Celebrate Paddington with your family

Sessions times: 10.30 – 12.00 and 13.30 – 15.00

His heart-warming exploits and kind and caring nature have made Paddington one of the world’s most loved bears since his first appearance on the pages of A Bear Called Paddington. More than 60 years on his stories still delight people of all ages around the world.

Now fans, both big and small, can join us for a very special Paddington family day in Leeds, being held at Slung Low in Holbeck. There is a morning and an afternoon session, each full of the same interactive performances.

Dive into the Lost Property Library

Join children’s theatre company Wrongsemble to experience the Lost Property Library, inspired by Paddington’s arrival to London. Then join master storyteller Richard O’Neill to imagine what would happen if Paddington came to Leeds.

Places are limited so book in advance

Follow our booking link, where you will be asked to choose between our morning and afternoon sessions. Make sure you arrive at least 15 minutes before your session is due to start.
