Bring your upcoming event to life with a Paddington Bear costume

Paddington has been delighting British families for decades, and his broad appeal has also won him legions of fans worldwide.  

He has been reimagined time and time again in stop motion, animation and most recently in CGI, but his trademark mannerisms and habits remain the same. With his marmalade sandwiches and Wellington Boots, he’s become something of a cultural British staple, and what better way to celebrate his upcoming 60th anniversary in 2018 than by inviting him to your next event? As a character who has been on our screens for decades, Paddington has fans both young and old, meaning fans of all ages will have smiles on their faces when greeted by a friendly  Paddington Bear Mascot.   


Kids and grown-ups will love a Paddington costume

Paddington is an easily accessible, friendly and recognisable character, making him a great choice for high profile events especially.

If you’re looking to throw an event that is quintessentially English or a celebration of British pop culture for example, having Paddington there is a great way to set the tone. He is ideal for events all year round, whether it’s a Christmas shopping event or a summer fete. At Rainbow Productions, we provide official Paddington Bear Costume hire, making it easy for you to create a genuine experience for event-goers. We don’t hire out our costumes, but rather send professionals with training to wear the costume and assume the character at your event. With a brand as established as Paddington Bear, it’s important to ensure the reputation isn’t tarnished in any way. You can have complete confidence that our mascots will assume Paddington’s mannerisms and be friendly and welcoming at all times when interacting with families.

At Rainbow Productions, we have over 30 years of experience sending individuals out across the UK in officially licensed costumes, so you can have every confidence that you are working with the best when one of our staff arrives at your event.
