Illustrator, Paul Kidby said: “It has been a huge honour to illustrate this set of stamps to commemorate 40 years of Discworld. I am delighted to finally be able to tell people about it as it has been a big secret to keep! It’s a wonderful celebration of Terry’s ongoing legacy and continued popularity.”

London County Hall will host large-scale interactive show The Paddington Bear Experience later this year. Trains between London Paddington and Bristol Temple Meads will be diverted, not stopping at Didcot Parkway, Swindon or Chippenham. The Paddington Bear Experience will be directed by Immersive Octopus, written by Katie Lyons, designed by Rebecca Brower, with costume design by Stewart J Charlesworth, lighting design by Terry Cook, sound design by Luke Swaffield for Autograph, and video design by Novak. UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. Across more than 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, to build a better world for everyone.During the closure, most GWR services will start or terminate at Reading instead of London Paddington, with limited train services to/from Ealing Broadway. A reduced Elizabeth line service will run between Ealing Broadway and Maidenhead. Paddington has teamed up with UNICEF to send parcels full of presents to vulnerable children around the world. Every item you choose to put in your virtual gift box (Paddington’s Parcel) will be sent to a child in need. Paddington’s parcels offer warm hats and scarves, pencils, school books and vaccines to keep children happy, healthy and safe. And to say thank you, UNICEF will send you or a loved one a special message from Paddington! During the closure, the railway will be closed between Paddington and Ealing Broadway, so it will be possible to catch a train at Ealing Broadway on Christmas Eve and on Wed 27th December, but the station will likely be very crowded and the train services will be less frequent.

Sir Terry Pratchett, OBE (1948–2015) is regarded as one of the UK’s greatest fantasy writers. His defining work is the Discworld series, which spans 41 novels that have been translated into over 40 languages, with more than a hundred million copies sold worldwide. October 2021 – Paddington, the much-loved children’s character, has teamed up with UNICEF to bring exciting opportunities for children to learn all about the lives of their peers around the world. For over 60 years, British-born writer Michael Bond has delighted readers all over the world with his stories about Paddington, the bear from Peru, famous for his love of marmalade. The kindness and humour in the stories appeal to children and adults alike, ensuring Paddington’s enduring popularity from one generation to the next. HarperCollins Children’s books have published Paddington’s adventures continuously since 13th October 1958 when, as William Collins, they first introduced A Bear Called Paddington to the world.Paddington station will be closed on Sunday 24th Dec (Christmas Eve) and reopens on Thursday 28th Dec. So for Christmas getaways using Paddington station, you will need to travel by the end of Saturday 23rd December 2023. Like millions of children and families around the world, Paddington was forced to flee his home and build a new life far away from those he loved. His stories and adventures exemplify kindness, tolerance and perseverance in the face of adversity, making him the perfect champion for children’s rights. Some trains will also run between London Paddington and Bath Spa – not stopping at Didcot Parkway, Swindon or Chippenham. The stamps include characters Rincewind, The Librarian, Granny Weatherwax, Sam Vimes, and Great A’Tuin, as well as specially commissioned artworks of Death and Mort, Tiffany Aching and Moist von Lipwig by Terry Pratchett’s illustrator of choice, Paul Kidby.
