    This festive season, M&S has teamed up with a treasured British icon to create a truly special Christmas - as Paddington is unveiled as the star of Marks & Spencer's Campaign for 2017, which will launch with the hashtag, #LoveTheBear.

    The campaign retains the philosophy of M&S' ‘Spend it Well' brand platform launched earlier this year - encouraging customers to focus on the people, experiences and things that matter to them most, something that is never more important than at Christmas.
    Paddington, who is named after the famous area of London where M&S is also based, will take a lead role in helping the retailer create a series of special moments for its customers and the communities it serves through partnership activity.

    For the first time M&S will host a dedicated campaign shop to support its Christmas advertising campaign. Bespoke signage will lead customers to The Paddington Shop - housing over 90 themed products, the majority in kidswear, and of course Paddington's favourite marmalade will be available in M&S Foodhalls. In another first, the iconic bear will be the first ever film character to star in the M&S Christmas windows.
