LEGO Santa chooses Covent Garden Christmas tree

The Christmas tree has been chosen for London’s Covent Garden by LEGO Santa himself.

Each year, an enormous Christmas tree takes pride of place at London’s Covent Garden, part of the city’s extensive festive experience. For 2020, LEGO Santa has helped to select what will be the location’s enormous centrepiece.

The giant minifigure reviewed trees at Woods Farm in Solihull, selecting a 60 foot tall fir tree. It will now be transported to the capital ready for installation at the popular tourist spot.

The lights switch on will take place on November 10, by which point the tree will be in place. Whether LEGO Santa will make an appearance or not has yet to be confirmed.

This year’s main LEGO Christmas set is 10275 Elf Club House, which provides a glimpse into the world of Santa’s elves, revealing their routine as they sleep, eat and wrap presents. There’s a waffle machine, chimney and sleigh, with a light brick to light up the top floor.

The set complements 10245 Santa’s Workshop, the first fantastical Winter Village release, and last year’s 10267 Gingerbread House.
