Feegle's Guide to Conventions
If you have no idea what's going on, or just need a re-introduction, this is the place for you. This panel is running on Friday and Saturday to get you in the mood for the weekend.
Gopher and Watch Briefing
If you've signed up to help come here to find out what that might entail. Rewards abound for those that volunteer over the weekend!
Just one of the games we'll be playing over the weekend. It's fun to play and watch! This is one that you can join in the second time round, if you're of the nervous persuasion.
Unseen University Challange
Do you have what it take to make it to the Final? Do you have what it takes to then beat the Committee/Guest Team? Teams of four please!
Just a Minute
Can you speak on a given topic without hesitation, deviation or repetition? Then play here. No? Well, come see those who think they can.
The first of our Guest Panels for the weekend. Jacqueline Simpson is a reknowned folklorist and has co-authored with Terry on the Folklore of the Disc. Here she tells all about the cunning fox, and why we think he's cunning. And other interesting bits!
The latest of the Discworld films will be shown on Friday. Which links in nicely with Extra! Extra! (Can you guess what that one is?)
A chance for us to introduce the guests and show and tell you what the weekend will be like!
A chance to dance the night away, Irish style! With Irish traditional music to dance a few sets and jigs to as well as some more gentle styles, we'll keep you moving through the night.
Usually played late at night when the moon is full, or bulging, or anytime really...
Those of you following on Facebook or Twitter (or the forum) will have seen some of the clues to the Scavenger Hunt. Collect your Hunt sheets and see how many you guessed right (and then hunt down the people responsible)! Also, try and find those things!
The lovely guys from this Discworld Board Game – David Bradshaw and Leonard Boyd - have brought along some copies to show (and sell) and are doing a live action version for our amusment! No PurChase NecessAry!
Music with Rocks in
Disco too much for you? Céilí not your thing? Join in here for some mad Discworld music and songwriting!
If you're a fan of Terry and his adapted works, then you'll have heard of these guys. They're Australian, or at least based in Australia, and have been working on an adaption of Troll Bridge – a Discworld short – for some time now. They've recently fundraised the money and will be here via Skype to talk to us about the upcoming production.
Bernard in the Chair
If you've heard this man, then you need no further explaination. If you've not, then you really need to see him to understand him. One of Terry's closest friends, Bernard has worked on more Discworld Art work than you can shake a reasonably large stick at. He also likes to talk, a lot... He will need the two hours... And when those two hours are up, you'll still want to hear more. That's why he's our Guest of Honour!
Smythe, Colin Smythe. Agent 007a
He's the man who signed Terry up for his first book deal. So yes, he's got things to say.
We already have a few signups for the Maskerade. But don't let that put you off signing up on the day. Our amazing winners from 2009 signed up on the Saturday, wrote the script on the day, and, clearly, wowed their audience! Little bits, big bits! Anything to entertain the audience is accepted!
What can we say, we like to keep you entertained long into the night!
What's your Fantasy?
What could I say about this panel that would be more interesting that the title? Well, this won't help- but it is family friendly...
Art of Discworld
There is so much to say on this subject. From the completely different cover art over the years to the work done by Bernard.
Oswalds Awards and Posh Dinner
This is our poshest event of the weekend. With a lovely choice dinner, some nice speeches and some entertainment in the form of our Awards Ceremony.
Cos no evening is complete without some dancing!
Told late at night, in a darkened room. What better?
Wake up Ankh Morpork
A chat show style interview with some of our guests! Wake up with style!
This is weekend of fun, but we also aim to raise a little something for the Alzheimer Society of Ireland and . Here's a nice little auction full of nice little Discworld stuff.
Another Quiz to test your brains. Solo!
So, you may have heard that some fans were invited to be on set for the filming of Going Postal. Well some of them are here this weekend and are invited to tell you all! Ooooohhhhh!
Har Megiddo – The Truth
What if God were to throw an Armageddon and no one came?
How to committ the Perfect Murder
Names will be taken at the door – alibis will not be provided.
Playing the Discworld
Martin Wallace from Tree Frog Games on his new Discworld Board Game – Ankh Morpork. Also, how to make a board game and the joys of making a board game. We'll be talking about board games.
We have two of these over the weekend so don't panic if you miss the first. You may panic when you miss the second however.
Three is the Magic Number
Ever wonder why it's always 3? You know, the Maid, Mother and, well, the Other One... Jacqueline Simpson explains here.
The short story by Sir Terry Pratchett written for More Tales from the Forbidden Planet, has been devised as a radio play. Watch and see this radio play live in action.
We also need volunteers to perform in this event, as actors and chickens! It's all in the name of fun!
Send your name in here:
With Jacqueline Simpson one day and Jack and Ian another. It's gonna be interesting.
Got a question you couldn't ask in front of fifty other people? Put your name down for a guest klatch and ask it in front of 6!
A sad farewell will be said to this wonderful weekend. But not of course to the lingering headaches, photos and friendships! Be sure to swap facebook names before you leave! It's the done thing, you know.
Dead Monkey Party
