Twycross Zoo is to be the first place in the Midlands to host the BRICKLIVE Big Cats exhibition, which will be available every day of the summer holidays from July 13. This unique collection of LEGO® brick models will join a fantastic summer line up following the announcement of the arrival of two new resident Sumatran tigers at the zoo.
The BRICKLIVE BIG CATS exhibition includes 12 LEGO brick models, and allows visitors to get up close to some of the world’s most magnificent felines. The models include everything from the lion cubs, Liam and Lita, to Padma the Panther and Lenora the African leopard. Made up from a total of almost 750,000 bricks, and taking the equivalent of 1 year 4 months to build, visitors are sure to be blown away by the meticulous detail of each build and the collection. LEGO fans both young and young at heart can marvel at these special creations, and gain an insight in to how these masterpieces were made, inspiring them for their own next LEGO project.
Big cats really are stealing the show this summer, following the arrival of the Midland zoo’s newest residents, Jahly and Sialang, a pair of critically endangered Sumatran tigers, who are living in their state of the art purpose built habitat which includes an impressive 15m glass tunnel right through the centre. Also not to be missed are the beautiful snow leopards and critically endangered Amur leopards, both some of the rarest big cat species on the planet.
Twycross Zoo relies on the generosity and kindness of its visitors to support its ongoing conservation work. To book tickets visit www.twycrosszoo.org
