National Space Centre celebrates ten years of hosting weekend-long LEGO event

By Perry Johnson

The National Space Centre is calling for all LEGO© fans this weekend, as the UK’s largest planetarium hosts its fun-packed ‘Brickish Weekend’ for the tenth consecutive year.

Leicester’s National Space Centre: The largest planetarium in the UK

This weekend the centre will be filled with rare LEGO kits, planes, trains and automobiles; featured alongside some of the largest lego brick displays ever created in the UK.

The event is organised by the Brickish Association, a community of British LEGO fans who work with the iconic toy brand to build giant, impressive structures – such as the ones on display this weekend.

Malika Andress, Head of Marketing at the National Space Centre, said: “Come and get creative at the National Space Centre and show off your LEGO building skills.

“Whether you’re a novice or a master builder, you’re welcome. At Brickish Weekend everything is awesome.”

The weekend-long event offers fun for the whole family – with the chance for visitors of all ages to lend a hand in creating a giant mosaic out of the multi-coloured bricks.

Those hoping to still witness the wonders of space will not be disappointed either, as the event will see the return of the centre’s out-of-this-world LEGO gallery filled with large scale spacecraft builds.

Tickets for the event are £15 per person, with under-5s being able to enter the event for free and children’s and concessions tickets being priced at the lower sum of £12.

The event is not premium however, and annual passes are valid for entry in place of a ticket.
