BRICKLIVE is Coming to Paddington

PaddingtonNow Business Improvement District has partnered with BRICKLIVE Group to bring life size brick models from the Paddington™ franchise to London. The models will be displayed as a colourful curated collection with free entry to the public in Norfolk Square Gardens from the 23 to 31st July 2022.

The world’s favourite marmalade-loving bear will be joined by Aunt Lucy, Uncle Pastuzo and others.

This free attraction is perfect for Paddington and Brick lovers alike as it showcases the iconic bear in a completely new environment.

A launch event will take place on Saturday 23 July including funfair rides, face painting, balloon artists and much more.

‘BRICKLIVE is delighted that PaddingtonNow BID is hosting our Paddington models in Norfolk Square Gardens in London this summer, it is the first time that the models will be on show in London and the event is undoubtedly going to be a huge success.’

David Ciclitira, Chairman Live Company

‘The BID organises incredible events in Paddington to support the business community and drive footfall to the area. The Paddington Bear™ exhibition built by BRICKLIVE is sure to enliven the area over peak tourist and school holidays season and we hope to see the area in full swing this summer after a difficult couple of years.’

Chris Peers, BID Manager

‘Copyrights is thrilled to see this trail coming to Paddington so fans can live a great Paddington Bear experience discovering the life size brick models of their favourite characters and enjoying a good time at the Paddington Café in the station.’

Sophie Kopaczynski, CEO The Copyrights Group

About Paddington™

For over 60 years, British-born writer Michael Bond has delighted readers all over the world with his stories about Paddington, the bear from Peru, famous for his love of marmalade. The kindness and humour in the stories appeal to children and adults alike, ensuring Paddington’s enduring popularity from one generation to the next.

HarperCollins Children’s books have published Paddington’s adventures continuously since October 1958 when, as William Collins, they first introduced A Bear Called Paddington to the world. ​Since then, Paddington’s adventures have been adapted several times for television and at the end of 2014 Paddington made his debut onto the big screen, a further film Paddington 2 followed in 2017 with a third in the works. The movies were produced by Studiocanal, part of the international content and media group Vivendi. In 2020, a brand-new Paddington TV series designed for a pre-school audience, The Adventures of Paddington launched on Nickelodeon, introducing him to a whole new set of fans.
