The Harvey Centre in Harlow is stocking up on their marmalade reserves in anticipation of a visit from a bear-y special guest.

Paddington will be making a trip to meet and greet Harlow families at The Harvey Centre this Easter. On Saturday the 13th of April, the nation’s most charming bear will be appearing during story time sessions, led by a narrator, at 11 am, 12 pm, 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm in The Terrace. He will also be meeting his adoring fans at 2.30pm.

 There will be opportunities for customers to pose for photos with Paddington, so they are encouraged to bring a camera to capture a memento of this unique occasion. Paddington is sure to take away plenty of anecdotes himself, to add to his scrapbook.

 Seeing Paddington is open to everyone and is free to enjoy.

 Bryan Young, Centre Manager at The Harvey Centre says, “The appeal of Paddington spans the generations and we are sure his visit will be well received by everyone and we look forward to welcoming Harlow families to the centre this Easter.”
