Grimaldi Forum building bricks for Christmas Show

By Staff Writer - July 18, 2018

Behind the scenes the Grimaldi Forum convention centre is preparing for its Christmas special, its BrickLive Christmas. Running from December 22, 2018, until January 6, 2019, the LEGO-based event will attract enthusiasts of all ages, according to David Ciclitira, president of BrickLive Group.

Sylvie Biancheri, general manager of the Grimaldi Forum, said: “Children will have the opportunity to walk around and create their own universe.” The show will occupy 4,000 square metres in the Ravel hall and feature a number of themes, such as Star Wars, brick graffiti walls, car races, and even LEGO Christmas decorations.

David Ciclitira, a Monaco resident, said that the show could become an annual event in Monaco. His team is already working on LEGO creations especially influenced by the Principality, including a map of the city. Certainly, BrickLive’s formula is popular. The company is planning a total of 60 events for 2018 across the globe.
