Sonic Charity Event at Retailer GAME in Hull Tomorrow

SSMB member Hogfather has reported in a topic at the forum that Sonic the Hedgehog will be appearing at a UK GAME store in Hull’s St. Stephens Shopping Centre from 11am to meet fans and help the store raise some money for charity.

Hogfather queried with the shopping centre’s management regarding whether or not you can take photographs at the event, since the centre is normally strictly against picture taking, and they told him that picture taking is allowed for a small donation.

Of course you can take photographs of Sonic!! For a small donation at least it is for charity.

Have fun.


Centre Receptionist and Administrator

No word on which charity the store is raising money for, but we expect it’s for a good cause.

If you plan to head to the fundraiser, you can find help for getting there at St. Stephens Shopping Centre’s website and GAME’s website. If you manage to grab some pictures or video from the fundraiser and don’t mind sharing them, send them in to us at and we’ll post them in a blog post on the site.


  1. From Emerald Hill. To Emerald Hull. That hog sure does get around.

    I’m oddly looking forward to going, despite also being a tad aprehensive about taking pictures even though I’ve got email confirmation/permission that you can do.

  2. By Sonic, they mean “A member of the staff in a costume that makes Sonic look obese.”

    1. That is part of the reason why I’m going. The last time Sonic came to Hull, the costume was the worst costume I had ever seen in my life, the guy in it actually said “Do you have the time, because I need a cig” when I said hello to him.

      But I hope that they at least try to put on a good show, since it’s half term lots of kids will want to be amazed.
