Visitors can expect an interactive experience, stretching across the Grimaldi Forum. Enthusiasts will be able to explore themed zones and build their way through a unique seasonal journey. From Christmas and creative build zones, through to Minecraft and Galactic adventures, each zone will provide a different brick-based, interactive activity for fans to build their dream creations. BRICKLIVE Christmas will showcase all the best bits of BRICKLIVE shows in 2018, but with a super fun festive theme. Activities will include an interactive LEGO Friends area with a Monaco build map with all the favourite construction bricks, colourful brick pits with 250,000 bricks to create with, a 10m graffiti wall, our famously fun race ramps to shoot you cars down and much, much more.
