The talented builders of Brickshire (a Yorkshire based Lego user group) will be out in force at Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School on Saturday 24th October bringing with them their amazingly intricate creations ranging from a realistic medieval village, walled garden and train shed to the fantastical Cloud Cuckoo Land and vehicles from ‘Thunderbirds are Go’. MOCs (my own creations) inspired by film and TV will also be on show demonstrating skill, imagination and dedication.
Come and admire the magnificent city layout with some of Lego’s most detailed and realistic buildings on display. Stay and watch 25 years of Lego trains and the exceedingly rare monorail in action as they speed along tracks, under bridges, over flyovers and past stations and see if you can work out what caused the fire at the haunted house. Take a moment to appreciate Lego’s interpretation of two of the world’s most iconic landmarks - The Taj Mahal and Tower Bridge. And as if that weren’t enough to take in, everyone who visits the show is automatically entered into the ‘Spot the Mini Figure’ competition in which a successful search for nine super hero mini figures amongst the display gives you the chance of winning a Lego set. If you don’t win that, there is a raffle with lots of Lego prizes.
Apart from the spectacular display there will be hours of fun for Lego fans of all ages.
Budding MOCers will have a chance to chat with experienced builders about how to develop their skills and techniques and leave with tips on how to improve their own MOCs.
Take part in the challenge to build a mosaic in a day - follow the design and complete a 32x32 stud tile to complete a 3.5 metre by 4.5 metre Fairy Bricks logo. Just 250 tiles will do the trick!
Other activities include a blind build challenge in which you can look at the instructions but the pieces are in a box and out of sight whilst you build, using Lego digital design to have a go at digitally designing your own MOC, trying your skills at the build table where plenty of different elements will be available and taking part in a workshop using power functions to build a moving fairground ride.
There will also be an opportunity to buy sets - some no longer available as well as a large range of loose Lego elements.
Refreshments will be available for tired adults and hungry children in need of a little more energy to complete the day’s activities.
Doors open at 10.00am at LCHS on Wragby road. Last entry is at 4.30pm. Admission £2.00 for adults and £1.00 for children.
