Held at the iconic Manchester Central (formally the GMEX) on August 15th and 16th it will be two days dedicated to the plastic brick loved by millions of children and adults. Highlights will include:
Models created by the UK’s only LEGO Certified Professional Company, Bright Bricks
An exclusive first look at the 2015 model being created by the Brick To The Past team.
A chance to meet LEGO designers Carl Greatrix and Tom Poulson.
A new 120,000 part LEGO mosaic.
Interactive sessions with Master Builders to learn just how they create such stunning work.
Brick Pits and play tables to create LEGO master pieces.
Demonstrations by Awesome Engineers of their interactive LEGO Workshops.
A variety of shopping opportunities including lots of personalised items.
Tickets will be on sale Saturday 2nd of May via the event website www.bricktastic.org priced at £11.50 for adults and £8.50 for children. Infants under 3 are free.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to the charity Fairy Bricks. Fairy Bricks donates LEGO to children in hospital throughout the UK and following the event will pay particular attention to Manchester and the wider North West.
So that is the press release. Any questions Brickset members have then get them up on this thread. People have been asking for a big event further north so here it is :-)
Obviously I am going to say this but I would recommend getting your tickets early. The space is big but not unlimited and will cost considerably more on the door with no reductions for children.
