And what an adventure it was as discworlders and roundworlders alike converged on La Vue in Muldersdrift.
Sir Terry Pratchett smiled down on the day, making his presence known by the beautiful sunshine with just enough wind to dislodge some witches hats.
Fans of the man, from as young as 3 years old, explored the Streets of Cunning Artifacers, offered up bananas (and popcorn) to The Librarian with much Óoking’, whilst Death and Binky stalked amongst The Shades.
The Watch recruited some willing and some (un) willing, Twoflower lost his luggage and the Octavo glowered over the Unseen University.
With so many adventures to be had, the venue was a haze of activity as multiple Susans, Feegles, Tiffanys and Wizzards went postal.
A hugely successful dress up competition was held under the Sapient Pearwood tree, shortly after we crowned a victorious (albeit 2nd place) winner in The Witch trials.
With homage being paid by every single visitor, rat on a stick being consumed at an alarming rate and us narrowly avoiding Dibbler cutting his own throat it is safe to say that the pages of the most popular of STP’s books came to life.
The cherry on the top of what can only be described as a magical day, was the VERY FIRST screening on African soil of the short movie, Trollbridge.

Each screening ended with teary eyes and rounds of applause, bringing to an end a truly fantastic day on the Disc.
