The 2018 committee are pleased to be working together to organise UK PonyCon's fifteenth annual event. Get to know us through our bios below.
Maz - Chairperson
Since first discovering the My Little Pony fandom in 2013, Maz is now excited to help organise this year's UK PonyCon. When he's not working hard for the con, he's sleeping, eating or playing with computers. His favourite pony is Fluttershy.
Sparkler - Art and Design Lead and Vice-Chair
(also super secret spy agent)
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.
Midnightdynasty - Events Lead
(Princess Luna is my patronus)
Midnight Dynasty, also known as Bexi is looking forward to leading the events team for a second year! A fan
of all generations, in particular G2, but is most fond of Princess Luna. Also has a weird obsession with
chocolate milk and glitter... lots of glitter...
Amlaur - Events Assistant
(MLP is life, MLP is love)
Pegasister who is a collector of all things pony. Rekindled her love of pony when she first watched FiM in
2013 and has become involved with the fandom since. First attended UKPC in 2014. Committee since 2017. Loves
to have fun and make new friends.
CherrySparks - Events Assistant
I have been in the pony fandom since 2010, and I am a big fan of card games and just animation in general. Hope you all enjoy the con!
Daisyd - Events Assistant
Daisy is the human equivalent of Grumpy Cat. She spends a lot of time saying "NO". The only things she doesn't say "NO' to are ponies, chocolate, more ponies, and UK PonyCon.
Sarahthrel (Saz) - Events Assistant
(mind of a pony, heart of a duck)
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.
Vikki - Events Assistant
Hampshirebrony - Operations Lead
Hampshirebrony has been on the convention circuit since 2012. He is the one who knocks.
Metaphor - Volunteering Lead
A Brony since mid 2011 and having joined the committee in 2017, Metaphor is currently responsible for organising volunteer support for all the events at UK PonyCon and ensuring that said volunteers have a fun and enjoyable time.
Guiding Breeze - Treasurer
(Princess of the exchequer)
A fan of My Little Pony since 2012, Guiding Breeze joined the Committee in 2017 as Treasurer and managed to survive the first yet to return this year. As well as looking after all the bits, they also help with stallholder management and venue accessibility.
Irish O'Conner - Comms Lead
(If you don't see me with my phone in my hand, that's not me)
A new member to the committee, Irish O'Conner took the role of Communications Leader with excitement! (and truthfully, much fear). He looks after all the social media websites, and he notifies you about what the committee has in store.You would most likely see him running around con, making announcements and posting on all the websites with his phone.
We also have a number of volunteer admins for the UK PonyCon Convention
Archer - UK PonyCon Forum Admin
(No1 Derpy Fan)
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 ^_~
Pinkkittywinks - UK PonyCon forum Admin
(UK PonyCon Fairy Godmother )
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.
New Committee applications happen around the end of the year, but we are always after help before and during the convention. Please see our Volunteers page for more details.
