Legacy of the LEGO® House lives on through annual building event
Today LEGOLAND Windsor announced that the bricks used to build James May’s LEGO® House will be going on display at the Berkshire theme park as part of an exciting annual LEGO brick building event.
Over 3 million LEGO bricks will be coming to the park so that thousands of families will have the opportunity of building with them next season. Martin Williams, Sales & Marketing Director of LEGOLAND Windsor said: “We’re thrilled that the legacy of the LEGO House can live on at the park as a giant LEGO set for the nation.”
He continued: “Our large-scale building events are always extremely popular with guests of all ages. This year hundreds of families helped build two giant mosaics featuring Bob the Builder and J.K. Rowling and only last year thousands of children and their parents came together to construct the world’s tallest LEGO brick tower.”
Fiona Wright, Marketing Director of LEGO UK said: “LEGO bricks offer endless building possibilities and this explains their universal appeal. For generations children have constructed LEGO brick models only to dismantle them and construct something completely different. The LEGO House was always being built as a temporary structure so now we’re looking forward to showcasing the ingenuity and creativity of the public by working with LEGOLAND Windsor to hold an annual building event using these historic bricks.”
More details about the first building event, held in conjunction with LEGO UK to benefit their nominated charity, The National Autistic Society, will be announced early next year.
