Classic Media has secured a partnership with one of the UK's largest theme parks - Flamingo Land in North Yorkshire - for Postman Pat and other characters from Special Delivery Service to take up residence.

Activities will include 'meet and greet' costume appearances, Pat's Special Missions and live mini shows from May until November.

The deal follows the announcement of a Postman Pat SDS live theatre tour from spring 2010.

The new series, which hit screens in September 2008, is currently running on Cbeebies, as well as being sold into 80 territories worldwide.

"We're very excited to be working with Flamingo Land," said Mat Way, global head of live entertainment at Classic Media. "Both the geographical location and family orientation of Flamingo Land are a perfect fit for Postman Pat."

Darren Coyne, park executive at Flamingo Land, added: "We are thrilled to be making Postman Pat a permanent fixture on the park this summer. It's great to be working with a brand that is beloved by both children and parents alike.

"Daytime character productions have always proved a huge success with our visitors in the past and with his daily mini show and meet and greet appearances, we have no doubt Postman Pat will be a big hit with everyone."
