Event details

Ring Quest returns to West Stow in the 2022 February half term for its 20th anniversary celebration!

Join us and explore Tolkien's world in this Lord of the Rings themed family challenge...

In February 2002, the first ever Ring Quest event took place here at West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village. Ring Quest has always been a family friendly event, awakening all ages to the special magic that is Tolkien’s world. Now, 20 years on, Ring Quest will celebrate this milestone with an event that’s bigger and better than ever!

The quest, with Tolkien themed clues to decipher and runes to decode – will of course be central to the event as you explore the Anglo-Saxon Village and Country Park, and this year the grand prize will be a 2 night stay at the incredible Pod Hollow! (www.weststowpods.co.uk)

The Ring Quest pack with new map and postcards is £2.50 each, and this year each advance booking will receive 1 free Ring Quest pack to be collected on the day (1 pack per booking)! Additional packs can of course be bought on the day if you'd like one per child.

You can also...
  • See the Hobbit Hole and watch out for the spiders in Mirkwood
  • Explore the exhibition in the visitor centre and try on Lord of the Rings costumes
  • Meet Halbarad, the Ranger of the North and try your hand at archery (n.b. there is an extra charge for this activity)
  • You may see the Orc as he drops in on his travels.
  • Meet extra characters in the Village (Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 February only)
