Sir Terry Pratchett


UCLan staff and students will pay tribute to Sir Terry Pratchett this week.

The event will take place at UCLan’s Darwin Building Lecture Theatre from6-8pm on Thursday, March 19.

The celebration of the life of the much-loved author is free to attend, although organisers welcome donations to Alzheimer’s Research UK.

Event organiser Glen Carrigan, studying at UCLan, said :”Sir Terry Pratchett was a fantastic and unique individual, talented and conscientious, as well as a beloved patron of humanism.

“He leaves behind not only a wealth of literary works that many of us have enjoyed from childhood through to this present day, but also a legacy in ethical and compassionate charitable and social efforts including supporting assisted dying, and raising awareness of Alzheimer’s disease.”

Glen will read from Pratchett’s 2013 humanist of the year acceptance speech, which will then be followed by screenings of Terry Pratchett: Shaking Hands with Death and The Colour of Magic.

You can book into the evening via Eventbrite.
