BRICKLIVE Animal Paradise Comes to Croydon
From 21st August to 8th September, Animal Paradise will bring to life an incredible display of some of the world's most beautiful, endangered species hand-built using 593,667 bricks. With the world's wildlife in a sad decline in recent years, Animal Paradise is an interactive experience that brings important animal and habitat facts to life in a fun and entertaining way.
Visitors will be able to take snaps at designated selfie points, let their little ones play in the child-friendly brick pits, and have a go at the Make & Take Workshop where shoppers can redeem a free LEGO kit through the PLUS app. In addition, customers who make a charitable donation of £3.50 will have the chance to take part in the two-day mosaic build between the 24th and 25th August. They will also be able to explore each of the four themed zones: Jungle, Wildlands, Snow & Ice and Ocean, to witness all 14 specifically designed statues in their natural environments.
The appearance of BRICKLIVE Animal Paradise at Centrale & Whitgift is amongst an action packed line-up of family events happening at the Croydon retail destination, including Save our Seas – an experimental event with games and activities such as ‘Hook the Plastic’ and ‘Under the Sea’ spot the difference. Save our Seas arrives at Centrale & Whitgift on 31st July.
David Ordman, General Manager at Centrale Shopping Centre, says: ‘’We’re extremely proud to be welcoming Animal Paradise to Centrale & Whitgift from the 21st August to the 8th September. It’s a very exciting time for us to be hosting this unique pop-up experience to the centre. We want to continue bringing more family experiences to Centrale & Whitgift, and think our visitors will have great fun creating photos and playing with the bricks at Animal Paradise!”
Matthew Sims, Chief Executive, Croydon BID, says: “As the summer reaches its climax and children and families gear up to back to school, we are delighted to be involved in bringing you an awe inspiring collection of life-sized animals taking you on an interactive experience like no other. From a Bengal tiger to a massive gorilla, a selfie safari truck and much more, Brick Live Animal Paradise has it all. Bring your family, friends, work colleagues, visitors and enjoy a truly memorable experience, right in the heart of Croydon.”
