UK PonyCon tickets are SOLD OUT · 2:55pm Oct 5th, 2015

Well, this was unexpected! Owing to unprecedented demand -- I guess partly because there's no BUCK this year -- UK PonyCon has completely sold out, which I don't believe has ever happened before. I'm not absolutely sure what the capacity of this year's venue is, but I'd guess around 500 -- and if that is the figure, it will make this by far the largest pony event in Britain this year. (Attendance was in the high 300s last year, with less space available.)

Bee-tah or Bay-tah · 6:33pm Jan 23rd, 2016

Beta. Is it pronounced Bee-tah or Bay-tah?

Well Yahoo awnsers says people in the UK pronounce it Bee-tah and people in America pronounce it bay-tah.

But I live in America not the UK! :applejackconfused:

UK PonyCon was fantastic · 11:01pm Oct 24th, 2016

I'll get a full (and doubtless highly waffly) write-up done for Louder Yay in the nearish future, but for now: I had a wonderful weekend. Not least the new (for me) experience of having someone bring up a story, unprompted, that was one I'd written -- not knowing the writer was sitting three seats away! And also having another someone I didn't know (who turned out to be Astrarian) say hi and thanks for reviewing her stories. Luckily

UK PonyCon 2018 dates! · 8:24pm Mar 13th, 2018

It was announced today that UK PonyCon 2018 will take place on the weekend of 13/14 October -- so exactly seven months from now! No word yet on the venue or ticket details, but I'd expect those over the next few weeks. I've been to the last four UKPCs and would love to go again, but until I know the venue I can't absolutely commit. We shall see!

Convention time! · 10:28pm Oct 17th, 2016

This weekend, I will be at UK PonyCon in Leeds. I'm greatly looking forward to it, as I loved the con last year. However, it does mean I won't be around on here much. Don't expect my summary review of the finale until early next week. (I've already seen it thanks to Tiny Pop, so that aspect is taken care of.) Everything else around here should continue roughly as it usually does.

UK PonyCon VIP tickets sold out, six months in advance! · 2:32pm Apr 14th, 2016

That's an academy record! All right, the VIP tickets were in pretty limited supply (35, I believe), but I'm still startled at them selling out in April for a convention that isn't until October. According to the con committee, there are still plenty of standard tickets available, but at the rate things are going they won't last until October either! At any rate, as BUCK fades into history it's really good to see the demand there still is for pony cons in the UK. :pinkiehappy:

Last call for UK PonyCon! · 11:53pm Aug 22nd, 2017

The people at UK PonyCon have announced that under 5% of the Saturday tickets for the convention remain -- so this is definitely your last chance! (Weekend, Sunday and stallholder tickets have already sold out.)

UK PonyCon SOLD OUT · 8:04pm Aug 31st, 2018

For the fourth year in a row, the largest British MLP convention, UK PonyCon, has completely sold out of tickets. That's despite using larger venues each year -- this time will see 1,000 attendees. Only BUCK has ever before reached four figures in the UK fandom, so it's quite an achievement. I have my ticket, so with lots of luck and a following wind, I'll be there in October. Hooves crossed! :yay:

Britain is Leaving the EU (Warning! Political views and facts ahead + wall of text) · 9:42am Jun 24th, 2016

Nationalism has had it's way once more... :applejackconfused:

So. Yesterday a referendum took place where the British peeps voted on whether we should leave the EU. This arose after the strong opinion within the population that we could operate outside the EU. Lemme' go over a few things.

Ponies IRL? · 8:53am Aug 29th, 2018

Well, I was searching Google pictures for inspiration (ha) and found this:
http://www.wildponywhispering.co.uk/

hm, I wonder if anyone will able to spot wrong/dissonanting picture? I was hoping for better, but terms like 'training' hurt more than just my eyes .... But still overall idea about "how the way we interact and connect with them can build trust, understanding and mutual respect " is very right, it just must be lived w/o traditional human compromises ....

UK Ponycon in October · 12:54pm Sep 9th, 2015

http://ukponycon.co.uk/ - convention in Leicester on October 10th/11th.

I'm going! Sadly I can't stay for the whole thing, but I'll be down for the main part of the convention (10-6) on Saturday 10th. I know it's not 100% Friendship is Magic focused, but I figured there's still going to be a lot of bronies there, some cool cosplay, music and merch, and possibly some FiM panels.

I'll post these first on my Louder Yay blog, so that's the place to look if you want to read them as soon as I publish them. But I thought I'd copy the blogs over here for the benefit of anyone who's interested but prefers to stick to Fimfiction. Expect a lag of between a few hours and a couple of days before they appear here. If you've already read this on Louder Yay, it's exactly the same here; no need to read twice! :rainbowwild:

Squarespace is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed website builders around. Like most website builders and content manager systems, Squarespace allows you to add and move around your content (text, video, images, sounds, galleries, shop…) with terrific ease, by simply dragging and dropping the content where you want it to be. Its stylish and visually unique templates have garnered it the nickname of a “hipster” website builder, and the hype around this company is definitely very

UK PonyCon still needs volunteers! · 4:33pm Aug 28th, 2018

UK PonyCon is the largest MLP convention in Britain, and this year it's on 13-14 October in Nottingham. One thing cons always need is help, and that goes beyond just the committee. Volunteers are always welcome -- in fact, without sufficient volunteers, some events simply can't happen. Even if you can only spare a few hours, that's still valuable! You'll generally need to be 18 or over and to have bought a convention ticket. (For the benefit of overseas
