BRICK-building fans of all ages have been taking part in a fun jungle trail through Festival Place during the Easter school holiday.

As previously reported in The Gazette, colourful life-size animals made from LEGO have been on display throughout the shopping centre.

More than 20 life-size animals, including a tiger, kangaroo, ostrich, gorilla, crocodile and warthog have been roaming the shopping centre as well as shoppers taking part in the Make and Take LEGO workshops which were held over the Easter weekend, when children were able to build their own tiger or lion face and take it home with them.

The trail, which was created by model builders Bright Bricks, was on display until Sunday with centre director Steven Connolly saying that Festival Place has been buzzing with little builders.

Mr Connolly said: “It’s been a busy few days at Festival Place and we’ve really enjoyed putting on a great interactive event that families could make a day of.

“The level of detail in the LEGO sculptures really must be seen to be believed and it’s been great to see people’s reactions to the artwork.”

People have been sharing their fun safari pictures on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #GreatBrickAdventure.

Visitors of all ages also took take selfies in an authentic safari Jeep as well as with the models made using more than one million bricks and which took the specialist team of builders 6,241 hours to create.

Bright Bricks has built a reputation with the town having previously hosted various events at the Milestones Museum, in the Leisure Park.

Over more than eight years, Bright Bricks has grown to become one of the world’s foremost independent LEGO building firms.

Festival Place’s next event is its Love Fashion weekend held on the weekend of Saturday, 28 April and Sunday, 29 April.
