“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, bustle and exuberant busyness as a dead dog on a termite mound.”
The team that brought you eight Magical Medieval Fayres, three Fantasy Fayres and A Viking Thing – Alter Egos – are back with the 3rd annual Discworld experience. For lovers of fantasy, fiction and the die-hard Terry Pratchett believers – this is an event not to be missed on 9th November, and I’m so looking forward to it!
At this year’s event you will have the opportunity to discover the streets of Ankh-Morpork, the greatest city of the Discworld. A folklorique network of old lanes, squares and alleys for your walking pleasure. Exitement and trolls lurke arounde everry corner and the traditional street cries of old time and laughing visages of the denuizens as they goe about their business private.
“No those weren’t typos – we are merely flexing our muscles as Pratchett aficionados and lovers of all that is Discworld,” says the Alter Egos team. “For our regular fans of our events, you will be delighted to find out that we have once again secured La Vue Lodge in Muldersdrift as our venue, a firm favourite as a result of its expansive stall area with ample parking.”
As if that wasn’t enough to win you over, then the team suggests you come and enjoy Rats-onna-stick, Scumble and themed food for the most die-hard of fans, enjoy the market stalls and stroll through streets of Ankh-Morpork.
There are plenty of activities for the young and old, including the famous Alter Egos Fancy Dress, the always asked for Mended Drum Quizz and The Ankh-Morpork Quest. You will have an opportunity to interact with your favourite characters from the famous Terry Pratchett books too.
Even if you’re a Round-Worlder and have no idea what it’s all about, allow the Alter Egos team to initiate you into the world of Sir Terry Pratchett and Discworld – a comic fantasy book series set on Discworld, a flat planet on the backs of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle!
