It's nearly time for my favourite annual Lego event!*
The Great Western LEGO Show will be taking place at STEAM, the Museum of the Great Western Railway, in Swindon on 5th and 6th October. It's always a fantastic show with some truly awe-inspiring models, fascinating talks and an extremely tempting array of stalls selling all sorts of Lego goodies.
I highly recommend going if you're at all interested in Lego (so that's everybody then ;-))
It's organised by our own lovely @Martin
and the models are built by members of the Brickish Association, the UK's largest LUG. See here for more info: http://www.greatwesternlegoshow.com/
I decided to start this thread to remind people that there's only 5 weeks to go, so if you want to attend, don't double-book yourself for that weekend!!
You can say here which day(s) you're attending, maybe what you're hoping to see. Exhibitors could maybe give us a clue as to what they'll be displaying.
It's also a great opportunity to socialise and meet fellow Bricksetters, maybe do a few trades in person too.
I attended STEAM (as it's generally known) for the first time 2 years ago and it was awesome to actually meet some of the people I'd been chatting to here for a few months. I hope I'll get to put some more faces to usernames this year :-)
I'll be there Saturday and probably Sunday too. I'm not exhibiting, I'll just be drifting around chatting to people and admiring the epic builds :-)
So, who else is going to be there??
*Other events are available. No detriment is intended to said events, however they are not taking place imminently and hence "out of sight, out of mind". Yes, I am fickle.
