An extensive LEGO exhibition is landing in Leicester next month, taking up residence in Hammerson’s flagship destination, Highcross, and marking a UK first for the show.
Ryan McNaught’s Brickman Experience – the original of the Brickman’s four touring LEGO exhibitions – will showcase some of the world’s largest and most detailed LEGO models, including a LEGO Star Wars X-Wing, Airbus A380, a quarter scale LEGO Ferrari, and the world’s largest LEGO flower.
The show will be running from March 13th to April 20th.
Brickman Experience features a collection of over 60 individual works by Ryan McNaught – the only LEGO Certified Professional in the Southern Hemisphere and one of only 14 in the world. McNaught and his team’s award-winning creations have featured in locations around the world.
“I am really excited that the Brickman Experience is heading to Leicester. This exhibition is very special to me because it is the original collection of my individual works, brought together in one space, for everyone to enjoy. We’ve had huge success with the exhibition across the world, so it only seems fitting we bring it to the UK,” said McNaught.
Showcasing a collection of LEGO models that are fun, inspirational and memorable, attendees will enjoy an interactive and hands-on experience, whilst learning about each individual model.
McNaught added: “LEGO brings people together, everyone loves it – kids, parents, grandparents, everyone has a memory of playing with LEGO and I’m looking forward to sharing my creations with LEGO fans in Leicester and meeting all the budding brickies out there.”
Jo Tallack, general manager of Highcross, said: “Here at Highcross we’re committed to making sure there’s something new and exciting every time one of our customers steps through our doors. We’ve worked hard over the past few years to really step up the leisure offer at the destination, adding the likes of Treetop Adventure Golf and Social Climbing, as well as a range of F&B options like tamatanga and Kitty Café, which opens later this year.
“The Brickman experience is another great example of that, as there’s just nothing like it anywhere else in the world. I know there’s lots of LEGO fans in Leicester, so I am sure this is going to be really popular. Anyone looking to come along should book soon as it’s sure to sell out.”
