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.
