As the Christmas excitement builds be sure to visit Castle Quarter in Norwich this December to catch the extraordinary Walking in a Winter Brickland display. See a life-sized Santa and statues of his polar friends dotted around Castle Quarter – all built from more than 200,000 colourful bricks.
Castle Quarter will welcome the BRICKLIVE Christmas tour from TODAY (Monday 6th December).
An incredible display, these creative, life-sized, and brick-built Christmas figures will create a brilliant backdrop for some festive family photo opportunities. Plus, there will be amazing facts to learn about each animal too. For example, did you know that emperor penguins can dive up to 565 metres deep into the ocean? WOW!
Made from almost 200,000 bricks in total, the BRICKLIVE Walking in a Winter Brickland tour includes a 1.3m tall model of Father Christmas complete with long white beard and glasses. Santa is set to be the stand-out statue of the display and can be seen in the St John’s area (near to PureGym and bridal store Wed2Be). The life-sized creation of the big man himself took three people more than 400 hours to construct using an astonishing 43,968 bricks.
Visitors to Castle Quarter should also look out for:
A polar bear made from 100,715 bricks, located near the White Lion entrance on Level 1.
A reindeer made from 30,791 bricks, near the Cattle Market entrance on Level 2.
