LEGO builders and model makers of Manchester… Bricktastic is coming to Manchester Central for a two-day LEGO celebration. This will be a LEGO-tastic, brick-brilliant event for families who love LEGO and love to build!

Head to Manchester Central, where 100 LEGO model builders from throughout Europe will be displaying and talking about their fantastic LEGO built models. You’ll be awestruck by the intricate LEGO Trains, LEGO Star Wars, and giant LEGO sculptures, all on show for families to explore throughout the event.

We all know you can’t just LOOK at LEGO, your hands will be itching to pick it up and play with it too. As well as looking at amazing LEGO sculptures and displays, you will also have the opportunity to build LEGO for yourself, getting hands on with thousands of LEGO Bricks in our live mosaic building, brick pits brimming with LEGO for playing, a graffiti wall to leave your mark at Bricktastic, and many other secret surprises. Home time will not disappoint either, as on your way out you’ll be met by UK LEGO Retailers to buy a little LEGO treat to take home, and all children visiting the event will receive a free LEGO gift upon entry.

The event is being organised by charity Fairy Bricks, an organisation whose sole aim is to provide LEGO sets to children in hospital. They reach over 30,000 children throughout the year in the UK.

The 9am entry on Sunday morning has a limited number of tickets available. This Quiet Time is to enable a calm environment for anyone with additional needs. Please only purchase tickets for the 9am slot if you or members of your family or group would benefit from the more relaxed situation. All visitors for the 9am slot will still require a ticket.
