The first “Brick Live Christmas” is a challenge of the Grimaldi Forum to liven up the holiday season in this XXL games room where you can discover and make pieces in Lego.
It’s a juggernaut that weighs a ton. And that required more than 600 hours of work for six people. The elephant that welcomes visitors to the Brick Live Christmas Grimaldi Forum is a unique piece that needed 250,000 small bricks to design it Lego.
For young and old
Welcome to the Brick Live Christmas, a new animation on which the Grimaldi Forum has chosen to bet to animate the end of the year festivities.
Halfway between the exhibition and the giant games room, the Brick Live occupies the Espace Ravel until 6th January and offers all the amateurs – small as well as big ones – to come to build and have fun with Lego.
The idea is that of David Ciclitera. This British resident Monegasque is the founder of Brick Live concept. A company, independent of the Lego brand, which offers its events around the world, especially in Asia. “We collaborated with the Prince Albert II Foundation to present protected species animals in Lego, and as a Monegasque resident, I thought that the Principality was the perfect place to make our event at Christmas time.”
Build to infinity
The idea appealed to the management of the Grimaldi Forum, which brought together local sponsors to create various spaces. At Ferrero for example, we can build small cars to be tested on a miniature circuit. A little further, at JB Pastor, we wear a hard hat to build buildings, taking inspiration from the arrow of the Empire State Building planted in the centre of the stand.
Everywhere, the atmosphere is turned to manual activity. One can seize briquettes and give free rein to his desires of constructions. All around, the models presented set the bar very high in all genres. Star Wars fans will appreciate the dedicated space. The most poets can “build” a word to leave on the graffiti wall. The highlight of the show remains this “zoo” unprecedented protected animals: giraffe, sharks, elephants that amaze in their design and their curves.
To achieve such dexterity, the salon is open every day – except for Christmas and New Year – until 6th January.
Until 6ht January, every day (except Christmas and New Year’s Day), from 10 am to 6 pm.
Admission: 20 euros for adults, 16 euros for children from 3 to 12 years. Free for children up to 3 years.
