  • The LEGO Group unveils the Twelve Rebuilds of Christmas for this year’s decorations at The Savoy. A total of 372,931 bricks, and 2,200 man hours have gone in to taking the song lyrics and turning them into ‘The Twelve Rebuilds of Christmas’. From a Dragon Shaped LEGO Christmas Tree to a Princess Rocket Castle this is one Christmas display LEGO fans will not want to miss.

    For inspiration each line of the classic Christmas carol has been re-imagined through the eyes of a child. Instead of Five Gold Rings and a Partridge in a Pear Tree, this year carol singers will be singing about Santa’s New Wheels and a Dragon Shaped Christmas Tree.
