On Saturday, December 1, the LEGO Father Christmas will arrive in town where the model will remain until January 3.
The build will be placed at Mermaid Quay’s Tacoma Square. There will be a space next to Santa Claus for the ideal photo opportunity. As well as the man himself, the sleigh will be accompanied by eight LEGO reindeer – Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen.
The incredibly detailed, full contact models, took 3 months to build. Each component is built on specially made steel pallets, and the legs of each reindeer are reinforced with metal frames. This model has been used in the past and various shopping locations, including Covent Garden in London.
