Absolutely bricktacular: World-famous Manchester Christmas markets immortalised in Lego-HO-HO!

By Dean Wilkins

Manchester Christmas markets have been recreated brick by brick in Lego-ho-ho!

Designers painstakingly assembled 23,000 pieces into an exact replica of 100 of the world famous festive huts, the historic town hall on Albert Square and completed it with the iconic Father Christmas.

Lego enthusiasts will get the chance to get up close and personal to the stunning set which is on display at The Trafford Centre.

The models capture the seasonal cheer perfectly with dozens of Lego merrymakers enjoying German bratwursts, mulled wine and present shopping.

Staff at Legoland Discovery Centre worked tirelessly for weeks in the run up to Christmas to put together the mini markets.

A spokesman for Legoland Discovery Centre said: “Hundreds of tiny minifigure guests can be seen enjoying one of the biggest and best Christmas markets in Europe in this spectacular recreation.

“Guests travel far and wide to see the spectacle markets, and this amazing replica provides Lego fans, young and old, a fantastic bit of fun.”

It will be on display at the Christmas Bricktacular exhibition, which runs until January 2.

Located in Barton Square at intu Trafford Centre, the Legoland Discovery Centre is made up of a series of interactive displays.

Featuring a whole host of exciting attractions including an amazing recreation of the North West’s most iconic buildings, the centre provides hours of fun for LEGO fans.
