Windsor Gardens’ most famous resident returns in
roaring fashion in this delightful seasonal sequel.
Paddington is now living happily as a member of the
Brown Family and is adored by nearly everyone in
the community. With his dear Aunt’s 100th birthday
fast approaching, he decides to get her something
extra special: a unique pop-up book of London.
Unfortunately, he is not the only one looking to get
their sticky paws on the valuable book and when
it is mysteriously stolen, Paddington innocently
falls afoul of a dastardly scheme and is framed for
the theft. Accused of a crime he didn’t commit and
facing jail, the unwaveringly optimistic bear must
clear his name.
A magnificent cast, from it’s loveable leads right
down to one villainous and brilliantly narcissistic
Hugh Grant, truly bring this story to life, ensuring a
wonderful tribute to Paddington’s creator Michael
Bond, who sadly passed away in June.
Utterly sweet and fantastically funny, Paddington
and his pals are sure to steal a heart or two this
Christmas. Come in from the cold and bask in its
warmth. Marmalade sandwiches all round. (research

sequel getting past the gainsayers.
