Bigger and Better than Before.

We can do it!

When we sold out of tickets for our Premiere Party in less than 48 hours, the battle was on! We had to find a way to fit more people in without losing our fantastic hilltop vantagepoint at the Skyline Restaurant. . After frantic phonecalls and some mighty wrestling with budgets, we prevailed. Our gracious hosts at The Skyline have organised a superb summer pavilion which will be set up to accommodate more guests.

So book now at Ticketek, and remember the price has gone up to $75 to cover the cost of the marquee. We expect that demand for these tickets will be strong locally, nationally and internationally. If you want to to avoid disappointment, we recommend booking as soon as possible.

Check out our Return of the Ringers page if you need remind yourself why you’re coming to this party.

But that’s not all!

On the preceding night, Saturday November 29th, and Red Carpet Tours are also proud to host

"The Return of the Ringers Black Tie Banquet."

This is a formal black tie event for Lord of the Rings fans who truly want to make this a night to remember. You’ll be offered champagne and canapés as you walk in the door to the haunting strains of Lothlorien, The banquet is a sit-down three-course dinner with a set menu of things to gladden a hobbit’s heart, wine worthy of the an Elf’s palate too, and some guest speakers to entertain you while you nibble dessert. Then you can follow the sound of music back out to where Ballyscully will be playing the Springle-Ring and other dances.

Like the Sunday "Return of the Ringers" this is a charity event raising money for Peter Jackson’s nominated charity, the Organ Donor Awareness Campaign so we’ll have a few little goodies to raffle off for that cause.
