It doesn’t seem to be 5 minutes, since the last one but UK Pony Con (UKPC) is less than a month away.
I can now confirm that the venue for the UKPC pre-meet is The Playwright Nº 38. We have the Poets Corner booked (the backroom that is near the pizza oven) at The Playwright, for the Friday of the convention (7th of October), between 6:30 PM and when the pub closes at 12:00 AM. People are welcome to arrive at the pub before 6:30 PM, but we can not guarantee the room will not be available before 6:30 PM.
Less than 6 minutes from the Nottingham Conference Centre where the convention venue is, and we have a good relationship with the The Playwright.
The Playwright has adequate table space for card games. Some of the games we have played in the past are:
TSSSF (Twilight Sparkles’ Secret Shipfic Folder)
Tails of Equestria (a Pen and Paper RPG)
MLP CCG at the meetup.
Uno (Including the Wild Card Version)
If playing table top games is not your thing, there will be plenty of people who you can just hang out with and socialise.
Over the last couple of months, the Trottinghamshire Bronies attendees and I have been coming up with ideas for the UK Pony Con (UKPC) Pre/After Meetups.
I can now confirm that the venue for the UKPC pre-meet and after-meet is The Johnson Arms. We have The Johnson Arms booked for Friday 8th of October (between 4 PM and 11 PM) and Sunday 10th of October (between 7 PM and 11 PM) of the convention.
While not a requirement, it would be helpful for people to RSVP on this event page for the Pre Meetup, as The Johnson Arms has asked for rough numbers. The Event page for the After Meetup can be found here.
The Johnson Arms has adequate table space for card games such as TSSSF and MLP CCG. If playing tabletop games is not your thing, there will be plenty of people with who you can just hang out, show off convention merch and socialise.
The cheapest tram ticket is a Day Ticket and will cost £4.40 for Adults, or £3.40 for Students. Said tickets, along with other ticket options can be ordered online from the Nottingham Express Transit website, or the ticket machine at the Royal Centre tram stop.
The voting for dates of the next couple of upcoming meetups are now closed, and the dates have now been chosen. These dates were picked due to them being the most popular days, the least disliked days, and the days that gives people themost notice.
The October Meetup will be held on the 16th of October, and the August Meetup will be on the 6th of November.
In other news, I can now confirm that the venue for the UKPC pre-meet and after-meet is The Johnson Arms. We have the Johnson Arms booked for the Friday (8th of October between 4 PM and 11PM) and Sunday (10th of October between 7 PM and 11PM) of the convention. More details will be posted soon, including the best method of get to the venue from the convention centre.
Details for both meetups and the UKPC Pre-meet/After-meet, will be posted at a later date in the events selection of this website. I will update this blog post, when said details are added.
