Adelaide - City of Small Gods

 

City of Small Gods

We have an established Terry Pratchett & Discworld fan group in Adelaide called The City of Small Gods, which is open to anyone who would like to come - you don't have to live in Adelaide or even South Australia, or even be a Discworld fan, but that's mostly where our events will be held, and we do like discussing Pratchett's works.

Troll Bridge - South Australian Premiere

We are hosting the South Australian Premiere of Terry Pratchett's "Troll Bridge" by Snowgum Films, on Saturday 21st September at the Mercury Cinema.

This is your only opportunity to see Troll Bridge on the big screen in Adelaide, so don't miss out!

Charities we support

The City of Small Gods and Round Worlds Events SA Inc. donate part of monies raised at our events to the following charities:

Round World Events SA Inc.

Round World Events SARound World Events SA Inc is a not-for-profit incorporated association whose aim is to run fun social Pratchett-themed events for people in South Australia. We have run two Australian Discworld Conventions: Unseen University Convivium in 2012 and Nullus Anxietas VI - The Discworld Grand Tour in 2017.

We have also run several successful and booked out Science Fiction and Fantasy themed quiz nights named Quiz Long And Prosper, from 2013 to 2016, now returing in 2019!

The association will run most events under the City of Small Gods banner, but you do not have to be a Round World Events SA member to be part of City of Small Gods. However, we are always on the look out for new members for Round World Events SA to help us organise future events! Membership is $20 a year (for Adelaide locals) or $5 a year (for those not quite so close) and has the following benefits:

  • A shiny membership certificate all of your very own
  • Discounted entry price to some of the events we run
  • A warm, fuzzy feeling deep down in your chest (no, not quite that deep)

For more information, or to join as a member, please email Round World Events SA Inc.
