By Katie Ferguson

We're very pleased with all the entries, they were truly chilling! Been hiding under my bed for the last few weeks, I swear. All the ghosts and monsters are coming out later today. A real big thanks to all who entered! I wish I could send you all a prize! But sadly I don't have £80 spare to spend on Amazon gift vouchers. The winner, chosen by a vote of judges! Congrats to Katie Ferguson! You'll be receiving your e-gift card by email later tonight!

A happy Halloween to all!

You can find all the banners after the break, in no particular order.

Why don't you guys go to meets?


So for you avid readers of Equestria Daily, you might have noticed they recently held a poll on meet-up groups. With my involvement in Manechester and helping run meets for over a year now and for being a massive fan of such events way before the Brony craze even began I though i'd analyse/critique the results of the poll. Check out my thoughts after the break!

Thoughts on Alicorn Fluttershy


Ok, so lets take the bait. Those of you who are aware, the above image has been floating about for a few days now. That and a tweet from M. A. Larson. Now, lets for a second imagine this is legit and season 4 will see Fluttershy becoming an alicorn. I'm surprised I haven't seen more drama revolving around this, maybe people have just accepted it since Twilicorn, but I think we'll likely see quite a bit of drama surface if any more info turns up. Join us after the break for my thoughts on this.

BronyScot Event Announced!



Good evening fillies and gentlecolts! Tonight we are pleased to bring you the first official announcement of the BronyScot Event. As you can guess with our name, we are planning an event in Scotland! That's the Country above England! Specifically we're looking into a selection of venues in the wonderful city of Edinburgh. The date is set to be 2014.

I'm the Communication and PR manager for BronyScot and I am joined by several others who are hard at work planning and organising this event. I'm sure they'll all make themselves known over the next few months.

We would much appreciate it if you could take a little time filling out this simple survey we have prepared.


Make sure to give us as much feedback as possible. This event is mostly intended for Scottish and Northern based bronies, but we'd love to see a few of you Southern guys make it up as well.

If you're wondering about that lovely filly up there, that's Nessie! Our Mascot, designed by one of our event organisers and designer DarryJamStain.

As coms manager I'll be able to answer any questions you might have, post them below or email me at rothstein@bronies.org.uk.
If you want to get on board and help out, don't hesitate to ask! UKoE Thread can be found here!

Thanks for reading and if you can spread the word as much as possible! Stay tuned for more information!

Nightmare Night Banner contest!


It's almost everyone's favourite holiday and to celebrate we're hosting a contest to get people into the spin of things!

All entries will be taken into consideration and the winner will be chosen by a few admins. What's up for grabs as a prize? Yes, we actually have a prize sorted out for this one! The winner will receive a £10 Amazon gift e-voucher to spend on anything from Amazon, be it Pony merch, books, music or whatever. Depending on the response to this contest we might add more prizes.

Submit all entries to rothstein@bronies.org.uk or PM me on the UKoE.
Make sure to add "Bronies UK Halloween Contest" as the subject line. I will reply to all emails within 24 hours, if I haven't, please re-submit.

The deadline is Wednesday October 30th!

  • Dimensions must be within the limits of 1000 x  335 pixels.

Good Luck everyone!

Three years of Bronies - Thirty of Ponies!


It's kind of shocking how quickly time has gone shooting by these past few years. On October 10th 2010 the 4th generation of My Little Pony aired on American Television, little did we know that this was the start of quite the phenomenon. Now three years down the line we've grown into this amazingly huge fandom, with thousands of fans from across the globe. I think we're all really excited for what Season 4 might bring come the end of November, I certainly wish November would get here sooner.

But yes, on to the main topic of this post. Three wonderful years of MLP:FiM, Bronyism and thirty years in total of MLP as a franchise. This sort of mile stone needs a celebration to fit. I hope you guys all have something splendid planned for Thursday, not sure what I'll be doing, but chances are it'll involve watching a few episodes, haven't seen an episode in ages! Whatever you've got planned, we'd love to hear! Comment below or hit that submit button!

Summer Sun Celebration Review!


Oh woah, where do I even start. This right here, the wonderful music festival that if it had ended here i'd have still been satisfied with the entire weekend. I think everyone else would agree, this is what set BUCK apart from most other conventions out there. There's not really much words can do to express the experience, not to the full extent, really was something you had to have been there for.

Let's start from the beginning, we were all there in the Moon Under Water after filming in the Waldorf for the National Geographic Documentary. For those familiar with the Manechester Muffin meets, the Moon under water is quite a large venue. We took out the entire upstairs, it was a beautiful moment I think, so many bronies all sat down, cheering, eating and drinking in preparation for the upcoming entertainment. Shockingly enough the staff were still able to serve us within a few minutes of ordering, which I have to say, kudos to them.

Continue after the break!
