Cartoon fans will have the chance to meet one of their heroes this weekend.

Sonic The Hedgehog is paying a visit to The Entertainer in Silverburn Shopping Centre.

The much-loved character will be there on Saturday, May 28 from 10am to 4pm before he speeds off to save the day.

The meet and greet is free of charge, on a first come first serve basis, and you can take as many super snaps as you like.

Brian Wilson, general manager of Silverburn Shopping Centre store, said: “We’re excited to be welcoming families to our store to meet the lighting-fast cartoon hero, Sonic The Hedgehog! Sonic has inspired children for more than 30 years, and it’s great to see him being enjoyed by a whole new generation.

“Whether you’re three or 33, we can’t wait to see guests’ best superhero poses as they join us for an exciting family day out capturing snaps with Sonic.”
