    We'll be there with the Arena, travelling down this afternoon. There is supposed to be a huge Alien invasion layout aswell (collaborative build) and other spacey stuff.

    @savage_steel, have you decided whether to go or not? I think I'll be rolling up around 11.30.

    @collect_that, @pricey73 and @bluemoose - see you there!

    I'm unfortunately missing out this time.

    Having attended last year and the year before, however, I can highly recommend this event to anyone who's still undecided - it's a neat venue even aside from the LEGO, and there'll be some cool LEGO displays and activities to enjoy.

    So go !!

    Yep, we'll be there, I think around 11.30ish? booked the planetarium for 1.30. I'll be with my sister and her kids too.

    I'll be popping up tomorrow as well. I actually lived round the corner when they were building the place, but have never actually been. I'm looking forward to popping back into the Abbey Pumping Station next door as well.

    Is there a lego thing happening at the pumpig station again like last year?
  • MinifigsMeMinifigsMe Member Posts: 2,844
    Utterly fabulous day, really enjoyed the Lego, seeing everyone again and the space centre is great! We were there 7ish hours and still didn't see everything!

    ^ Most of the exhibitors are still there; the show finishes at 5pm today, plus pack-up time & travel time home, so don't expect any of the exhibitors to post any pics until tomorrow at the earliest.

    I've gone through a few of the 250+ photos I took yesterday & I've posted them here -

    I'll post some more over the next couple of days. Unfortunately, the best photos I have are for a secret project, so I won't be sharing them yet :-)

    ^^^ There was a 'Vintage Leicester' event going on at the Pumping Station this weekend - lots of steam engines and dressing up in "20th Century" clothes ... most of my wardrobe was bought in the 20th century :-/

    EDIT - I've started a NSC'2012 group on flickr ...[email protected]/
    ... so if you visited, please share your photos through the group. Cheers.
