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.

Get Involved!

To keep up on exactly what's happening and when, or to take part in some online discussion, please join:

Regular meetings

Our (semi-) regular meetings are generally held on the last Thursday of the month at a pub or restaurant in Adelaide, currently the Caledonian, 219 O'Connell St North Adelaide. We have dinner at 6.30pm followed by games until 9pm. The games are usually shorter games like Pairs, Sushi Go, or Tiny Epic Defenders, with the occasional Werewolf session, as these are the best sort of games that work in a pub setting.

Games Days

Every few months, we have a full day's worth of board games at La Scala Cafe, 169 Unley Rd, Unley in the function room starting at 10am. Check the calendar below for the date of the next event.

Other gatherings

In addition to the above, we will occasionally have other events to go and see plays by Unseen Theatre Company, book discussions on Terry's latest, craft, chain maille or costuming workshops or other fun social activities. See our upcoming events for further info, and join the mailing list or Facebook group to get the details.

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. Our first major event was the Unseen University Convivium held in July 2012. We have also run three successful and booked out Science Fiction and Fantasy themed quiz nights named Quiz Long And Prosper, in 2013, 2014 and 2015!

We are also running the next Australian Discworld Convention, Nullus Anxietas VI - The Discworld Grand Tour - taking place in August 2017. You can find more out about it on this very website!

The association will run some 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.
