UK PonyCon 2016 tickets go on sale tomorrow evening!

As announced on Twitter by the official UK PonyCon account yesterday evening, tickets for this year's convention will be released for sale on Saturday 2nd April at 7.30 pm (presumably UK time). That's tomorrow! I don't think that the pricing structure has been revealed yet, so presumably we'll all find that out together when we look at the website. I'm assuming that PayPal will be the way to buy, since it was in 2015.

There's one other already-announced change from last year: entry to UK PonyCon 2016 will be by advance booking only, with no tickets available on the door. This was probably an inevitable change after the con unexpectedly sold out last time. It's a little bit of a shame that "spur of the moment" trips for locals will no longer be possible, but with the numbers UK PonyCon now gets there wasn't really much alternative.

Not officially announced as I type, but looking very likely: instead of the generic "one-day ticket" from 2015, this time you'll have to choose Saturday or Sunday in advance. Again, this does remove a bit of flexibility: if you buy a Saturday ticket and something comes up, you can't just go on Sunday instead (especially if Sunday tickets have sold out by then). I imagine this also has to do with the new setup: the con wants to have an idea about numbers each day.

More details here in the near future!
