This year, two special visitors will be arriving from the Middle Earth to take part in the Expo. Manu Bennett, Billy Boyd and Sean Astin will be making an appearance. These are some of the actors that played the main hobbits in the Lord Of The Rings trilogy.
Some of the dwarfs from the trilogy will be on hand as well including Dean O’Gorman that played Fili, Mark Hadlow who played Diri and Jed Brophy that took on the role of Nori. Hosting the event will be Craig Parker and Mark Ferguson. These actors played Haldir and Gil-Galad in the trilogy The Lord of the Rings. You'll also be able to enjoy a presentation of special effects by Weta Workshop on this special evening.
The fun and excitement takes place on April 25 for one night only. If you're interested in attending this event, you must purchase separate tickets to get in. Calgary Expo passes and tickets do not apply to this special event. You can purchase your Middle-Earth EXPOsed tickets at Ticketmaster and the prices range from $35 up to $90.
