Marwell Zoo Lego Bricks

The Great Brick Safari: An Interactive Experience...

The Guide 2 Surrey 15/06/2017 Staff Writer Marwell Wildlife in Hampshire is about to become the first UK zoo to host a collection of giant LEGO brick animals. This summer over 80 stunning sculptures, representing 25 different species, will be installed at the Hampshire attraction, offering an exciting and unique trail to connect children with nature. Over 2 million bricks will be used to make the sculptures, which are being created by Bordon-based LEGO building company Bright Bricks. Among them will be a 1.5 tonne elephant, a life size Bengal tiger and a trio of Giant panda cubs. Other sculptures will be inspired by Marwell’s own diverse collection of animals, with a red ruffed lemur, a warthog and a mob of meerkats all featuring on the trail. Inside the Great Brick Building Zone there will be 3 different activities, running every day throughout the event from 11am – 4pm. For £3 you’ll be able to build your own mini LEGO person to take home. As well as this there will be 2 free of charge activities – ‘March of the penguins’ where you will be able to build a LEGO...
