The LEGO Show and AFOLCON to return

Posted by ,

While I was busy faffling about with servers, it was announced that The LEGO Show and AFOLCON, previously held in Manchester, UK in 2011 and 2012, will be returning in May this year, but this time it will be in London at the O2 Arena!

Once again, it will be two days of AFOLCON (7-8 May) and three days of the public LEGO Show (9-11 May).

Exhibitors at The LEGO Show will receive free entry to AFOLCON, free accommodation, free meals, the works!

I would post the press release text here but it's proving to be impossible to extract it from the PDF complete with formatting, so you'll have to read the PDF version or visit the website for more information instead.

I'm certainly planning to be there, all five days, and will probably be part of a collaborative train display like that which I contribute to at GWLS, Swindon.

Unfortunately the full AFOLCON comes at an awkward time for me, it is a shame that it is not the week before as I could go in that case. Nevertheless, I will certainly be visiting The LEGO Show and am really looking forward to it!

It is indeed unfortunate timing. It collides with the Eurobricks Event, which I'll be attending for the first time this year, so I won't be able to make it. That's annoying, as I'd promised myself I'd definitely be going if the move from Manchester to London actually happened. Hopefully, there'll be enough visitors this year that it'll happen again next year. Then I'll be there!

It's very bad timing for me too, and I can't get the time off work. I hope that next year it's the week after, otherwise I won't be able to go next year either. :(

My antivirus software blocked the PDF version, as it came from a malicious site.

I would love to fly in for that event, but I just can't see how I would carry a MOC on a plane in any practical way.

The dates do seem to clash with a few other Lego things. It's the first Inside Tour, as well as the NSC.

I guess that's the price you pay to get one of the top venues in the UK. Here's hoping that it can become established there so we'll be able to predict it a little more in years to come...

Sadly the full AFOLCON tickets are a little out of my price range but as I only live 20 minutes from the O2 I'll definitely be attending The LEGO Show on the Saturday. Never made it to Manchester before so I'm looking forward to it, great to hear it's moving to the capital!
