Rusty Hook



“In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.”

- Terry Pratchett, Lords & Ladies

Discworld Denizens, Wyrd Sisters and those at Death's door! 


It was a strange, magical, flat word, populated by wizards, dwarfs and trolls, replete withd dragons and barbarian heroes. 

In turn, this world was perched atop four enormous elephants, themselves standing atop a giant star-turtle swimming through the galactic void.

One of the the most prolific and imaginative authors of our time, Sir Terry Pratchett created a world of wonder and magic that few can compare to.

This year, AlterEgos Events invites roundworlders and Kevins alike to descend upon Rusty Hook to experience the magic of Discworld first hand.
