Paddington interactive experience heads to LondonThe Paddington Bear Experience

Paddington Bear is making his grand return this year, but not in the way you'd expect.

Anchoring down in London's County Hall, the iconic marmalade-muncher headlines 'The Paddington Bear Experience', an interactive set-up for all the family unfolding across 26,000 square ft.

Tickets aren't on sale just yet (though fans can sign up on the website for priority access), but attendees can look forward to being thrown into the thick of the action as you must help Paddington and The Browns prepare for a very special day.

"Step into the world of Paddington and become immersed in some of the most iconic locations, culminating in a Windsor Gardens extravaganza," teased a description.

"This multi-sensory experience incorporates groundbreaking design, live performance, and video to capture the hearts of the entire family from ages 4-94."

Themed food, beverages and merchandise will be available too.

As for the brains behind this operation, Katie Lyons (Peaky Blinders: The Rise) wrote the adventure, while Rebecca Brower (Doctor Who: Time Fracture) designed it and Luke Swaffield (Saw: The Escape Experience) crafted the soundscape.

Back in Paddington's life on the big screen, voice actor Ben Whishaw recently suggested that the third movie (titled Paddington in Peru) is nowhere near the filming stage.

"I haven't read this script and I don't even know when we're due to shoot it," he said. "I thought it would be happening by now, but I don't know.

"It's gone silent in the way that sometimes these things do. Maybe that just means they're still working on it, or maybe it means it's not happening, or you just don't know."
