It may have been cold but the crowds braved the chill to descend in their masses to the National Space Centre in Leicester on March 3rd & 4th for the annual Brickish Weekend. Members of the Brickish Association were on hand to show off their LEGO® creations with every from space-themed builds to fun fairs on display around the exhibition area of the Space Centre. Fairy Bricks were with their famous mosaic, which this year celebrated the Woman of NASA and their prized filled raffle tombola, offering great little prizes and fun things to do. Although there were a couple of displayers unable to attend the event due to poor travel conditions, there was still enough dotted around to marvel at. This included an impressive expansion of the LEGO Creator Big Ben to create the entire Palace of Westminster, Labyrinth-themed characters, over-sized LEGO Space minifigures complete with brick-built vehicles and much more. There were a couple of impressive diorama displays including a Battle of Hoth inspired build. The creative skills the members of the Brickish Association never fail to impressive and if you didn’t manage to get to the event you can check out some of the great builds in the gallery below. We unfortunately couldn’t spend as much time at the event as we wanted to but we are looking forward to being there next year.
