*****Towel Day is an annual celebration on the 25th of May, as a tribute to the late author Douglas Adams (1952-2001). On that day, fans around the universe carry a towel in his honour.*****

We're Belgium well doing it again!

Comics, Hitch-Hiker fans, poets and Vogons unite for the second annual Stand Up for Towel Day on H2G2's 40th anniversary year!

Carry your towel all day on International #towelday, May 25th, then stroll down to the Star of Kings, 5 minutes from Kings Cross, for a celebration of all things Hitch-hiker, in memory of Douglas Adams.
