UK PonyCon 2017 - Bristol - Sat 21 Oct - Sun 22 Oct
« on: April 30, 2017, 10:45:25 AM »
Hi folks -

just saw this advertised - anyone going?
I have never been to one so have no idea what they are like!

"The location for this years UK PonyCon is the Exhibition and Conference Centre at the University of West England, Bristol"

Mods, am I allowed to post a link? I'll pop it in a spoiler for now just in case -

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I am planning on going. I am glad the announcement has been late this year; I was afraid it would come while I was still in Japan and then I wouldn't get a ticket. I haven't worked out if I am going to go from London each day or whether I will stay in Bristol.

I wish I could go again, but alas, I can't afford to go to the UK this year!

If in doubt, buy a ticket! It's so worth it, I took my completely anti-pony hubby with me last year, and he loved it - he even bought 2 ponies. That's how good UK Ponycon is! It's really a great day or weekend out, and I'm chomping at the bit to get back to it.

I would love to go to the UK PonyCon at least once. I'm not sure if I'll be able to afford it this year, but I would seriously like to try. :heart:

I remember hearing that tickets sold out last year. How quickly do they usually sell out & if I purchased one, but could not attend is it possible to transfer the ticket to someone else?

It would be great if you could come out!!  I believe there is a refund policy to the 31st of July and then on a case by case basis there after.  If you have a look at the website or join the facebook group, you'll find more information. :)

*Edit*

I've booked my stall!  If you want to keep tabs on what I will be selling, please join my facebook group!

It would definitely be awesome if you could get over here :) Exchange rate $ to £ is probably as good as it's been in years as well. Can you combine it with something else to make it a short holiday in the UK? Bristol is within train reach of Oxford, London, Cardiff etc. Last year and the year before it sold out, but the year before I bought my ticket really late. Last year I think the VIP tickets sold out very quickly but it took a couple of months for the others. The thing is, though, every year people know there's a chance of sellout now, so it's hard to call. I don't know about returns or transfers, but someone on the comittee will.

I was considering trying to get a stall this year but the location makes that a bit tricky; it doesn't look like the public transport is very case friendly and my navigation is really poor so it will be enough to get myself to the venue without getting lost. My sister is also hoping to come this year (which will be interesting, she's been wanting to come for years but never been able to) so I hope the tickets don't sell out before she knows about her work schedule.

Also I hope they don't sell out before Tuesday because that's when I will have money to buy a ticket...sigh.

Keeping my fingers crossed along with you - I'm definitely going again this year, but can't afford the tickets yet either ^^;
