A miniature Craig David has done the honours of turning on the Legoland illuminations as the 47 million brick Miniland gets a Christmas makeover.
The Windsor resort has created a replica of London’s Oxford Street, with exact replicas of the lights which run along the world famous shopping avenue – 20 times smaller than the real versions.
The 822 transparent Lego bricks will be lit up daily thanks to a 9.5cm high brick version of 7 Days singer Craig David.
There is a flying appearance from Father Christmas and over at Buckingham Palace the Miniland Royal Family are wrapped up in knitwear, ready to brave the cold for an al fresco Christmas dinner.
The Queen and HRH Prince Philip are prepared with tiny hats and scarves, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and HRH Prince Harry are donning suitably festive Christmas jumpers, whilst Princess Charlotte and Prince George are keeping warm in miniature mittens and hats.
Even Lupo, the family’s Cocker Spaniel, gets in the festive spirit by sporting a Santa hat for the Royal spread, with turkey, Christmas pudding and crackers all put on for the big day.
A postbox gives a chance for the little royals to send their wish lists to the North Pole and elves, reindeer, Christmas shoppers and carol singers can all be spotted as the sun goes down.
The scene took a team of talented model makers 306 hours to complete.
Legoland, in Winkfield Road, will open its Christmas Bricktacular on December 3 and 4, December 10 and 11, and December 17 to Christmas Eve.
