Happy 60th Birthday to Paddington

Enjoying a marmalade sandwich

The very first book featuring this much-loved character, entitled “A Bear Called Paddington”, was published on 13th October 1958. The 60 years have flown along, with a whole series of Paddington books, tv programmes and films.


Paddington was there to help his author, Michael Bond, celebrate his 90th birthday in 2016.

Now it’s our turn to celebrate Paddington’s.
