AN IMMERSIVE exhibition is set to arrive at Blue Planet Aquarium this summer, with millions of toy bricks assembled to depict life beneath the ocean waves.

The highly anticipated BRICKLIVE Ocean exhibit showcases a fascinating collection of hand-built brick statues, made from 1,328,371 toy bricks that give a fin-sight into the mesmerising world of marine life.

The 25 brick models combine family friendly entertainment with education, with the model collection including octopi, whales, turtles, crabs, dolphins and sharks (real ones can also be visited at the Aquarium, which is home to one of Europe’s largest shark collections.) You can even learn how to dive in among them, for face-to-face interaction.

As well as the stunning brick models, the exhibition will also feature a range of hands-on activities and challenges for visitors to enjoy. Children and adults alike can get involved at building stations, creating their own ocean-inspired masterpieces.

There’s also a Brick Trail where visitors can explore the aquarium, fact finding while enjoying all the brick creations.

Phil Verbinnen, General Manager of Blue Planet Aquarium, said: "We are incredibly excited to host the BRICKLIVE Ocean Exhibition at Blue Planet Aquarium. This event combines the beauty of marine life with the creativity of learning through play with bricks and offers a unique and educational experience for our visitors.

"We can't wait to see the joy and wonder on the faces of children and adults alike as they explore this incredible exhibition."

The BRICKLIVE Ocean Exhibition will run from 21st July to 3rd September at Blue Planet Aquarium, near Cheshire Oaks, Cheshire.
