Looking for something fun to do with your family during the Autumn School holidays? Well, we might just have the perfect entertainment for you and your little ones.
Bricklive Fantasy Kingdom
Bricklive Fantasy Kingdom is a toy brick trail of sword and sorcery. A fantastical quest with dragons, castles and princesses all created with toy bricks. Help Princess Orra on her quest to save the Brick Kingdom and defeat the evil Baron. Join her friends as they show you the wondrous sights in this medieval fantasy land.
Experience life-sized sculptures of key characters from the story including Princess Orra, Abbra the Wizard, Sir Barriston the Knight, Chester the Jester and Torre the Huntswoman. Let yourself be amazed by Tarygon, the huge life-like dragon standing over 3m tall and 4m long.
The trail runs during the Autumn School holidays from 8th October until 24th October 2021 and sculptures will be located all over the Stirling Thistles Shopping Centre and in Stirling City Centre.
What’s more, from Monday 11th October to 15th October Thistles Shopping Centre will offer FREE face painting and balloon modelling from 12pm – 4pm each day. Taking place outside Boots and Next, little ones can become their very own dragons, princesses and more.
Finally, you can win a huge lego prize if you share images on social media and tag @GoForthStirling and use #BrickLiveStirling.
