A live-action animated comedy, the film is a sequel to the 2014 "Paddington" — and, reportedly, even better.
Paddington, having now settled in with the Brown family, has become a popular member of the community, offering people emotional support in various ways. With Aunt Lucy's 100th birthday coming up he wants to find the perfect present for her. He sees a unique pop-up book of London in Mr. Gruber's antique shop and embarks on a series of odd jobs, saving his wages in order to buy it. Sadly, the book is stolen. Paddington gives chase but the culprit escapes and our bear is framed, arrested and subsequently jailed. Mr. Gruber and the Browns believe in Paddington's innocence and set out to unmask the real thief.
The film has an all-star cast, in both live action and voiceovers, including a brilliant Hugh Grant in one of his best ever roles.
Also stars: Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Julie Walters and the voice of Ben Wishaw as Paddington.
Doors open at 7.00pm; show starts at 7.30pm in the village hall. Refreshments are on sale. Tickets £7 (accompanied children £3.50) are available at the door. Don't forget we have our annual ticket for only £50 — saving you £20.
