Skipton would be good, mainly because i would love to see all the locals faces when us pony people look over 😂.

There is actually a largeish venue where they hold local anime conventions and stuff some few miles from where my family live. It's on a direct trainline from an airport with a train every hour, it has lots of accommodation now in the area and is within walking distance of the station or there is a bus that goes from the station direct to the venue. It is perfect in so many ways BUT because they didn't give a survey this year, I haven't been able to suggest it. :/ Its a shame because it ticks all the boxes for an event like ponycon.

It's on the 13th and 14th of October this year right? Me and my mum are both really hoping to go so I hope its roughly north somewhere, either Leeds, York, Sheffield or Lincoln would be great. Maybe even Birmingham because its right in the centre of the country and there are trains running there constantly.

*waves hands* I vote for Birmingham. It's the one location I can easily get to whether I'm living in London or at home :)

I don't know if the dates have been confirmed yet?

Manchester? I’m biased.

The best venue I’ve been to was at the Public in Birmingham. Easy to get to and very ‘pony’ (bright pink floors!). Staff were lovely too.

I've just checked, and they have! it says on both their Facebook page and the website that the dates have been confirmed for Saturday the 13th and Sunday the 14th of October, but the venue has yet to be announced. I'm hoping to get a weekend ticket when they go on sale because I'm so slow looking round at conventions, I like to spend ages looking at one thing!

Actually Manchester would be great too, It's only about an hour away from me on a good traffic day and there are also trains running there all the time!

Yes, public transport is excellent in Manchester - tons of buses, the metrolink is brilliant and it has a huge airport and train station. It’s really easy to get around.

While i'd love for it to be in sheffield because i live there, i prefer it when cons are a distance so i have to get accommodation. Means i'm not leaving the party early :)

Ideally i'd like to see it somewhere in the middle of the country. Birmingham is a great choice for transport but i imagine venues are a nightmare. Is anyone working on anything at the moment for the con? I want to start on one of my cosplays soon as i started it for last year but had an injury in the run up to the con which meant i couldn't finish it T-T

Ponycon always has an airport link of some kind, but it's also worth finding out which UK airports flights from your destination go into as well. Most airports serve Europe but not all serve further afield.

It’s going to be in Nottingham this year! Pretty far from me sadly, Bristol was perfect location wise, but the hotel is booked, and I’ll be there! I hope you all can make it! If you want to say hi, I’ll be wearing a popples backpack (pancake).

Nottingham isn't that bad for me! I live an hour or so away so we will only have to stay over for one night! Eeek, I'm already so excited!
