UK PonyCon 2020 returns to Nottingham on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th October for another weekend of pony fun.

We had such a great time at Nottingham Trent University’s City Campus over the past two years that we’re extremely happy to say that we’ll be back again later this year. We love the big open spaces, ease of access and supportive staff. You told us in the post-event survey that having a variety of accommodation options nearby, excellent transport links, plenty of side rooms for activities and a cafe or bar on-site were the most important things about our choice of venue, and we’ve found it difficult to find another venue that ticks these boxes as well as Nottingham while keeping ticket prices affordable.

This year’s UK PonyCon falls on a special weekend in history, as it marks ten years since My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic first aired on television on 10th October 2010. We hope that you’ll join us in celebrating our favourite pastel ponies and all of the adventures they have been on, and you can expect panels at the event where you’ll learn all about the history of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and the generations that came before.

The theme for UK PonyCon 2020 was announced in the closing ceremony of 2019’s event as “Spooky Con”, which will be our first Halloween themed convention despite having been held around that time for many years.

Over the coming weeks and months you can expect to hear more from us concerning ticket sales, stallholder applications, contributor applications, merchandise pre-orders and much more. In the meantime, please make sure you’re following us on social media so that you receive all of the updates.

Looking forward to seeing you all again,

Your UK PonyCon 2020 Committee
