rooms) to share whatever meal is appropriate to the time of day where you are – or just to meet and chat with other delegates.
So, bring a drink for the toasts, arrange for the food of your choice, and importantly make sure you know which way is West!

Online Quiz
Introduced in 2012 as an opening night icebreaker, Maggie and Mike Percival’s Oxonmoot Pub Quiz has become something of an institution, which has translated successfully to an online format through the use of Kahoot! The Quiz will cover all aspects of Tolkien knowledge – but the main objective is to have fun!
You’ll need a second device (e.g. a phone) to join the Kahoot! game, but full instructions will be provided on the night.

Telerin Circle
The Telerin Circle is one of the longest running recurring events at Oxonmoot. Hosted by Denis Bridoux, it provides an opportunity for members to read aloud their favourite passages from Tolkien’s works – or just to listen to others, and perhaps discover something they had never encountered before. The Circle is a reflective event – we don’t invite comments on people’s choice of reading, though we do ask readers to explain briefly why they have chosen the specific passage. Bring your favourite passage (maximum 5 minutes reading time please) ready to read – no need to register in advance.

Entertainments & Masquerade
Since the earliest days of Oxonmoot, members have provided entertainment for each other in the form of Songs, Dances and Sketches.
This year, for the first time, we will combine physical performances in Oxford with online presentations from performers across the globe, all of them waiting to share their talents with you all!
At some point during the evening we will run our Costume Masquerade, providing an opportunity for the costumers amongst us to showcase their talents.
Sit back and enjoy (unless, of course, you are performing)!
