The station concourse will have new graphics with seasonal decorations and, as Christmas approaches, the Christmas tree will have some of The Beano magic as well.

“A new Beano annual is always an event, and each

year we create all new content and have more pages than many other annuals in the market,” says Tim Collins, head of brands, DC Thomson. “The 2015 annual looks fantastic, and we have every confidence that it will be a massive hit again this Christmas. There is a huge affection for this iconic brand in the U.K. and after more than a year in the making, we’re really excited to be able to finally unveil this exclusive partnership with St. Pancras International to support the nation’s favorite annual. A popular travel and shopping destination, the station sees thousands of children and families visit the station every day, so it’s a real privilege to be able to offer a unique Beano experience for young and new fans of all ages at such a key period.”
