The organisers of Sunnycon posted this message on their site regarding the tickets:

With SunnyCon now just over a week away we are very excited. We have sold just fewer than 500 tickets so far and it's shaping up to be a fantastic turn out for a first time convention. On Tuesday 20th March we will stop online ticket sales to make sure everyone has their tickets in time. However tickets will still be on sale at the venue. From Saturday 17th you will be able to pick up in person from Crowtree. Remember you can also arrange a special pick up if you live in Sunderland just e-mail to arrange ticket pick up. Remember our allocation is 1000 for the event so we still have just over 500 tickets left for sale so at this moment in time tickets are being made available for purchase on the doors. This can change depending upon sales however we will keep you updated on Facebook and Twitter with how sales are going.
According to SunnyCon's facebook page, tickets will be on sale on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3.30 p.m.
