PADDINGTON™ LO-COMMOTION is the perfect day out for families who love to immerse themselves in storytelling and puppetry. Coming this summer, families will be able to join Paddington in an immersive outdoor adventure staged across the beautiful grounds of Blenheim Palace.
The show will take audiences through the palace grounds on an adventure to meet their favourite characters from the Paddington stories, get on board a real locomotive and search for a ‘buried treasure'.
At the end of the 55 mins adventure, families can enjoy free arts and crafts-based activities, discover the merchandise shop, and visit Blenheim’s café.
Additionally, everyone can get an official photo with Paddington and the chance to drive a miniROVER emergency vehicle for younger audiences, aged 4 - 10, both at an additional cost to the show ticket.
Created by Histrionic Productions in collaboration with The Copyrights Group (a STUDIOCANAL company), PADDINGTON LO-COMMOTION will preview from Tuesday 27 June 2023, and play throughout the summer holidays, ending on Sunday 5 September 2023.
Adam McKenzie Wylie, Founder, Histrionic Productions said “After a hugely successful inaugural show at Blenheim Palace last summer for The Peter Rabbit Garden Adventure, Histrionic Productions is delighted to be staging PADDINGTON LO-COMMOTION at Blenheim this Summer. The combination of Paddington, a cracking new story, full of entertainment, mishap and interactivity, and the beautiful surroundings of Blenheim Palace is perfect theatrical-alchemy for this family, immersive adventure for 2023. We are delighted to be back. It's the perfect summer day out for the whole family! Sheer excitement for all ages and perfect for lovers of trains, fire engines and of course, Paddington himself.”
Heather Carter, Managing Director, Visitor Attraction at Blenheim Palace, said: “It’s fantastic to be hosting another memorable family experience at Britain’s Greatest Palace, following on from the success and popularity of Peter Rabbit last summer. We all remember Paddington’s famous encounter with HM The Queen for her Platinum Jubilee, we are delighted Paddington has chosen to visit another famous palace this summer!
Polly Emery, Senior Vice President Brand and International Licensing, The Copyrights Group (a STUDIOCANAL company) said “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Histrionic Productions for a second Paddington adventure, this time on the beautiful grounds of Blenheim Palace. PADDINGTON LO-COMMOTION is the perfect summer day out for all Paddington fans and little adventurers who share Paddington’s appetite for discovery and outdoor fun.”
The show will be directed and written by Calum Finlay and designed by Damien Stanton, both of whom collaborated with puppetry designer Jimmy Grimes.
