Here we take a closer look as Manchester Pride is re-imagined ahead of the weekend's festivities:

In preparation for the weekends festivities, Legoland Discovery Centre Manchesters Master Model Builder, James Windle, has been busy redecorating MINILAND.
Manchesters most iconic buildings have had a special rainbow makeover and a host of party scenes capturing the celebratory nature of the weekend have been added.

As a nod to the incredible work the emergency services do to keep the public safe through Pride, the attraction has been sure to add plenty of police officers and members of the fire service to the scenes.
With Manchester Pride set to end on a high with headliner Ariana Grande performing on Sunday, those unable to bag tickets can see her on her very own LEGO stage, as part of the newly built replica of Mayfield Depot.
Most importantly, throughout all the scenes there are same sex couples celebrating their love with family and friends.
James spent over 30 hours designing and building the celebratory scenes, adding over 15,000 bricks and almost 400 minifigures to MINILAND by hand.
The Manchester Pride display will be in place until Tuesday 27th August in MINILAND and is included within the general admissions price.
Other scenes on display include Manchesters most loved street quite literally raining men
