    Important: I am not UK PonyCon staff. This thread is being posted here as a convenience to UK of E members.

    Venue: NTU, Nottingham City Campus
    Dates: 8th and 9th May 2021 (note date change!)
    Theme: #SpookyCon

    I think it's about time we got a thread going for this year's UKPC! You can use this thread for discussing UK PonyCon 2020 (now 2021!), including things like travel and hotels. (Please be careful not to post personal information.) We've known this year's con theme since it was announced at the closing ceremony last year, but there's been an intriguing tweet from UKPC Towers today:



    I have no idea at this point what that announcement might be, but we shall see! :)

    Yes -- same venue for the third year running! I don't have entirely unmixed feelings about that (though those aren't related to the quality of the venue) but reading the post on the UKPC website I can understand why the decision was taken:

    https://www.ukponycon.co.uk/2020/02/22/uk-ponycon-returns-to-nottingham-in-october-2020/

    As also mentioned there, the Saturday of the convention will be the 10th anniversary of Friendship is Magic, so there's something to look forward to! :)

    I'm very interested in attending again, certainly. I can't be 100% sure for a little while yet, but hopefully it'll all work out.

    Well UK PonyCon has been delayed to May next year due to Covid 19 according to their Twitter feed. A bit of a bummer, but fully understandable.

    Thanks for the heads-up! I've edited the thread title and the first thread. Let's hope things are much calmer in a year's time and we can all enjoy a spring convention. :)

    That's too bad, but totally understandable. :)

    I'm glad Kelly Sheridan agreed to the new dates though. :)

    Also from the UKPC announcement: it seems #SpookyCon is no more, because of the change of time of year. Apparently a new theme will be announced in due course -- it's a "watch this space" kind of deal right now.

    Disappointing but understandable..

    2020 is pretty much a write off.

    The online UKPC now has a proper website, though it's not up to date (eg still asking for applications that closed on 1st June) and doesn't have a schedule. Looks quite nice, though:

    Slightly overdue post, but the schedule is up now. Link to the Discord server on the con's front page as well. :)
