    MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM — Britannia, mascot of UK PonyCon, invites you to join her on Saturday 13th June 2020 to UK PonyCONLINE: Britannia’s Birthday Bash to celebrate her birthday! During these challenging times, we’re putting on a free day of fun featuring panels, vendors and music from across the community.
    The event starts at 11:00 UK time (UTC+0100, 03:00 Pacific, 06:00 Eastern). The hub for participation will be a Discord server with vendors setting out their offerings in channels, and other channels for meet-ups and discussion. We’ll have two channels of panels streaming via Twitch for your delight, through to 23:00 UK time (UTC+0100, 15:00 Pacific, 18:00 Eastern).
    We’re proud to support the Riding for the Disabled Association, a charity in the UK that focuses on ability, not disability, by delivering therapy, achievement and enjoyment with their horses and volunteers across the country. You can support by bidding in our charity auction, donating to our JustGiving fundraiser or buying official convention merchandise, whose proceeds will be donated to charity.
    Bexi, lead for the UK PonyCONLINE event, said “UK PonyCONLINE was born on a dream to keep the positive energy of our amazing community going amidst us all having to stay in and conventions we all love and enjoy postponing. As well as bringing the community together we want to help promote the wonderful vendors!”
    For all the updates on events schedule, vendors and to join the Discord server when it opens, follow us on Twitter @ukponyconline.
    UK PonyCon is Europe’s longest-running fan created and organised convention celebrating all incarnations of My Little Pony since they were first released in 1982 right through to the Friendship is Magic series, the 2017 film and beyond. This year should have marked the 17th annual UK PonyCon convention, however due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re exploring other ways of getting together, beginning with UK PonyCONLINE: Britannia’s Birthday Bash.
