Our annual spring-time get together is only a few days away!

From the 4th to 7th May Discworld fans shall gather in our home town of Wincanton, Somerset for some like-minded company and charitable nonsense. In a tribute to this year's Roundworld events, we'll curtsey to the Queen's Jubilee and squat-thrust to the Olympics with a Right Royal Cori Celesti theme, so don your togas and polish your sceptres and let the Cori Celesti Games begin!

On Saturday, we've games, talks, craft stalls, a parade of Gods and Godesses, and a Royal Variety performance, "A little Klatch Music", in the afternoon. In the evening, Lord Hong will be hosting Discworld karaoke late into the night at the Bear Inn, and the talented singer/songwriter Sarah Yeo will be performing at the Dolphin Hotel.

The traditional Grand Charity Auction will commence at 11.00am on Sunday in aid of Alzheimer's research. We are still accepting donations, so if you can spare an item for a good cause please bring it to the Emporium desk along with a brief description for ease of cataloguing!
