Lego blooms in Hull

Published on: 12th April 2017

Lego has revealed an unusual flower bed featuring over 1700 individual daffodils, built entirely with Lego Bricks.

Hull LegoThe flower bed confirms that spring has definitely sprung in Hull ready for the Easter holidays.

Located in Hull, a city currently revelling in the fact that it is the UK’s City of Culture for 2017, the flower bed can be found in King Edward Square. This colourful, vibrant display adds some fun and colour to Hull, which is already buzzing with a packed calendar of cultural events throughout this special year.

Martin Green, Director of Hull 2017, said: “It’s been a great pleasure to see daffodils in bloom across the city and this new and very special bed of Lego flowers will bring a further burst of colour to Hull’s beautifully transformed public realm. With the Easter holidays upon us it’s another wonderful free attraction for residents and visitors alike.”

The Lego Spring Flower bed was built with 146,400 Lego bricks by Duncan Titmarsh. Duncan has an unusual job that young children dream of, he is the UK’s only Lego Certified Professional and there are only 15 in the world.

The Lego Spring Flowers will remain in place in King Edward Square from today, 10th April until 5pm on Saturday 22nd April. On the afternoon of Tuesday, 18th April, between 2-5pm and in return for a donation to MIND and Hull Citizens Advice Bureau, the individual Lego flowers will be available to take home on a first come first served basis.
