Announcing The Discworld Grand Tour!

Ladies, Gentlemen, Dwarfs, Trolls, Vampires, Werewolves, Goblins, Feegles, sundry others and Nobby Nobbs - the Ankh-Morpork Tourism Board invites you to a journey of wonder, whimsy, and, er, wossname at Nullus Anxietas VI - The Discworld Grand Tour - The Australian Discworld Convention.

The Discworld Grand Tour will be held on 4th-6th August 2017 at the Lakes Resort Hotel, Adelaide, South Australia. This convention will be a way to escape on a luxurious trip to the Discworld to enjoy three (or four) fabulous days of fun and frivolity with your fellow fans of the late, great Sir Terry Pratchett.

Our wonderful new website has just launched and can be found at https://ausdwcon.org
Please visit the site to read all about the upcoming convention and to book your tickets!

Let Rincewind tell you all about it:

Terry Pratchett Folio Special Offer

Thanks to the kind generosity of Rob Wilkins, the first 50 people to purchase tickets to Nullus Anxietas VI will receive a very special gift - a limited edition Terry Pratchett Folio, containing some short writings by our very favourite author. These have only been previously available to attendees at the UK Discworld Convention in 2014, at Nullus Anxietas V in 2015 and for a very short time at Discworld.com. This is your chance to get one of the few remaining copies, simply by buying your ticket to Nullus Anxietas VI!

HO! HO! HO! Buy your loved one a Hogswatch present!

Also now available in the Australian Discworld Convention shop are Hogswatch Presents - vouchers you can buy for a friend or loved one which they can use at a later date to buy their Nullus Anxietas VI ticket! This is a special limited-time sale - Hogswatch Presents will only be available until December 20th.

On the Nullus Anxietas booking form, there's a box for "Special requirements". I put "Just the usual - handmaidens, rose petal scatterers, that sort of thing. Oh, and a bar."

In my goodie bag (may she rest in peace) there was a small parcel containing: rose petals, hand maidens (sadly two-dimensional) and a bar. Of soap!" (I'll try to upload a picture tonight)

Well played, my antipodean friends, well played!
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

:lol: Well you only have yourself to blame! Non specification leads to the perils of "room for interpretation" and, given that this is DW fans we're talking about, it could have been a lot worse . . . like an iron bar applied to the noggin in a darkened corridor from a member of the Thieves' Guild and a quick riffle through your pockets for anything worth pinching! Mind you, at least you'd get a receipt . . . :wink:

The Special Requests was all Ula's idea...

Someone asked for a Pony... and they got a My Little Binky figure.

You should always be careful for what you wish for :)

I've been putting silly things on Convention forms for years - no one has ever managed to make a unique entertainment out of it before!
