The life of Michael Bond CBE, author of over 200 books and creator of the much-loved character Paddington Bear, is to be celebrated at a memorial service at St Paul’s Cathedral on 14th November.
The memorial service will be attended by those that knew and loved Michael, with readings and music from friends, family and colleagues from across his 60-year career, including cast members from the newly released film, Paddington 2. A limited number of public places are available, free of charge.
Seats are available for fans and well-wishers from the public; tickets are free of charge but places are limited and can only be applied for through the official EventBrite website; eventbrite.co.uk/e/michael-bond-memorial-service-tickets-39007576712.
The family have asked for no floral tributes but would welcome donations in Michael Bond’s memory to Action Medical Research, the charity that Paddington has supported for over 40 years.
