A royal celebration with Paddington Bear

On Monday 16 October, we hosted a very special event with STUDIOCANAL at Paddington Station for the young beneficiaries of Their Royal Highnesses' Charities Forum. The event was attended by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry and the star of the film himself, Paddington Bear, was there to lend a hand too.

Guests were welcomed into Paddington Station by Paddington Bear himself and a calypso band featured in the forthcoming film, Paddington 2, before they embarked on a special trip aboard Belmond British Pullman train, which appears in the film, powered by the 60163 Tornado steam engine! On board the train, guests were treated to a Paddington themed Afternoon Tea which they enjoyed whilst taking part in a variety of activities and met children’s television presenters.
