LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham is honouring the Queen’s remarkable 70 years on the throne by throwing the world’s smallest Platinum Jubilee celebration.
After taking to the throne in 1952, Her Majesty has ‘built’ an extraordinary legacy, serving not only the UK but the masses of countries throughout the Commonwealth. As such, the residents of LEGOLAND Discovery Centre have decided to mark her Platinum Jubilee with a party like no other.
Taking to the streets of Miniland Birmingham, a mini figure of Queen Elizabeth II can be spotted waving with the rest of her royal family from the balcony, as her Jubilee carriage and mini figures parade the streets in her honour.
With foot guards marching, 350 patriots waving the nation’s flag, streets lined with bunting, reporters on hand and secret service officers watching nearby, it’s an image we’re sure to see replicated in real life throughout the Platinum Pageant and Trooping of the Colour during the extended Bank Holiday weekend.
LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham’s Miniland features many of the city’s iconic buildings, from the Bullring to the world’s smallest Primark and now for the first time has its very own regal procession.
Michelle Thompson, Master Model Builder at LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham, said: “We are all so looking forward to the Platinum Jubilee celebrations later this month. Her Majesty has been an amazing role model to the country over her 70 years on the throne, so we decided we should do something to honour her legacy, by creating one of the world’s smallest (but greatest) Jubilee celebrations.
“Our mini figures lined the streets of Birmingham to commemorate the queen, and even threw a tiny street celebration complete with a miniature tea party including cucumber, ham and jam sandwiches alongside Victoria sponge cake, biscuits and fruit punch.
“Our Platinum Jubilee celebrations in Miniland will be on display throughout the lead up to and during the Jubilee, we can’t wait to welcome our guests to our attraction to enjoy the world’s smallest party parade!”
