    Too long have the gates to Southfarthing been shut, stopping the hobbits in the North of the Shire having free and easy access to those southern lands. Few hobbits now have to chance to enter into the South of the Shire. It is about time the mayor found the key and unlocked the gate!

    One, two, three, four
    Hobbits knocking at the door
    Five, six, seven, eight
    Open up Southfarthing Gate!


    To put pressure on the old Flourdumpling to hand over the keys, a concert is going to be held outside the Southfarthing Gates to draw attention to the situation. Many hobbit bands will be playing to highlight the cause, and generally have a good time either way! And there is sure to be plenty of food and ale in supply too.

    The current schedule, (subject to change!) is as follows:

    7:10 - The Evendim Hillbillies
    7:30 - Pudding Riot
    7:50 - The Brandy Badgers
    8:10 - Brandywine and Biscuits
    8:30 - The Pootlers
    8:50 - Hobbit Heart
    9:10 - The Songburrow Strollers

    ((All times shown are UK time))

    Open the Southfarthing Gate!

    OOC: Given its Shire-related nature, this is a hobbit-preferred event, with hobbit bands playing, although we certainly wouldn't turn away other folk who wanted to turn up to listen to the music and support the cause.

    Also note that the 9th March is when the hobbits across the big water switch to have daylight saving time, so there is only a 4 hours difference between server time and UK time. (So on the 9th March it will be 15:00 hours server time).

    Grand! If so, there will soon be a Flourdumpling-shaped hole in the gate. Given his belly size, there should be ample room fer the rest of us to follow!
