The event will include a special family screening of Paddington 2, available to stream as part of Amazon’s Prime membership subscription from the 12th July; an intimate reading and Q&A with Ant Middleton on his Sunday Times best-selling book ‘First Man In: Leading from the Front’; and will culminate in an exclusive gig headlined by British music icons, Take That.
