The five pop-up book installations will appear at landmarks and attractions across London.
The Paddington Pop Up was unveiled at London Bridge City by London Mayor Sadiq Khan and Paddington 2 filmmakers and cast members, including Hugh Bonneville, Simon Farnaby, Rosie Allison, Alexandra Ferguson-Derbyshire, Michael Bond’s daughter Karen Jankel, and local school children.
There will be a treasure hunt across the city from pop-up book to pop-up book to discover a secret word. Families will then be able to enter a competition here to win a Paddington Afternoon tea journey for all the family, aboard the iconic Belmond British Pullman train.
David Heyman, Producer of Paddington 2, commented: “I am delighted that the public will soon be able to step into the world of Paddington’s Pop-up London – a city which is at the very heart of the film and Michael Bond’s beloved books. These pop-up book installations invite visitors not only from London but all over the world to join Paddington in celebrating this wonderful, open-hearted city.”
