The Lego 2015 Christmas Build Puffs into Covent Garden Piazza
It’s that time of year again, when the LEGO Company fires up our imaginations and reveals its annual Christmas build to get everyone in mood for Christmas.
LEGO UK is also celebrating its 5th year of building a Christmas spectacular in London. The LEGO Christmas story started with a 30m LEGO Christmas Tree in 2011 with subsequent builds in Covent Garden including a Giant Advent Calendar, a walk-through Snow Globe featuring a snowy London scene of iconic buildings and last year Santa’s Sleigh & Reindeer. So what festive treat, does LEGO have in store this year…?
The LEGO Santa Express puffed into the Covent Garden Piazza this morning to add some Christmas magic. Made with 500,000 LEGO bricks, it features three carriages, the engine and driver’s cabin, a carriage full of presents and the final carriage is delivering the Christmas Tree. The Christmas Elf will be in charge and takes position in the driving seat. The LEGO Santa Express is complete with special effects including smoke from the funnel, sounds and lights.
Once again, this impressive build was designed by the man who probably has the best job in the country, the UK’s only LEGO Certified Professional, Duncan Titmarsh. The masterpiece has been in development for the last 3 months created by Duncan and a team of 8 builders.
You will find The LEGO Santa Express on the North/East Covent Garden Piazza from 26th November to 29th December 2015.
