Bilbo Baggins scores music licence

THERE’S a Lord Of The Rings geek lurking somewhere in the offices at Camden Town Hall, yeah there is.

In dummy copies of pub licensing forms – used for ilustrative purposes – the blanks are occupied, not with John Smith or Joe Bloggs or XXXX XXXX, but Bilbo Baggins.

And, good news, he’s just scored a music and dancing licence for the Prancing Pony in Bree. I’d like to think somewhere in his wizard head JRR Tolkien will have known somehow – not sure how, but somehow – that one day his hobbity friends would be helping the smooth application of local government.
