Click with someone at LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester this Valentine's

Posted by ,

LEGOLAND Discovery Centre in Manchester is holding a special adults-only Valentine's event this year:

Calling all ADULT fans of LEGO! We’re hosting an AWESOME alternative Valentine’s night! Come along on Wednesday the 13th February at 7pm and share your LEGO Love with like-minded people, and for the singles…maybe find your missing piece!

The event is not exclusive to singles, anyone who loves LEGO is welcome to attend and mingle – there’ll be all the usual fun for regulars at AFOL nights! But to help the singles spot their potential future Mr or Mrs Brick, there will be a traffic light style Lego block badge system to identify the possibility for love.

Are you single but not a big LEGO fan? Come along anyway! This HAS to be more fun than your average singles night, right?

So what’s to lose? If you don’t find the person of your dreams, you can always make them!

Find out more and buy tickets at the LLDC website.

Hmmm, a singles night where about 90% of those attending will be male - nah, you're alright.

For those who haven't seen it, there's a Valentine's build for AFOLs scheduled for next week at U.S. stores, too.

If the people at it are as cringeworthy as that couple from the Lego Masters show, I'd give it a miss.

"...not a big LEGO fan? Come along anyway!..."

That might not be a good idea...

" So you still like legos, huh? Yeah, I did when I was like, 6. I grew out of it."
"..."
"...It sure hurts stepping on 'em, huh? Huh? Where are you going?"

Fairly confident my perfect match will be there ... and I won't be because gosh what a heck of a drive.

To the 5 Mancunian females attending:
Do you like to share sideways building techniques? Why not check out my SNOT! You could have wild days out in my run down economical hatchback that affords more Lego. Or relax at my cheap rental pad also affording more Lego! Who needs an alpha male when I can be your brick! Perhaps you could become my best UCS model. I'm smooth as a tile but please can you help me find my missing piece I have actually lost it somewhere.
PS No illegal technique builders please.

I bet the female model they got for the picture doesn't even like Lego...

I’m torn between being offended on behalf of female AFOLs (and possibly women in general...) at commenters assumption that there won’t be any women there, or being offended on behalf of AFOLs in general by the implication we are mostly desperate singles... but either way this event looks pretty cringey! ...Maybe I’ll be there!

By the way, at a recent adults evening at discovery centre in Boston and it was a very equal mix. Really mostly groups of friends out for a quirky activity rather than full of hardcore AFOLs. Didn’t meet a single other person who had a collection at home :(

On a side note @Huw does brickset gather any demographic data like gender? Curious now...

"The singles"
Somehow this sounds racist.

It was going so well until she said she doesn't believe in Sets before marriage.

Gosh, this doesn’t sound creepy and depressing at ALL.

Also, and this might taking it a step too far, painful. Just think how much it hurts stepping on Lego, let alone sticking your ... okay, I'll stop there.

I asked my fiance to marry me at the 2018 Valentine's Day adult build event in the US. Me down on one knee, surrounded by colorful, happy toys; of course she said yes! We had also attended the Valentine's Day adult build in 2017. Both years had about 15 couples show up, according to store staff. This year, it's scheduled for February 12, so check your local store calendar and sign up for the event in advance. Then on the 12th, bring your partner to the Lego Movie 2, treat them to dinner, then finish the night at the Valentine's Day adult build.

well, you can always use a brick separator to relieve the tension

It sounds like there's an unmet need that events like this haven't quite figured out how to satisfy. Clearly this is an opportunity for a new Brickset functionality: AFOL matchmaking!
