The weather is getting warmer, and all you have to do is leave the house, the office or anything that reminds you of responsibilities and follow the tips Here & Now in Groningen and Leeuwarden/Friesland offers.
If you live in Leeuwarden and you want to start your weekend with something more thought-provoking then you have to watch Tolkien. The movie talks about the formative years of the famous writer in which he finds friendship, courage, and inspiration with a group of co-writers and artists at school.
The movie illustrates perfectly how Tolkien’s personality was shaped.
