Announcing Brickosaurs!

Perception and Image
Centrale & Whigift and Croydon BID Collaborate to Bring Brickosaurs to the Town Centre

Following the roaring success of BRICKLIVE last September, when an incredible exhibition of wild safari animals was displayed throughout the town centre, Croydon BID and Centale & Whitgift Shopping Centres have collaborated once again to bring BRICKOSAURS, a dinosaur themed trail focused around 15 impressive-looking dinosaur models. Every sculpture takes hours to build by hand, using skilled builders, and uses thousands of bricks containing LEGO®.

Running from Thursday 2nd April until Monday 20th April, the family-focused event will feature throughout the Easter holidays, allowing children of all ages to have a roar-some adventure! Pick up a trail map from the Whitgift Information Centre and follow the Dinosaur feet floor stickers and collect egg stamps from each model across the centres to win a free gift! In addition, there will also be FREE fun activities and events around animals of the Jurassic eras. From Giant LEGO® and DUPLO® brick pits to Dinosaur egg decorating and palaeontology workshops, all activities will be FREE for children to enjoy.

Over 1,700 people were recorded at the myriad of planned activities at BRICKLIVE last summer and thousands more enjoyed the FREE brick pits. This new themed event, BRICKOSAURS, will have an even greater programme of events, thanks to Centrale & Whitgift Shopping Centres. 

Matthew Sims, Chief Executive, Croydon BID, says,

““Following the success of last year’s BRICKLIVE Animal Safari, it’s great to be working once again with Centrale & Whitgift on an even more exciting, interactive spectacle, which will attract many people of all ages to the town centre during the Easter holidays. The wide appeal of both LEGO® and dinosaurs are timeless and we look forward to seeing 15 incredible models, brick pits, and other activities, creating two weeks of fun.”

More information about the trial and family events can be found on Centrale & Whitgift’s website, see link below.
