AFOLCON news... 3 months to go!

Posted by ,

News hot off the press from the LEGO SHOW and AFOLCON office:

"We're very pleased to announce that the team behind the amazing Christmas tree in St Pancras station will be coming to the show. Both Duncan Titmarsh and Ed Diment from Bright Bricks will be at AFOLCON to talk about how you put together a 3 tonne LEGO tree.

"They'll also be showcasing some of their smaller works too - as big as our venue is, the tree just won't fit! For those attending the LEGO Show, Ed and Duncan will also be running special workshops where you can learn how to build like a pro.

"We're also soon be announcing the LEGO Designers that will be present at the show. AFOLCON attendees will again have a unique chance to listen and talk to LEGO Designers about how the products are developed. Last year, Mark Stafford brought never-seen-before prototype models of the Alien Conquest line. Who knows what's in store for 2012?

"Finally, if you live in the North of England, you're about to hear a lot about The LEGO Show - keep an eye out in the local press for us…. And if you'd like your 15 minutes of fame, then make sure you're registered for AFOLCON and we know what you're working on. We might just make you famous… for a while ;-)"

AFOLCON runs on the 3rd and 4th May 2012 and is open to anyone over the age of 16 (16-18yr olds must be accompanied). Tickets cost £60 and include all session, an out-of-hours visit to the LEGOLand Discovery Centre and a goodie bag which includes 1Kg of LEGO. For more details, go to www.afolcon.com.

The LEGO Show is open to the public on the 5th, 6th and 7th May. Tickets cost just £29 for a family of four when booked online, saving you the queue and 20%. For more details, go to www.thelegoshow.com.

Very excited about Afolcon - I'll have to start a "Number of Sleeps" countdown calendar :P
Especially looking forward to "learning how to build like a pro" with Duncan and Ed :)

Thanks huw I completely forgot abot AFOLCON, the only other Lego Convention I have been to was the GWLS 2011, which was a really good time out. Shame I won't be able to go to the AFOLCON due to College, but I should be able to attend the Lego Show on the weekend :)

This year it's just before the end of the Uni semester-2 lecture programme, and with deadlines and impending exams aplenty; I can't afford to go. :-(
