BRICK LIVE 2017 - Fan Zones

Huw kindly posted the news a couple of weeks ago that the Fan Zone submissions were open for this year's BRICK LIVE shows, but I thought I'd add a forum posting here too in case of any queries, questions etc. 

For those unfamiliar with the events they are large-scale events (10-15,000 square metres) which are open to the public for 4 days with 1 day of set-up. They generally have about 6-10,000 visitors a day.

Dates for the shows are:
  • Glasgow: 20-23rd July
  • London: 27th - 30th July
  • Birmingham: 26th - 29th October

As in previous years the following are available to all AFOLs who display their MOCs at the show:
  • Accommodation (Shared) for 4 nights per show, 
  • t-shirts for show days, 
  • lunch for show days, 
  • hi-viz vest (where required by the venue for build & break) and 
  • a thank-you present.
  • Also the opportunity to request Grant Funding to help you attend the show, pay towards travel costs etc.

Closing dates for submissions for the shows are: 
  • Glasgow: 30th April 2017
  • London: 7th May 2017
  • Birmingham: 14th June 2017

If you need to know or check anything, please just give me a shout here or by email [email protected]

Thanks very much :-)

    Hi all, just bumping this to highlight the deadlines for Glasgow (this Sunday, 30th April) and London (next Sunday, 7th May).
    Any queries, please just ask.

    Thanks :-)

    Hi, any idea when applicants will find out if they've been selected or not for the London show?

    Can I place pieces of coloured card on the black table cloths to separate the MOCs into segments / themes?

    Considering I have many small / medium sized MOCs how will I ensure they don't get stolen or similar?

    I was wondering if AFOLCON will take place just before BrickLive, London?

    They normally have barriers to stop people being able to touch the models.
  • AdeelZubairAdeelZubair London, UKMember Posts: 2,701
    Sure but what happens if someone decides to touch them out of hours or similar?

    Well, outside the opening hours, it's not open to the public, so there's no-one around...

    After hours the halls are locked. And Security patrols all night just in case.

    Just to say that BRICK LIVE 2017 Birmingham Submissions are still open.

    We’ve extended the deadline to 15th July as we know lots of people are on holiday or have been away at events and may not have had a chance to get their Submissions in yet.

    Show dates are the 26th – 29th October, with set-up on Wed 25th and it’s at the NEC in Birmingham.

    Register at brick.community

    Any questions just ask :-)

    Look forward to seeing what you’ve been building!

    This was the only Brick Live thread I could find, so I hope it's okay to post this here: if you're on their mailing list, Brick Live has just sent you a buy one get one free code for tickets at all their venues! Until midnight on Sunday 16th, you can put the code BOGOFBRICKLIVE into the promo box when buying tickets.
