AFOLCON is almost here!

Posted by ,

Just one day to go until the start of what promises to be the biggest and best LEGO event the UK has ever seen!

Are you going? If so, let me know in the comments. Will you be there Wednesday evening? I'm travelling up by train tomorrow and will get there late afternoon. If you're going to be in Manchester too then drop me a line and maybe we can meet someplace. I'm staying at the Copthorne Hotel, Salford Quays and will be at AFOLCON Thursday and Friday, and the Saturday morning of The LEGO Show.

AFOLCON special!The first 50 people that come and say hi to me during the events will be given a 1x8 brick printed with the Brickset logo!

Deeply disappointed I'm unable to attend but work and family must come first.
I do however look forward to the news and reviews as they break.

To all who make the show, have a great time and hope you have plenty to talk about.

I questions! I'm coming to the Lego Show on Sunday, bringing the kids. How long should we plan on spending in the show? Will parking be a issue, and what would you recommend for food? As you can tell we're show virgins.

Thanks.
