My app is receiving date/times as UTC and storing them in a DATETIME field. Subsequently I want to display them to the client in his local time. I know his time zone.

So I’ve installed the time zone tables and to test I have today (early December 2019) run this query
SELECT CONVERT_TZ('2019-01-01 12:00:00', 'UTC', 'Europe/London')
It correctly returns '2019-01-01 12:00:00'.

If I then advance my PC’s date to, say, 1 May 2019 it still returns '2019-01-01 12:00:00' whereas I would have expected it to return '2019-01-01 13:00:00', ie. an hour on.

What am I doing wrong or not understanding?

Windows 7, MySQL 5.6
