South Devon | Lego Show
A one day show of LEGO creations is coming to Devon.
The event, West Country Brick Show, on Saturday 30 July at The Phoenix promises a creative family day out in the summer holidays.
The event organisers, ‘West Country Bricks’ are made up of LEGO fan builders and traders who will be proudly displaying their impressive creations and wealth of LEGO building expertise.
The show will feature large model replicas from history and science fiction, including a giant Star Wars mosaic. There is also a rare opportunity to see a vintage display of a 1960’s town plan collection up close, and ask questions and chat to the friendly team from Blocks magazine about building, customising and collecting LEGO bricks.
Children can experiment with LEGO bricks at a dedicated play table and will be encouraged to let their imagination go wild and build their own models inspired by the show’s experts.
Independent LEGO traders will be selling exclusive LEGO play sets, books and figures not available on the high street, and throughout the event raffle tickets will be on sale for the chance to win sets and figures. Winning tickets will be drawn randomly during the show.
Exeter Cathedral, in conjunction with Bright Bricks Ltd is in the process of building a scale model of Exeter’s iconic landmark using 300,000 LEGO bricks. The towers will stand over 1 metre high and extend nearly 4 metres wide to include the Cloisters and Bishop’s Palace once complete.
Exeter Cathedral will be at the West Country Brick Show exhibiting a section of their build and talking to show visitors about the project.
Money raised from this project will help preserve and conserve Exeter Cathedral. Exeter is one of just three Cathedrals in the country to have its own LEGO model. For a £1 donation show visitors will be able to add a LEGO brick to the model to help raise essential funds. It is hoped a whole module of the Exeter Cathedral build will be constructed by LEGO fans at the show!
The West Country Brick is at Exeter Phoenix on Saturday 30 July. Doors open 10.30am and the show closes 4pm. Tickets: Adults £2.50, children £1.
