A new Paddington exhibition will be opening at the British Library this summer.
Paddington: The Story of a Bear opens on Friday 9 July 2021 and will run until Sunday 31 October 2021. For more information, including how to book, click here.
The exhibition includes author Michael Bond’s own notes, his trusty typewriter and photographs which offer a glimpse into his life – as well as the many faces of Paddington that you’ve come to know and love, from original illustrations featured in the very first books to clips from the recent hit films and animated series.
Paddington’s heart-warming exploits and kind and caring nature has made him one of the world’s most loved bears since his first appearance on the pages of A Bear Called Paddington, published in 1958.
More than 60 years on, Paddington’s stories – published by HarperCollins – still delight people of all ages around the world.
