Terry Pratchett Day

Welcome to the resource page for Terry Pratchett Day 2024, themed Start in the Wrong Place. We have brought together ways to get involved for all ages, from activity sheets to social media assets, all of which focus on one thing: celebrating the joy of Terry’s work. You can click on all the below images to access and download the files to use.

Taking part? Share your photos with us! Whether it’s any of the activities from this page, taking part in the prompts we’ll be sharing across the Terry Pratchett Estate platforms on the day, or something else entirely, we’d love to see your photos of how you are celebrating Terry Pratchett Day 2024. You can see all of our accounts here.

Social images

We’d love to see Terry’s books appearing far and wide, so to help we’ve got some images for you to use in the spirit of sharing Discworld recommendations! You are of course welcome to edit your favourite editions of covers on, should you so choose. Tags for the day: #TerryPratchettDay.

In the spirit of encouraging everyone to Start in the Wrong Place, here’s a few books selected by the Terry Pratchett team on where to start with if you’ve yet to pick your next read.

Tell your friends and family!

We all have to start somewhere in this epic journey, and today is a great day to recommend your own starting point to others in your life. We’d love to hear what books you have recommended.


Most importantly, any time spent with a Pratchett book is time to be enjoyed. However you engage with Terry’s work, and with Terry Pratchett Day, we thank you for keeping his words alive.
