By tradition, our Discworld conventions have supported two charities. The money is raised through the Charity Auction and the sale of convention merchandise. For the auction, we trawl the Disc Roundworld for rare and unusual Discworld memorabilia. We are always indebted to Colin Smythe, Sir Terry Pratchett’s agent, who has donated proof copies of Terry’s books as well as first print editions in different languages. If you have an item to donate to the auction, please contact us - the earlier the better! Last minute items are not accepted.
More details about our chosen charities will be listed on this page in the near future.
Included in your convention bag is a booklet with the details of the auction items available. (We may also post teasers on hot items here.)
The auction items will also be on display for your inspection and enticement before the actual auction. Some smaller items will be put on a silent auction where you make a written bid in advance at Ops.
Also in your convention bag you will find a bidding paddle showing your membership number. The systems is very simple:
