UK PonyCon is now SOLD OUT

That's right: even though the actual convention isn't until late October, UK PonyCon 2016 has completely exhausted its stock of tickets. The last few Sunday passes were sold a few days ago, so we can expect a capacity crowd of pony people at Leeds Royal Armouries in just under three months' time. I'm extremely glad that I snapped up a weekend ticket in the first few hours after they went on sale, as I would have been desperately disappointed to have missed out after having such a good time last year.

It's a tremendous tribute (gosh, the alliteration is strong in me today) to UK PonyCon that its tickets have been in such great demand again this year, and a sign that even in the post-BUCK era British MLP conventions are still something fans want to attend. It's obviously a shame for anyone who couldn't commit this far in advance, but I don't see a way around that without vastly expanding the con's capacity, something that I agree with the organisers would change the atmosphere we all enjoy so much.

Anyway, if you have managed to get a ticket, I look forward to seeing you in Leeds!


  1. Gosh, that's early. But like you said, they keep the ticket numbers limited to preserve the feel of the con.

    I'll be looking forward to seeing everypony in Leeds on Saturday morning, if not Friday evening. :)

    1. Considering they only sold out a couple of weeks in advance last time, I am impressed... but given how popular it was last year, maybe I shouldn't be!

      As I said at the meet the other day, my current plan is to come on Friday afternoon and go home on Sunday evening, so if there's some sort of Friday evening get-together again then I'll definitely look into it. :)
