More about UK PonyCONLINE – Britannia’s Birthday Bash

We’ve had a few questions about the online event so put together this handy guide with plenty of info for you all!

When is it?

  • Saturday 13th June 2020, from 11am to 11pm (UK times, UTC+0100)

Who’s welcome?

  • We’ll have events and stalls suitable for bronies, collectors and families alike

What’s the theme?

  • Britannia’s Birthday Bash – come together to celebrate Britannia’s birthday

How will it work?

  • You can access this online event from the comfort of your own home! We will be using Twitch to provide our video streaming, which will be integrated into our new website, currently under construction! This should mean that you are able to easily navigate around the streams.
  • For the socials we will still be using our Facebook group, but we have a new dedicated Twitter @UKPonyCONLINE as to not spam our current Twitter with announcements! The main socials where people can really connect and talk to each other will be on our Discord server, including both text and voice chats! The Discord server will also have dedicated spaces for Q & A so you are able to interact with panellists as you could do at a convention! With a Discord sever we will need help moderating so keep your eye out for moderator applications.
  • Stallholders will each have their own channel on Discord where they can set up a virtual “stall” to show off their amazing wares and provide links to buy! They will also feature on our website as well. We’ll provide information to help you make the most these features. We will open up applications shortly!
  • We really want to help raise money for the Riding for the Disabled Association, who are fundraising for the Covid-19 emergency appeal. We will set up our own fundraiser on Just Giving and it would be amazing if we could smash the target we set.

How much does it cost to attend?

  • Absolutely nothing, the entire hosted content of Britannia’s Birthday Bash is free to watch!

Will there be merch available?

  • OHHHHH YES! As well as our awesome stall holders we are also working on Britannia’s Birthday Bash merchandise too! Just watch this space!

How old do I have to be to attend?

  • All our content before 7pm (UK time, UTC+0100) will be family friendly and you will be able to see what is and is not by using the family friendly filter on the timetable. After 7pm we’ll maintain a moderation rating equivalent to the UK’s BBFC 12 rating or USA’s MPAA PG-13 rating.
  • The terms and conditions of Discord require the user to be 13 or over to use it, however video streams can be watched without a Discord account

When will applications open for stalls and panellists?

  • Keep an eye out on our social media as they will come out quick and fast!

Any other questions please feel free to email Bexi at events@ukponycon.co.uk

We look forward to seeing you at Britannia’s Birthday Bash!
