Imagine one of the largest displays of LEGO ever created in the UK. Now you don’t have to imagine it, as the National Space Centre joins forces with the Brickish Association to create a weekend dedicated to the iconic colourful plastic brick.

Now in its tenth year, the weekend will see the whole building filled with huge LEGO creations, rare kits, planes, trains and automobiles.

• In ten years of hosting the Brickish Weekend we have displayed over 700 huge brick-built creations thanks to the Brickish Association.
• In ten years of hosting the Brickish Weekend we anticipate we have displayed over 5 million bricks.
• In ten years of hosting the Brickish Weekend, we have used over 500 tables to display the amazing exhibitions, that is 7,200ft of exhibition tables!
