Description

Northern Ireland’s only GIANT LEGO® brick wetland animal trail returns to Castle Espie this spring!

Follow the trail to find these GIANT SCULPTURES hiding alongside some of their real-life cousins.

As well as the trail, take part in the unique and popular interactive LEGO® brick workshops, perfect for LEGO fans – young and old!

The giant models, some up to twelve times the size of the real wetland animals that inspired them, include :-

  • Flavia the Andean flamingo - a riot of pink bricks
  • Emily the Emperor dragonfly - resplendently perched on a LEGO brick reed
  • Benedict the Bewick’s swan - magnificently stretching his brick wings

Over 254,000 LEGO bricks were used to make the wetland animal family, and it took 1,561 hours to make all 14 giant wetland characters, with Fred the Frog taking the longest time to make at a whopping 244 hours!

As well as the trail, take part in the unique and popular interactive LEGO® brick workshops, perfect for LEGO fans – young and old! Suitable for ages 4 and over. Children must be accompanied by adults and vice-versa! (The cost of the workshop for each builder is £10, but an adult supervisor can watch for free).

LEGO® brick workshops take place every weekend between 29 February and 5 April, and every day during the Easter school holidays from Monday 6 to Sunday 19 April, starting at 12pm and 2pm.
