Meet Paddington on Portobello

Paddington Bear loves a celebration, a good story and most of all…marmalade. Come to Portobello and Golborne Market on Saturday 20th June when the world’s most famous and best loved bear will help celebrate the market’s 150th anniversary. Unfortunately, the Paddington storytelling events at Tavistock Square are now sold out. But you can still get involved by taking part in the Portobello Marmalade Trail. Collect a ‘lost bear’ luggage label from Tavistock Square or one of the following shops; The Notting Hill Bookshop, The London Tree House, POP, Akessons, HoneyJam or Biscuiteers. Then follow the trail around Portobello (maps will be available on the day and lists of all participating shops or marmalade stops will be distributed with the luggage labels), collect six stamps and you will have the chance to enter a raffle and win some glorious Paddington kit and scrummy marmalade themed prizes. The Marmalade Trail starts tomorrow and will continue through to Sunday. The raffle will be drawn on Monday.
