UK PonyCon 2015 tickets are now on sale

I've been waiting for this news! The UK PonyCon 2015 team have announced that tickets are now on sale for this year's convention, which will have the theme "Space". This will be at the Mercure "The Grand" Hotel in Leicester city centre for the second year running, though this time round the con will have the whole hotel to itself, not just half of the place. As in 2014, the con is scheduled for the second weekend in October, which this year means the 10th and 11th.

Adult tickets
Earlybird weekend: £25
Standard weekend: £30
Standard one-day: £18
VIP weekend: £70

Child tickets
Earlybird weekend: £10
Standard weekend: £15
Standard one-day: £8

Family tickets
Standard weekend: £70
Standard one-day: £40

Adult = age 13+; Child = age 5-12; under-fives free. Family = 2a2c or 1a4c.

The VIP ticket price includes priority entry, priority seating at main stage events, VIP lanyard, goodie bag (including some VIP-only items) and con T-shirt.

Here's the official website's tickets page, including links to the online shop and a nice, clear FAQ section. Given my very positive experience last year, I have a great deal of time for this con; it's definitely the 2015 pony convention I'm most interested in. Subject to my health playing ball for a change, I thoroughly intend to attend UK PonyCon again this year, so I hope to see some of you in Leicester in seven months' time!


  1. Brought my ticket on Saturday, had to get a standard weekend pass as I have other things I have planned for the upcoming year (i.e a trip to Newcastle on Wednesday), but still if it's like anything like last year, it should be a blast!

    1. I'm holding off for a few days, as I haven't quite ruled out the VIP option -- but it's unlikely I'll be able to justify it. Now Sparkler's said that T-shirts will be available separately, I'll probably go down the "weekend pass + shirt" combo route. And yes, I loved it last year, so really hope it can be that good again!

  2. I see the goodie bags are on offer again this year, with the VIP tickets. I wonder what they'll put in there this time, considering the chosen theme of space. That could certainly inspire some interesting goodies! :)

    1. Perhaps the bags will be totally empty. Full of space, you see! =:D

    2. Ah, now that would be perfect!
