Happy New Year

BLOG - Big Ben

Given that I’ve been a boy of moderately good behaviour over the last year, I was lucky enough to become the proud owner of one of Lego’s architectural sets on Christmas Day. As you’ll have hopefully worked out from the picture above the set in question was the Palace of Westminster’s Clock Tower, which of course also goes by the name of Big Ben.

So on the day that the most iconic building in Britain sits up front and central in the nations mind I thought it only right to share my love of connecting small blocks of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene together and at the same time point you in the direction of Ian McMillan’s series of short programmes celebrating the BBC broadcasting the chimes of Big Ben for over ninety years (the first of which is below).

Happy new year!

  1. Love that you are connecting the Lego celebration of Big Ben with that clock’s wonderful, distinctive sound. Happy New Year, and let us all enjoy more Lego and sounds in 2014!
