Newbie's Guide


Welcome, new friends!

A Discworld convention is like nothing else1. It may seem daunting to launch headfirst into a weekend with other avid fans, spending oodles of money with no real knowledge of what you're in for. So we'd like to try and put you at your ease, and make you feel welcome. After all, we've all had at least one first Discworld convention experience...

To this end, we've written a detailed, illustrated epistle entitled "A Newbie's Guide to Discworld Conventions" which you can also download here as a text-only Word document if this format might be easier for you to read. The Newbie's Guide will also be emailed to you after you buy your convention ticket and check the box marked "This is my first Discworld convention".

We also have this lovely article from a few years ago written by Ula "YoungSam" Wilmott, detailing her time at Nullus Anxietas IV.

It might also be a good idea to read the FAQ as well!

If you have any further questions about anything at all, please do not hesitate to contact us.
