Bricks Britannia LEGO exhibit launches in Canterbury today

Bricks Britannia: A History of Britain opens to the public today at the Beaney in Canterbury.

A LEGO exhibit from Bright Bricks, titled Bricks Britannia: A History of Britain, is launching at the Beaney in Canterbury, UK today. The exhibit sees 30 LEGO models representing iconic moments in British history. The largest model on display will be an eight foot long model of the Flying Scotsman that features light, sounds and smoke effects.

Plenty of historical occasions are covered, with the display going all the way from the Stone Age to the 21st Century. Over 150,000 bricks are used in Bricks Britannia, with the exhibit developed and built by professional LEGO building company Bright Bricks.

Once guests have been inspired, they will be able to build their own creations with the 70,000 loose LEGO bricks that will be on hand.

LEGO is loved by kids – and much bigger kids – so this exhibition is one that’s not to be missed. And once you’ve marvelled at the incredible models on display, you can get cracking on making your own inspiring creations,” Chairman of Canterbury City Council’s Community Committee, Neil Baker said. “This is going to be a very popular event and early booking is recommended so you don’t miss out.”

Bricks Britannia: A History of Britain in LEGO Bricks runs at The Beaney until Sunday, February 24.
