We’d like to thank everyone who attended BlockCon Sheffield on Sunday 25th February, over 1000 of you in all. We hope you enjoyed the models that were out on display. There were lots of new builders featuring in the show, and they really appreciated your feedback during the day.
We’re pleased to announce that tickets are now available for The Yorkshire Brick Show 2018, which will be held on the 6th and 7th of May 2018, at our new venue of Thornes Park Athletics Stadium in Wakefield.
We hope you had a fantastic time with us this year at the Yorkshire Brick show, and we want to thank you for once again making the show a success.
Over 2000 LEGO fans joined us on the 30th of April and 1st of May to celebrate the plastic fantastic, and we had 50 AFOLS (Adult Fans of LEGO) displaying their impressive creations with LEGO Bricks.
Yorkshire’s premier LEGO fan exhibition, The Yorkshire Brick Show will be returning to Wakefield’s iconic Unity Works venue again this May Day Bank Holiday weekend. The show will be running on Sunday the 30th of April and Monday the 1st of May, perfect for your Bank Holiday “things to do” in Yorkshire.
It’s been a week since we opened the doors for the Yorkshire Brick Show 2016 so I thought it would be a good time to reflect on the show, and thank everyone that came for making it such a great show.
Overall, we had over 3500 visitors over the two day show, and we thank you for taking part in our various activities, from the Minecraft build zone to the Giant LEGO bricks, as well as engaging our exhibitors and asking them about their models. We hope that you are truly inspired to build impressive creations with LEGO bricks.
The Yorkshire Brick Show, organised by niche events management company Stackable Events, will be back in the Wakefield District again this year. The event, which prides itself on being one of the largest exhibitions of LEGO models in the North of England, will be moving to Unity Works in Wakefield city centre after having a successful run at the National Coal Mining Museum for England.
Another fantastic year, and another fine job done by all involved in the show. Thank you to all of the public that attended, and made the show a success, and thanks to the Exhibitors, Museum staff, Helpers, Volunteers, Traders and the Bricks Magazine team, without whom we wouldn’t have been able put on this event.
During our bumper weekend, as well as all of the fantastic LEGO displays, build zones and marketplace, Bricks 4 Kidz will be supporting the event by providing building workshops for children, and adults, at the Yorkshire Brick Show. The children will be guided through the process of building motorised models based around Fair Ground Rides or shown how to create a mini Lego Earthquake model.
Fairy Bricks volunteers attend LEGO events around the UK and the rest of the world to raise money which allows them to buy LEGO at a discount, and donate them to Children’s Wards at hospitals and hospices local to the events that they attended.
The Yorkshire Brick Show will be back again in 2015. After our unprecedented success last year with over 6000 visitors in two days, we’ve taken your comments on-board, and this year we’re going for quality over quantity.
