Meet the Committee

The Committee are the core members of the team who volunteer their time throughout the year to make UK PonyCon possible.

UK PonyCon 2020 Team



Maz is excited to lead the UK PonyCon team for a third time. When he’s not working hard for the con, he’s sleeping, eating, riding trains or playing with computers. His favourite pony is Fluttershy.


Vice-Chair and Art and Design Lead

Sparkler stood in her pony room, admiring her collection. “It’s so beautifully shiny,” she remarked as she rearranged her colourful pony treasures. Sparkler loves shiny, sparkling objects. When she is on the committee, she makes all things sparkly.



Relatively new to MLP but looking for an opportunity to get involved in the fandom. Hoping to put skills gained being on committees at university to good use!


Stalls and Merchandise Lead and Volunteering Co-Lead

A Brony since mid 2011, and having joined the committee in 2017, Metaphor is recently taken on responsibility for stalls and merchandise at UK PonyCon as well as being co-volunteer lead. Powered by coffee he’s looking forward to yet another year on the committee. He is also an amateur writer working on his second book!

Midnight Dynasty

Events Lead and Volunteering Co-Lead

Midnight Dynasty (aka Bexi) is very excited to be UK PonyCon’s Events Lead and MC for a fourth year and her fifth as a committee member! She is also looking forward to helping to co-lead the volunteer team as well! At the convention you will usually find her on the stage or on a quest to find elderflower cordial or bubble tea. If anyone reads this and brings her a potato to the convention she will be most pleased – extra points for glitter!


Events Assistant

Amlaur has enjoyed mlp since she collected them as a child and is an avid collector now with a ponyroom full of all generations of Pony. She joined the fandom when she started watching FiM at the end of 2013. Attended her first UKPC as a stall assistant in 2014, VIP attendee 2015, volunteer 2016 and joined the committee in 2017. She also co-founded UK Bronies and Pegasisters and is still involved with the organisation today.


Events Assistant

Hi I’m Lisey AKA Elise. I love all things My Little Pony, especially G1. You can find me hunting out Crumpets and Ribbs for my army.

Irish O’Conner

Events Assistant

Being unofficially dubbed the gopher of UK PonyCon, Irish O’Conner is coming back this year. If the staff need something done or need something in a matter of seconds, Irish will undoubtedly go above and beyond to make sure the task is done. If you see him running around the convention, don’t panic. He is probably doing another task to progressively move the convention right along. #Spookycon2020


Events Assistant

A self confessed and very proud geek, I adore all things technology and all things pony. I’ve always been a my little pony fan from when I was a kid, however I started to collect ponies in 2011. I’m also a mad mighty ducks animated fan and has been since I was 14 and love to both draw and discuss the show. I also love Nordic walking, gaming, theatre and photography.


Events Assistant

When not busy looking after super cute hedgehogs, I am busy collecting everything Applejack!

Avui (Jake)


When Jake learned to hold a pen, he started drawing. Up to this day, he still loves to make art and spends hours making animated films. He has always watched My Little Pony and collected the figures, way back since Generation 1. When Gen 4 was introduced, it didn’t take long before ponies had to be drawn. He happily lives with his husband, daughter and cats. Other than collecting ponies, Jake is also a Pokémon TCG collector.



Hi! I’m Ash, AKA Prince-Lionel and Beatlinked! Brony since 2010, I guess anyway since brony wasn’t really a term back then. I’m a My Little Pony: The Movie (2017) fan-artist and love all things Big Mac and Firefly. When I’m not drawing ponies I spend my time obsessing over RWBY and playing Pokémon.



If you’re looking for an artist of all trades, you can count on Vera to be the one! Whether you’re looking for art of the Seven Dwarves, fluffy cats, colourful fruit bats or cute ponies, you will find that Vera will enchant you with her art, as her style is very unique and recognizable. Next to drawing, she also enjoys baking, gardening and taking care of her two cats.



Puck is a 22 year old student from the Netherlands, who started drawing in late 2015 and has never stopped drawing since. She prefers to paint mostly on just one layer, as more than one can get too confusing for her. Other things she enjoys besides drawing are cooking, singing, streaming, cycling and cuddling with her cat Pepper.



Forum and Discord Team

We also have a number of volunteer administrators and moderators for the UK PonyCon Forum and Discord server, who are also long term friends of the convention that help throughout the year.


Forum Admin

Has been part of the convention family since the very first in 2004. She spends far too much of her time on plastic ponies and then making costumes of said plastic ponies. Also, never diss Derpy Hooves in her presence ^_~


Forum and Discord Admin

pinkkittywinks’s got Cotton Candy for her fourth birthday in the early 1980’s. In 2003 she rediscovered her childhood collection and it reawakened her love of ponies. She became involved with UK PonyCon in 2004 and co-ran UK PonyCon 2005 alongside Silly Sunshine.
