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.”
