It is safe to say, that whilst Terry Pratchett and his works are not necessarily considered mainstream, fans and newbies alike were able to experience magic and learn about his brilliance. There is never a dull moment at our events and 2022 yielded some of the most elaborate costumes we have ever seen! The Quest was also hotly contested, bringing in some of the highest scores we have seen to date and one lucky person walked away with The Luggage’s Loot Raffle, with goodies worth over R5000.

One of our favourite’s on the calendar, this “little” biennial event is one that people speak about for week, as memories of the event and the special moments that were experienced remain at the forefront of people’s minds.

Terry Pratchett’s world came to life at Rusty Hook as guests were treated to scenes from the Discworld.
Exploring the traders in the shades, being conned by CMOT Dibbler, battling with Feegles, narrowly dodging Death and Binky and joining The Watch with Captain Carrot were just some of the highlights of the day.

We were inundated with superfans of the author, who dressed up as their favourite characters and came along to interact with our cast. From Witch Trials with Granny Weatherwax to quizzing with the Patrician it was certainly decided that one of the best moments of the day was singing dirty songs with Nanny Ogg in the Broken Drum.

As always, the Alter Egos Teams pulled out all the stops, paying special attention to each and every detail, ensuring that our guests were really immersed in this magical world.

The Odium screened movies all day and Rincewind thrilled guests with close up magic.
