Council approves Legoland centre in Birmingham


Plans for a new Legoland attraction in Birmingham have been given the green-light by planners.

The Legoland Discovery Centre will be built at the Barclaycard Arena and will be even bigger than a similar Legoland centre in Greater Manchester.

The centre in Manchester features a 4D cinema, a Lego racers circuit, a themed ride, a café and a shop.

The popularity of Lego is currently running high, with the recent release of the Lego Batman Movie.

      Granted it’s not breaking news for the area, but occasionally we do flag up Arts and Entertainments stories from outside our usual news patch that we believe will interest many of our readers.
