Paddington Family Fun Day at East Lancashire RailwayShekina Rose, Families Editor
“I’ll never be like other people, but that’s alright because I’m a bear…”
He’s coming… Our favourite bear, all the way to Lancashire from deepest, darkest Peru! Paddington Bear – wellies, marmalade and all! First stop: Lancashire, where he will be the star of the show at the Paddington Family Fun Day at East Lancashire Railway, taking place for one day only on Saturday 13 May.
Kids and grownups alike will be mesmerised as they are greeted at Bury Street Station by the famous, marmalade-loving, extremely polite bear himself. All through the day there will be plenty of photo opportunities to get some cute selfies with Paddington to take home, and a variety of fun activities too, including funfair rides, face paints and arts and crafts activities if you fancy getting creative!
Choo Choo! Also included in the main ticket price: an unforgettable train ride on an amazing heritage steam or diesel train, taking you on a stunning journey right through the beautiful Irwell Valley on the East Lancashire Railway. Sit back, relax, and watch the world go by while getting a taste of history too.
