Steven Foster, General Manager at White Rose Shopping Centre, said: “This summer, we’re celebrating heroes of all kinds, that’s why we’re incredibly excited to immortalise some of the county’s most treasured sporting stars in miniature brick form for this year’s Yorkshire Day.

“People young and old have memories of playing, building and collecting LEGO® bricks, so we can’t wait to offer this unique collection of mini-Yorkshire heroes to the Leeds public – but be quick, they won’t be around for long!”

Alongside the mini-figures, White Rose will be celebrating Yorkshire Day with a brass band who’ll be performing popular hits throughout the day. Performances will take place throughout the centre at 11am, 1pm and 3pm on August 1.
