Once a year, there’s an Online Festival. Hosted on Facebook, it’s an excellent opportunity for collectors and bear makers from all parts of the world to come together. The Kensington Festivals feature around 80 stands each and thousands of teddy bears for sale, with prices ranging from a few pounds to over £1,000. Both antique and modern bears will be there, plus clothes and accessories as well as bear-making supplies. A teddy bear hospital is often on hand, offering treatment to well-loved and injured bears.

Thank you for a fantastic show. So well organised. You have such a fantastic team! It is a must do for EVERYONE. And if you are in 🇬🇧LONDON🇬🇧 you must go and visit their Festival!

I flew in for the event from Northern Ireland. So worth it. Fantastic day and so much to see. We arrived just after 10.30am and hours later we were still there. We met some amazing artists and loved every minute of it. The range of bears, books, supplies and advice was endless. Pure heaven.
