One Year To Go!

 

Yes, that's right - at this time next year, we'll be setting sail on The Discworld Grand Tour!

Tickets for Nullus Anxietas VI - The Australian Discworld Convention are available in the shop so make sure to book your spot!

Over the next twelve months, we'll be sending out regular updates about what you lovely tourists can expect - starting right now!

Events and Activities

On your tour, there will be a wide range of lovely events and activities for you to enjoy! Of the many available, we would like to give you a taste of just a few to whet your appetite...

  • Witness (and participate in) the vast array of talent in Vaudeville Le Maskerade.  One event, under the one roof, all in the one afternoon. So dust off your finery, limber up those vocal chords and join us in this amazing experience.
  • Eat, drink, explore your senses, and be merry at the Gala Dinner "Around the Disc in 7a Courses" - a whirlwind, steampunk culinary trip around the Disc.
  • Re-stage the Battle of Koom Valley, machinate your way to rule Ankh-Morpork, or send a message to Genua faster than the Ankh-Morpork Post Office! That's right, all the Discworld board games - and many more - will be available to play in Mr Shine's Thud Parlour.
  • What is a tourist without a Passport? Get your passport stamped at the convention by participating in activities, taking iconographs, playing games and many other mystery tasks! Collect the full set and win a prize!
  • Join us for one final chapter in the convention story on Monday, 7 August 2017 by spending a day exploring the delectable delights and tantalising tastes of the Adelaide Hills on the Wine and Gourmet Tours.

Events and Activities

More details on all the above, plus some of the other events and activities available can be found on this page.

Tickets for the Gala Dinner and Wine and Gourmet Tours will be available in early 2017. We will keep you informed over the coming months about all activities.

Help us to help you! Volunteers needed!

We are working hard behind the scenes to put on a fantabulous convention for all of you next year. We've been kicking around lots of ideas for possible activities and events so that we can bring you a programme chock-full of things to do. But at the moment these are just ideas - in order to turn them into reality we need people to run them!

So, if you've been wondering how you can get involved with the convention, now's your chance. Volunteer to run an activity or event!

There are lots of things you could do. You could:Discussion Panel

  • run a workshop teaching a skill or craft, or something fun for kids of all ages;
  • deliver a presentation, demonstration or information session;
  • be part of a group panel discussing a topic;
  • perform something for everybody's entertainment (a bit longer than a Maskerade act);
  • ... or maybe you have an idea for something totally different that we haven't thought of yet!

Head to the volunteers page and fill in the form saying that you are interested in running an event and give a brief explanation of the activity that you think you could run. The Events and Activities coordinator will then get in touch with you to get more details about your idea and possible requirements. You won't have to do it all by yourself - if you need help in the organisation or running, we'll be able to find you volunteers, and of course, if it's something that needs particpation, you're bound to get lots of support.

If you have any further questions, please contact events@ausdwcon.org

But wait, there's more!

  • Can you draw, paint, or make fancy art? We would love to have a few more artists on board who are willing to create some lovely Discworld fan art for games, passports, the programme book and more!
  • Want to help out in a more general capacity during the convention? Do things like taking official photos/video, helping with lights and sound, teaching board games, or just running around being useful?

For any of the above please also complete the form on the volunteer page. If you've already volunteered - don't worry, our Head Gopher will be in touch with you soon!

Remember, all Discworld conventions run entirely on volunteers, and anything you can do to help will be greatly appreciated!

Terry Pratchett Folios

The 50 folios we had to give away are all gone now, so thank you all for buying your tickets early. If you are unsure if you have been allocated a folio, please contact us so we can confirm. Most are being held to be given to you at the convention.

Seeking Sponsorship

Running a convention is not a cheap exercise, so we are currently seeking businesses willing to become sponsors of the Australian Discworld Convention. If you run a business, or know someone who does, who may be willing to throw a few dollars our way, please contact us with information about the business and we'll get in touch.
