Join us for an action packed day to celebrate the opening of our Brick by Brick exhibition, which showcases international artists who use LEGO bricks in their work. Come along between 10am and 4pm to check out the show and to get making yourself. Activities will include a speed-building competition, LEGO brick balloon car racing, a golden brick treasure hunt and a large-scale LEGO brick mosaic build.
*Please note that there is a small charge for the mosaic activity.
Pit your wits against member of the Lincolnshire Society of Architects to see if you can create a well-known building from the Lincolnshire area in a faster time than them. Anyone taking part will be in with a chance of winning a bumper set of LEGO® Architecture. No need to book, just drop in to this free event throughout the day. Suitable for age 8+.
Join LEGO expert Chris Mcknight from Brick Box and have a go at making a LEGO bridge. We’ll put your bridge to the test to see how strong it is. As well as a prize for the strongest, there will be a reward for the wackiest bridge too.
This is a free, drop-in event, with no need to book. Suitable for age 8+.
