Subject: The Australian Discworld Convention: The Lost Con, 3rd July 2021

The Lost Con: can you tell us more?

Raiders of the Lost Con

Drawing deep on the entrepreneurial spirit of Ankh-Morpork, we are organising a fun event to celebrate our lost 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)1.

It is open (and free) to all attending and supporting members of Nullus Anxietas 7a, our 2022 convention. It's intended to be 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 shop2.

We have a quiz to challenge you3, an escape room to, well, escape from4, a Maskerade5 to show off your costuming and prop-making skills, a radio play6 and guests to entertain you.

So who will be there?

Ben McKenzie and Elizabeth Flux from Pratchat will be joining us. As you know, they present a lively and entertaining podcast, discussing a different Pratchett book every month.7 They plan to record a special edition podcast live at the Lost Con, maybe with a special guest8. And there will be a chance for you, the audience, to submit questions.

Will there be T Shirts?

These are on very limited offer9, and you need to move fast. In order to get the shirt to you in time for the Lost Con, you need to place your order by 31st May.
