    "We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!"- Bilbo Baggins

    "You're a very fine person, Mr. Baggins, and I'm quite fond of you. But you are really just a little fellow, in a wide world after all" - Gandalf

    You would be amazed to learn how much preparation goes into a hobbit birthday party, especially when the 'birthday boy' is called Bilbo Baggins - Although it is still a few weeks away, food, ale and of course, fireworks , are been delivered daily to Bag End in preparation for ' an evening to remember!' Of course, we are still hard at work with music practices and moreto get ready to perform There And Back Again -The Musical 2014 . The cast has been rounded up, costumes take out of wardrobes, instruments tuned...etc etc.

    Make sure you save the date, Sunday, September 21st ...we wil welcome you all in the gardens of Bag End to transport you on an incredible adventure. So it is time to share the second teaser trailer for There And Back Again and the words of one of the songs we will perform - the song is called The Thrush And The Arrow and tells the story of how Bard the Bowman kills the great dragon Smaug that is attacking Lake Town , enjoy!

    The End Of The Golden by Once Upon A Hobbit, on Flickr

    On the shores of the big lake a town there lay
    Men and women there live, their children do play
    On the waters the moon shone ever so clear
    At the tall Lonely Mountain they looked up in fear
    At the tall Lonely Mountain they looked up in fear

    "Smaug the dragon is coming, cut the bridges! To arms!"
    Warning trumpets did sound and raised the alarm.
    Fire leaped from the dragon's jaws, caused the people to flee
    "To arms, men!" Bard the Bowman said as the dragon he sees

    Men were jumping in the water, swimming on to the shore
    Bard the Bowman did not move, shooting arrows galore
    His companions were leaving, his last arrow he drew
    As the small little thrush on his shoulder flew
    As the small little thrush on his shoulder flew

    Little bird gently whispered in Bard's ear so soon
    "Aim for dragon's left breast in the light of the moon!"
    Arrow, black arrow, I saved you to last..."
    "Never you failed me, go now and fast!"

    The great bow twanged, black arrow sped through the night
    Smaug the golden was hit, turned and crashed out of sight
    White hot steam leaped up from waters with a hiss sound
    Then silence returned, fires burning but safe was Lake Town

    Nevermore dragon will rest on the gold in the halls
    Nevermore men will fear the mountain so tall
    Little bird and Black Arrow flew in to the night
    Smaug the Golden now dead forevermore out of sight

    The stage this year will be at Bag End, in the gardens for we thought the background there looks stunning - Mrs Lobelia Sackville-Baggins has agreed to the use of Bag End's garden for one evening ( after a payment of 10 silver spoon and one new umbrella ) - do come early on the evening to secure the best sits - we kindly ask all tall folk that are planning on coming to the performance to rememer hobbits are small and may need to sit in front to have a good view.

    What an amazing show! Everyone did such a great job with the music and the narration. I make my home on Landroval, but I make sure to stop by Laurelin once a year just for 'There and Back Again'. Thank you so much for putting this on, and I will see you next year, I hope!
