To celebrate the roaring success of Town Hall Symphony Hall’s Children’s Show The Tiger Who Came to Tea, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Birmingham have created a bespoke Tiger model in honour of the show’s ravenous main star – complete with a mini Sophie sat at the dinner table ready for tea!
The model was created by LEGOLAND Discovery Centre’s Master Model Builder, Michelle Thompson.
Speaking about her creation Michelle said;
“I was really excited to build this childhood favourite, and wanted to make sure to add as much expression to his face as I could to match the original character’s flare and cheekiness – he’s no ordinary tiger!
He was built to fit to scale for Miniland where he towered over the residents – adding the detail to such a small scale was tricky. His big beady eyes and cheeky grin looked great sitting at the dinner table with the Sophie Minifigure. The final model was revealed to the cast who were so convinced, they almost mistook him for the real tiger!”
The cast of the hit show visited the Discovery Centre to get a glimpse of the model up close and also visit its LEGO Miniland, which showcases iconic buildings in the West Midlands, including the Town Hall where the show is being performed.
To find out more about Michelle’s creations and to see the LEGO Miniland and other attractions like a 4D Cinema and great family fun rides, you can visit LEGOLAND Discovery Centre at Arena Birmingham.
The Tiger Who Came to Tea is at Town Hall Birmingham until Sunday 13th January. Tickets can be purchased via the THSH website, by calling 0121 780 3333 or at Symphony Hall box office.
