EXPERIENCE Barnsley Museum is hosting an online event to find the best Lord of the Rings memorabilia in the country.

The museum is currently hosting the ‘Magic of Middle Earth’ exhibition – and they’re asking people to submit Britain’s best J.R.R Tolkien memorabilia.

The online event will be on Thursday, February 21, between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.

Hosted by collector extraordinaire Matt Fox, he will give his professional opinion on the items shared, including value and relevance to the books and films.

People will be encouraged to share photos and any information they have on their objects with the museum via their social media platforms or by email at barnsleymuseums@barnsley.gov.uk.

Those who take part and see their memorabilia shortlisted will receive a Tolkien-themed gift as a prize.

Coun Robin Franklin, cabinet spokesperson for regeneration and culture, said: “We are delighted at the success of the ‘Magic of Middle earth’ exhibition at Experience Barnsley Museum.

“It has attracted thousands of visitors from across the UK, all visiting Barnsley for this unique look into the world of Tolkien.

“This digital event encourages people from around the world to show their loved memorabilia, and who knows they may be the owner of some valuable objects.”
