Membership

Convention membership is what allows you access to The Discworld Convention 2018, and will be available for purchase at 19:00 BST on the 10th July 2017. Starting with this Convention we will only be taking payment for the memberships using online payment through the website, and will no longer accept printed membership forms or payment by check, cash, or other equivalents. Online card payments will be processed using Stripe, which accepts all major credit and debit cards.

Full membership

This includes attendance at all four days of the Convention plus subscription to regular news & updates in the lead up to the Convention. With our attending memberships (Full and Concessionary) you receive entry to all programme events, except the Gala Dinner, plus access to the Dealers' room and our specially-negotiated rates for food, drink and accommodation. Members will receive on registration at the Convention their membership pack, including Convention badge, Souvenir Book, Programme, and Other Very Useful Things.

Concessionary rates

These are available for:

  • students
  • pensioners
  • children (13-17)
  • benefit qualified individuals

You will need to bring proof of eligibility to the Convention, and your concessionary status must apply during the event.

There is no charge for children aged 12 and under, but we must receive an application for them. Any minor MUST be accompanied by an adult member (full or concessionary) who accepts full legal responsibility for the minor for the duration of their stay at the Convention.

Should you require additional assistance to get around the Convention and need to be accompanied by a carer, please contact us at membership@dwcon.org.

Supporting membership

This includes subscription to all e-Newsletters prior to the event, but does not include attendance at the Convention, and does not allow reservation of hotel rooms or purchase of camping pitches.

Supporting membership may be upgraded to full membership at any time, at the applicable rate (full or concessionary) from the initial date of purchase. Think of it as a means of reserving a place, if you are not sure if you will be able to attend.

Dealers

We will publish information on booking and purchasing dealers’ tables at a later date. If you want to attend the Convention as well as being a dealer, please book your membership when sales open. You can also email us at dealers@dwcon.org for more information.

If you are only interested in being a dealer, and don’t plan on attending any of the Convention programme items, please contact us at dealers@dwcon.org.

Our policies

Please ensure you read and understand the Convention Policies before purchasing your membership.
