Top of the list for fans of fantasy is probably one run in association with the Brecon Beacons NPA and is a literary walk discussing J R R Tolkien in the Black Mountains on 30th June. The walk, led by UWIC Lecturer Dr Dimitra Fimi, explores the evolution of Tolkien's mythology by examining how it changed as a result of Tolkien's life story and contemporary cultural and intellectual history. Tolkien was certainly inspired by Wales: he adapted Welsh grammar and phonology to create the languages of some of his fictional peoples and drew on Welsh toponymy for his fantastical place names.
So, if you like Tolkien, you're interested in these themes and need a bit of exercise the walk starts from The Farmer’s Arms, Cwmdu, Powys and tickets are a miserly £2. Visit their website for further information and to downlaod a brochure.
