A Discworld Convention is a family meeting
I guarantee you, if you've read a discworld book then you won't feel out of place.
- Do wear a witches/wizards hat ~ only about a third of the membership dresses up in costume, but they will make you feel very envious if you're dressed in jeans and a t'shirt (which is the norm btw.)
- Oh, and wear comfortable, non lace-up shoes ~ there will be queues
- There is only a lot of quaffing involved if you want there to be quaffing
Honestly ~ four drinks over the whole four day weekend. It's expensive
Among the things to look forward to will be recieving your membership badge, programme book and the Read Me (PS, read it, it helps.
) Meeting your new best friends, cheering during the Opening Ceremony, dozing as Terry reads from his newest book, laughing during the Maskerade, marvelling at the delights of the Dealers room, and peoples Hall costumes, the good food served by the hotel, the good music and sing-alongs initiated by DW fans, and finally, realising during the Dead Monkey, end of convention Party that'll you are home, and that you never want to leave
