Phil Newson

Volunteer Wrangler

Phil first became interested in Terry Pratchett in 1989 and is a serious collector of his books. His interest rapidly grew when he discovered the Discworld Convention as the 2010 charity supported by Tall Ships Youth Trust, one of his other interests. Canoeing is another great passion and his canoe proudly depicts dragons as it slices through the water.

He has become increasingly involved over the years, obtaining various costumes of his favourite characters from Terry’s books. This year he decided to join the committee where he can become even more involved and can interact with other equally committed members.
