A full day filled with fun events, shopping, and browsing displays, this really is a haven for Lego collectors and fanatics. Lego bricks were first brought to market in 1949, since then over 600 billion Lego pieces have been manufactured. Lego was the building block (see what we did there?) of so many people’s childhoods and remains a leading brand in children’s toys today. But Lego have also managed to capitalise on the big kid market, with huge build your own sets such as the Star Wars Millennium Falcon which contains an insane 75,257 pieces getting adults everywhere reaching for the kragle.
London Brick Festival boasts some of the most intricate and breath-taking displays. Each event offers entirely unique displays from a massive Mos Eisley Spaceport diorama from the Star Wars line as well as free build designs that showcase stunning scenery and animal builds.
Free building with Lego is just as common, you don’t need a pre-packaged set to build something great. London Brick Festival will have an almost limitless number of random bricks in all shapes, colours, and sizes for you to choose from to build anything you can imagine on site. So, you can fill up a cup of bricks and get to work building something totally unique.
Want that one Lego set you never got for Christmas? Or looking for a perfect gift for your Lego obsessed friend? There will be plenty of new and used sets available to browse through. You may even find some vintage and discontinued sets among the stalls. You can also find a huge range of Lego minifigures as well as accessories, perfect to add to any collection.
After treating yourself to a new Lego set you can head to the building area where you’ll have space to create your set or bring a free build idea to life. If you’re feeling competitive, you can enter a speed building challenge and see if you can be the fastest Lego builder in London, and with real prizes up for grabs, make sure to sign up at the Activity area before the slots are booked up.
Brick Festival has been created by Lego fans for Lego fans and they don’t want anyone to miss out.
