The City Watch

Our Convention Theme

The committee have followed a modest suggestion1 from me and the theme of the convention will be "Wellcome to Ankh-Morpork, Citie of One Thousand Surprises!". I have been assured that some of them will be nice!

This is an opportunity to experience the hustle and bustle of Ankh-Morpork's busy streets and watch our honest citizens2 go about their daily business.

Why not haggle with traders for a souvenir of your visit? Visit a convivial hostelry such as the Mended Drum and maybe see the odd hero3 drinking there? Try some of the city's many ethnic foods. Or our local favourites like a pig knuckle sandwich or slumpie? Just beware of anyone selling you a "sausage in a bun"!

Be entertained by the Guild of Fools4. Or robbed by the Guild of Thieves5.Lady Ramkin haggles with Dibbler

Our Convention Name

Some of you have asked why the convention has been named "Nullus Anxietas 7a"? "Nullus Anxietas" in the ancient Latatian tongue translates as "No worries" and reflects the care free, laid back approach of our convention hosts to life.

The wizards at Unseen University will be happy to explain to you why we do not use the number between 7 and 9 in high magic areas6.

New website

Our new look website is now up and running at https://ausdwcon.org/ and ready for you to book your place at our friendly convention. Here you can find up-to-date information (and more surprises) on what will be happening and about our guests, events and the venue.

The theme is based on the colour octarine7, in recognition of the many contributions made by Unseen University to the fame of Ankh Morpork7a.

More information

You can find official information here at the convention website.
