A final word from myself: some of you may or may not know that I have been a member of staff at Summer of Sonic for the past 5 years, but sadly I will not be able to staff or attend this year’s event. If you are a Sonic fan then please make sure you attend Summer of Sonic as it has been one of the greatest experiences of my life and has enabled me to meet loads of new people and make a whole heap of new friends.

Good luck to the team this year (and the chap/chapette who gets to take on my job!) and I’m sure it will be as brilliant as ever!
