LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester streams live building

With the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, Master Model Builder James is live streaming build videos to keep families occupied.

Measures to reduce the spread of coronavirus have led to people around the world being stuck at home, while businesses and entertainment venues have closed their doors. One of the attractions that has closed is the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester.

James, one of the two Master Model Builders based at the venue, has live streamed a video on Facebook showing how to build a LEGO egg. More are planned, and twice a week the LEGO expert will be sharing family-friendly build ideas to keep families occupied while they remain indoors.

LEGOLAND Windsor Resort recently announced that the theme park would temporarily close, as did The Brickman Experience exhibition. LEGO fans who are members of a LUG (LEGO User Group) have been advised not to meet in person.

Last week, LEGO CEO Niels B Christiansen confirmed much of the news that had already come out, that most LEGO employees are working from home and that all LEGO Stores outside of China have closed.
