Redwall Abbey: The Official Brian Jacques Website, otherwise known as Redwallabbey.com, has been the official website for Brian Jacques since 1996.


History

In the mid-1990s, an 11-year-old Dave Lindsay asked Brian Jacques if he could be his official webmaster, and Jacques wholeheartedly approved. A site was launched in 1996, and hosted at the url http://islandnet.com/~qnd/dave/jacques.html.

In 1997, Dave moved the site to the more familiar redwall.org. Over the years, the site has hosted various contests, including "Ask Brian", where fans had the opportunity to ask a question of Mr. Jacques himself.

In 1999, Dave hosted an online chat with Mr. Jacques. You can read the chat here.

In 2008, Redwall.org received a major layout re-design.

After managing the official Redwall website for over 14 years, Dave stepped down from the role of head webmaster in 2010.

In June 2011, Redwall Abbey changed domains to redwallabbey.com and rebranded the website with a new look, store and discussion forum.

Redwall Club/Redwall Readers Club

In the early stages of the site, Lindsay also hosted an official Redwall Abbey club. In order to join, one had to successfully complete a Redwall-themed crossword puzzle.

The site was home to the official Redwall Readers Club. Members received a membership pack upon joining, and then a further 2 mailings in the next year or so. The packet contents varied, but usually it consisted of stickers, bookmarks, recipes, quizzes, Mr. Jacques' biography, a poster, and Redwall collector cards. Membership costed £5.00.

La Dita Book Club

Redwallabbey.com is also home to the Redwall La Dita Co. Ltd. Book Shop, where all UK Edition books purchased are signed by Mr. Jacques.
