The Bristol Brick Show is returning next monthPosted on: 12 Sep 2022
A fantastic array of models and displays created using only LEGO bricks is coming to North Bristol’s Gloucestershire County Cricket Club in November.
Returning for the first time post-pandemic, Bristol Brick Show will run on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 November.
The action-packed weekend is sure to draw an impressive crowd as it makes its return after two years away with more than 70 displays built by adult fans of LEGO from all over the country.
Tickets for next month’s show can be found on the website.
LEGO fanatics of all ages will have the chance to explore a huge range of creations, including the enormous collaborative build called Pirate Cove, a Star Wars recreation and moving LEGO train layouts amongst much, much more.
On top of this, attendees will have plenty of opportunities to get hands-on with a wide variety of play bricks, tombolas and LEGO robot wars to get involved with and meet fellow enthusiasts while doing so.
The inaugural Bristol Brick Show took place in 2018 with the first two iterations taking place in Whitchurch. Now - after a COVID-enforced interruption - 2022 sees the return of this much-loved event, this time at a far larger venue.
This year’s show will be raising money for two charities, namely Children’s Hospice South West and Fairy Bricks. The former provides care to children with life-limiting conditions and their families; while the latter charity donates LEGO sets to children’s hospitals – brightening the lives of thousands of sick children.
The Bristol Brick Show is organised by members of GertLUG, a Bristol-based LEGO user group who attend monthly meetups and organise events around the city. More information can be found here.
This year’s show itself runs from 10:00 to 17:00 on Saturday 19 and 10:00 to 16:00 on Sunday 20 November.
Tickets to the show are £8 for adults, £4 for children and £20 for a family (2 adults and 2 children). They can be purchased here.
