On Your Holiday...


We have so much news to announce this month! Please take the time read everything below (you'll regret it if you don't. Honest).

What to do on your holiday

Nullus Anxietas VI - The Discworld Grand Tour - The Australian Discworld Convention is getting closer and closer every day! On August 4-6, 2017, we'll have a weekend packed full of lovely Discworld and Pratchett related activities for you to enjoy!

You can already find out a little bit about Vaudeville Le Maskerade, Passports, Mr Shine's Thud Parlor, the Gala Dinner and the Wine and Gourmet Tours here on our website, with more information about these and other events coming soon!

BUT (and my, that is a big but) we also desperately need your help to ensure the Discworld Grand Tour's itinerary is full of wonderful things to do. If you've got a great idea of an activity that you would like to run, please volunteer here.
