The Lost Con: your virtual Discworld Convention

The Lost Con will be a virtual event, running on Saturday 3rd July. The provisional times are from 4pm until midnight, Sydney time (AEST).

It is open (and free) to all attending and supporting members of Nullus Anxietas 7a, our 2022 convention. It's a chance for us all to catch up, meet a few guests and enjoy a few Terry Pratchett and Discworld related events.

If you don't have a supporting membership yet, you can buy one in our shop. Remember that this is also your deposit for attending membership at the non-virtual Discworld convention in Sydney next year, 8th to 10th April, 2022. Buy now and you can upgrade later at the Early Bird price. As our friend CMOT Dibbler would say "that's cutting my own throat, squire".

Always know where your T Shirt is1

So you can feel like you are at the convention from the comfort of your own home, we have designed a special Lost Con T-shirt. They are available in a range of sizes in mens and ladies styles. These are on very limited offer, and you need to move fast. We mean really fast.

This is absolutely your last chance to order one before the Lost Con. So that we can get the shirt to you in time for the main event, you need to place your order by 31st May. That way the shirts can be printed and posted as soon as possible, so you can proudly (and non-virtually) wear it during our convention.

You can order directly from our website here. Best do it now! The clock is ticking!

So who will be there?

Guest #3 is Snowgum Films

We will be joined by Daniel Knight and Ahren Morris, Director and Producer of Troll Bridge. They will be talking about the Unexpectedly Long Journey2 of making Troll Bridge and will be ready to answer your questions. Or just chat about life at Snowgum Films3. Did you know that lately they’ve been working on a script for Faust (not Eric)?

Footnotes:

1All right - so this is actually a "Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy" reference - but the Unseen University students will appreciate it.

2All right - a reference to "The Hobbit" - ditto.
