I really really really want to go, but it is kinda expensive and mum would never take me and my one brony friend to Manchester D: hope you all have fun if you're going! I'd love to meet other English deviants D: and bronies
I'm in the exact same position as you... It takes 4 hours to get to Manchester from where I am, and as much as my parents love me, that's not happening. DX If there were a con more locally, I'd be there in a heartbeat.
BUCK (Brony UK Convention) will be held in Manchester on the 18th and 19th August 2012 at the Bridgewater Hall. This event will be a giant party of games, fun, music and cupcakes
The venue is right in the middle of Manchester and so it is easy to get to by train (Oxford Street, Victoria, Deansgate and Piccadilly stations), car (large NCP parking next door), bus (Piccadilly and City Centre stations), coach (the National Express station) or even aeroplane (Manchester International Airport has great links to the city.)
All ages can attend: Under 12s are free; 12-14 accompanied by an adult. Web link is [link] - more info and ticket registration coming soon!
