This Saturday see’s the return of ‘Weston Super Sonic’, the South West’s first Sonic fan Convention here in the UK.
Brought to life by the creative minds of community members Claire ‘Rurifuu’ Cameron and Jono ‘JonoD’ Dixon, the event once again aims to bring the awesome community together in one place this Saturday (16th January 2016), and will see many descending on the quiet seaside town of Weston-Super-Mare once again for another fun filled gathering of friends and fans alike, not only to celebrate the Blue Blur, but to also celebrate to creativeness of the vastly diverse fanbase.
Following a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised over £1600 in donations, the event will be taking place on Weston-Super-Mare’s Grand Pier, home not only to the large event space, but also one of the largest and newest purpose built arcades in the country, which attendees will have full access to, which proved to be popular with last year’s attendees.
The event this year is packed out with activities and contests for fans to enjoy. Art fans can enjoy special panels and demonstrations from special industry veterans (such as a live airbrush demonstration from Duncan Gutteridge), or get involved with stage events such as ‘Ask Uncle Poxxy: Live!’
As you may have gathered from the above, a number of special guests will be joining the show. These range from great community names to respected industry artists. For example, iTunes’ number 1 downloaded Sonic the Hedgehog podcast ‘The Sonic Show’ will be in attendance, as well as popular Source Filmmaker animator SonicpoX. From the industry, there’s Sonic the Comic artist Ferran Rodríguez, as well as Duncan Gutteridge: Another classic Sonic the Hedgehog artist whose works have been seen on everything from calendars to neckties.
The whole day, as well as its events are also being broadcast live online, courtesy of The Sonic Show. This stream will allow those who may not have been lucky enough to secure a ticket a chance to watch and stay up to date with what’s going on.
