Brussels gets a taste of Middle Earth
Brussels received a taste of Middle Earth last night at a special cocktail reception and advanced private screening of the first in Sir Peter Jackson’s trilogy of The Hobbit movies - An Unexpected Journey.
Hosted by Time Warner and the New Zealand Embassy Brussels, the event was attended by around 150 people.
New Zealand Ambassador-designate to Belgium, Paula Wilson, who spoke prior to the screening, said the event was a great success.
"As a proud Kiwi it was a pleasure to be able to give some of our friends in Brussels a chance to see the movie before it opens, showcase some New Zealand wine and play a special DVD from Tourism New Zealand. And the 3D glasses made everyone look fabulous too!," said Ms Wilson.
"Thanks to Claudio and his team for organising a great event."
