Do you still harbour a secret love for the voluptuously rumped, generously maned and brightly coloured creature that is My Little Pony? Then you’re in good company.

Denizens of all things My Little Pony descend on Bristol next week for the International My Little Pony Convention (known as Ponycon) and celebration of the toy’s 25th anniversary.

Taking place on 26-27 October, at the Redwood Hotel and Country Club, highlights of Ponycon include a celebrity pony auction. Signed ponies will be going under the hammer from stars including comedians Bill Bailey and Julian Clary, TV presenter and former British Horse Society president Noel Edmonds and pop group Right Said Fred.
