600,000 Piece LEGO Christmas Tree stuns Passengers at St. Pancras International

A 32 feet high Christmas Tree was erected at St. Pancras International on November 24 made from 600,000 pieces of lego, including the decorations!

So Who Built this Huge Model?

Ed Diment is responsible and has also constructed Westminster Abbey and an American warship from lego. He is a self-confessed lifelong lego fan and is chairman of the Brickish Association. This is a club of ‘grownup’ lego fans with 250 members and their trademark is to build large public lego displays.

The latest one is this massive Christmas Tree at St. Pancras and he was assisted by local schoolchildren. Lego has seen a resurgence in recent years and is reputed to make more tyres than any other company in the world.

This Christmas Tree was stopping people in their tracks the day after it was ‘opened’ and will undoubtedly boost sales this Christmas. And of course, it is an easy trip to Denmark from St. Pancras International by train which will be made easier in 18 months when direct services start to reach Germany.
