LEGO® fans, you’re in for some fun as the BRICKLIVE® Outer Space Trail is coming to Leicester as part of One Giant Leap, which runs from 11 – 20 October. The special event programme, which has been designed to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, willl also include the return of Museum of the Moon, retro arcade games and a stunning outdoor projection show called Overview Effect.
A highlight of the One Giant Leap programme will delight youngsters and inspire nostalgia in older visitors as the BRICKLIVE® Outer Space Trail brings 15 amazing models containing LEGO® bricks to venues around the city centre. Visitors will be able to see reconstructions of the rockets that took us to the moon and stand side-by-side with famous astronauts. The tallest model – the SLS Mars Rocket – stands at an incredible 314cm tall and contains over 48,000 bricks!
The models will make up a trail around the city which can be followed using the LoyalFree app. Each model will have its own unique QR code which can be scanned on the app, with a chance to win one of a selection of prizes – the more QR codes scanned, the more chances to win!
The out-of-this-world programme has received funding from BID Leicester, Arts Council England, Leicester Cathedral and Leicester City Council.
