Discworld Day 2019: An Ankh-Morpork Adventure

And what an adventure it was as discworlders and roundworlders alike converged on La Vue in Muldersdrift on 9 November.
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 onna 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, Troll Bridge.
Kindly loaned to the Alter Egos Team by SnowGum films, it was collective goosebumps as we realised how fortunate we were. 100 lucky people got to witness the masterpiece inside the Odium snacking on banged grains.
Each screening ended with teary eyes and rounds of applause, bringing to an end a truly fantastic day on the Disc.

Announcing Discworld Day 2019 – An Ankh-Morpork Adventure

“Poets have tried to describe Ankh-Morpork. They have failed. Perhaps it’s the sheer zestful vitality of the place, or maybe it’s just that a city with a million inhabitants and no sewers is rather robust for poets, who prefer daffodils and no wonder. So let’s just say that Ankh-Morpork is as full of life as an old cheese on a hot day, as loud as a curse in a cathedral, as bright as an oil slick, as colourful as a bruise and as full of activity, industry, bustle and sheer exuberant busyness as a dead dog on a termite mound.”
― Terry Pratchett, Mort
