LEGO Snow Globe 2013
Last year it was a huge LEGO advent calendar; the year before the world’s largest LEGO Christmas tree – this Christmas Covent Garden is home to the world’s first ever super-sized LEGO Snow Globe!
Designed and built by Duncan Titmarsh, the UK’s only Certified LEGO Professional, the impressive structure features 120,000 bricks and took him 75 days to build.
The Snow Globe has a distinctive London theme and features 14 of the UK capital’s most iconic building including London’s newest landmark, The Shard, which stands proud alongside its neighbours at a towering two metres. Other buildings include Big Ben, Nelson’s Column, The London Eye, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, and of course, Covent Garden Market Building itself. Above the London skyline, is the big man himself – Santa!
Amidst the spectacular cityscape are a number of hidden LEGO Santa Mini Figures, so Christmas shoppers can take a break from trawling the shops, see how many they can spot and win some LEGO prizes. They can also press a magic button and watch in delight as the snow starts to fall on the LEGO scene.
