See Britain’s history in Lego form at special exhibition

Bright Bricks are bringing their Lego exhibition to Canterbury

An exhibition featuring the history of Britain in Lego bricks is coming to Canterbury.

Called Bricks Britannia, the show at the Beaney museum and gallery in the High Street is created by Bright Bricks, the leading company for Lego brick creations.

It includes a 25ft-long model of the Flying Scotsman, the world’s most famous steam locomotive, with light, sound and smoke effects.

Iconic moments in British history, from the Stone Age to the 21st Century, will also be presented in Lego form.

More than 150,000 Lego bricks have been used.

Visitors will also have the chance to build their own creations in the 70,000-piece Brick Pit.

Bricks Britannia: A History of Britain in Lego Bricks opens at The Beaney on Saturday, February 9 and runs until Sunday, February 24.

Admission is £6.50 for adults, £6 for concessions and £5 for children (under threes go free). Beaney members receive a 10% discount off their booking. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Due to popular demand advance booking is recommended. Log on to the Beaney website’s dedicated page for the exhibition for opening times.
