Yorkshire Brick Show

Posted by ,

The first Yorkshire Brick Show takes place on the 22nd and 23rd of February 2014 at the National Coal Mining Museum near Wakefield. Featuring impressive creations with LEGO bricks from Adult Fans of LEGO (AFOLs) from around the country, nay, the world, the Yorkshire Brick Show is set to be the largest display of LEGO models and creations that Yorkshire has ever seen.

There will be models galore from all themes in the LEGO universe, including City layouts, Trains, Star Wars and more. There will certainly be something for everyone. Aside from all that, we are preparing two special themes in homage to the National Coal Mining Museum, where the event will be held. The first is “Coal Mining Through The Ages”, which speaks for itself. The second is a nod to the Miners’ Strikes of 1984/85, “80′s Pop Culture” – featuring models that pay tribute to the decade that changed the face of Coal Mining forever.

What’s more, there will be loads of activities for the kids (and grown-ups) to get involved in, whether it’s in our build zone, attending one of our “Meet the Builders” presentations, or taking part in one of our fantastic competitions to win fabulous LEGO prizes, combined with the fantastic attractions at the National Coal Mining Museum, you’re guaranteed a grand day out!

The museum and the Yorkshire Brick Show are free to enter.

I wish I'd known about his a little (lot) earlier I would have tried to get there. I figure this must have been organized online somewhere? First I've heard of it though.

Is it possible for somone on this site to post a calendar with all of the shows this year coming? wherever whenever they are to allow people to plan things out in time please?
And perhaps a quick reference to how much it costs, maps and things to do there too...
sorry to bring this up...

^^ It was organised by Brickshire, Mark, so there's presumably more info on their site and I think there's also been some postings about it on the Brickish forum; it's certainly listed in the events section on the BA website.

^ It's a nice idea, but would require substantial effort to populate the calendar and keep it updated. Are you volunteering ?

;-)

Info regarding upcoming events is often posted on the Brickset forum so that'd be a good place to start.

Any online calendar would only be as good as the information in it and we certainly aren't informed of every event, and we have enough to do as it is.

There has been community efforts to produce a definitive calendar in the past but they have all failed.
