Harrogate Convention Centre has partnered with Bright Bricks, the professional LEGO brick building company, to organise The Great Brick Adventure – a family show focused on the modeling of LEGO bricks.

The Great Brick Adventure will feature two exhibitions of life-size LEGO brick animals and fantasy creatures, alongside activities, retail stalls and displays from enthusiasts.

Running from August 31-September 2, the show is the first to be organised and hosted by Harrogate Convention Centre, with profits going back into the business. Harrogate Theatre will oversee ticket sales for the show.

Brian Dobson, head of sales and events at Harrogate Convention Centre, commented: “We’ve visited similar events around the UK and seen for ourselves the phenomenal popularity of LEGO bricks with both adults and children. The show will feature two exhibitions, The Great Brick Safari and Mythical Beasts, created for us by Bright Bricks.

“This is a really exciting event for us because it’s the first time we’ve put our expertise into hosting our own event. Partnering with the incredibly talented builders at Bright Bricks means we have all the resources at our disposal to stage something pretty special for people of all ages.”

Duncan Titmarsh, managing director of Bright Bricks, added: “People love seeing these models. There are many hours of design, planning and building that go into our models, so it’s great to see the reaction they get from the public. They’re really inspirational too. You can see the children and the adults immediately start building their own models in the huge pools of bricks we have at the shows.”
