With measures to limit the spread of coronavirus becoming more stringent, the Brickman Experience has closed at the Highcross Shopping Centre, Leicester, UK.
Just over a week ago, the Brickman Experience opened in the UK for the first time, with LEGO Certified Professional Ryan McNaught’s exhibition located at the Highcross Shopping Centre in Leicester. With the coronavirus guidelines changing on a daily basis, the attraction initially opened but the organisers have now decided it must close.
LEGOLAND Windsor Resort also recently announced that the theme park would temporarily close.
Here is the official statement from the show organisers:
Our primary concern is the safety and health of our customers and staff.
With this in mind, The Brickman Experience regrets to advise that under the UK Government’s recommendation to avoid social contact, we will be temporarily suspending our event at Highcross in Leicester. We will be reviewing this regularly in line with government advice regarding COVID-19.
We fully appreciate that this decision comes as a disappointment and an inconvenience for those planning to visit but ultimately we have the responsibility to protect the well-being of our community and we believe this is the correct decision to make.
We thank you for your understanding as we work with Highcross Leicester to reschedule the event to later dates.
For now, we would like to thank you for your understanding and support in these unprecedented circumstances.
