Paddington™ to greet Bury’s late night shoppers...

Late night Christmas shoppers visiting Bury St Edmunds town centre on Thursday December 14 could find themselves face to face with a very special bear.

Paddington, the star of ‘Paddington 2’ currently showing at the local Abbeygate Cinema and Cineworld, will be meeting shoppers in Bury St Edmunds as he makes personal appearances at intervals between 5pm and 7pm. Parking in the town will be free after 4pm.

Located outside Moyses Hall Museum on Cornhill, visitors will also be able to see the baby reindeer and its mother who were a huge hit at the Our Bury St Edmunds Christmas Lights Switch On event earlier this month. There is no charge to meet Paddington, who is also currently the star of the Marks and Spencer Christmas advertisement, or to see the reindeer.

Chief Executive of Our Bury St Edmunds Mark Cordell said: “I’m thrilled that Paddington is visiting Bury St Edmunds and we will be stocking up on marmalade in case he fancies one of his favourite sandwiches during his visit. There will be opportunities for people to take photos and we’re excited for Paddington to meet as many of his fans as he possibly can.”

Many of the shops will be open late that evening and the vintage dodgems and carousel, part of the Our Bury St Edmunds and Town Council’s attractions at arc shopping centre will also be open until 7.30pm. Santa will be in his log cabin grotto in Charter Square until 5pm.
