Just one year to go!
Those of you with a well organised calendar1 will have realised that it is just one year until the doors open to our next entertaining and educational Discworld Convention on July 2nd, 2021. While a year may seem a very long time in these uncertain days of social distancing and lockdowns, the committee is already very busy2 organising three days of much-needed fun and levity inspired by the works of Sir Terry Pratchett. We are eager to welcome you to the bustling streets of Ankh-Morpork, Citie of 1000 Surprises.
Remember to wash your hands regularly. Mr Von Lipwig has kindly recorded a demonstration of the correct technique, which you can find here.
Next newsletter, the Assassin's Guild has offered to demonstrate social distancing in the course of your work.
As another teaser, here is a photo looking down the stairs that lead to the venue. We have been assured5 that the chandelier is perfectly safe and firmly affixed to the ceiling.
By now, most of you who supported Snowgum Film's production of Troll Bridge will have received your copy on DVD, BluRay or Streaming. This has been a long labour of love for the team and especially Daniel Knight6, but what an amazing film they have produced! And they totally deserve the awards they collected on the film festival circuit. We take off our hats/helmets/hoods/bonnets/mosses7 to them for a truly incredible creation.
To find out more about Troll Bridge, visit https://www.trollbridge.film. If you didn't manage to pledge to the project in time to get a physical copy, you can still pay for access to the Streaming Arena at this link.
You can find official information here at the convention website.
1 Drumknott keeps my calendar very well organised. He has coloured pins for every eventuality. (These should not be confused with the pins used by the Assassins' Guild, which you should not accept under any circumstances!)
