LEGO fans, there’s an exciting new exhibition coming to New Walk Museum this summer, as Brick City arrives in Leicester from 2 May – 31 August.

Brick City is a celebration of iconic buildings from cities around the world, carefully recreated in LEGO® bricks by artist Warren Elsmore and his team.

Visitors will be able to take a world tour and discover highlights of cities across all seven continents. You’ll visit lively celebrations from New Zealand to New Orleans, tall skyscrapers from New York to Mecca, and imaginative castles from medieval Japan to modern Las Vegas.

The magnificent centrepiece is London St Pancras Station, measuring two by four metres and built from over a whopping 180,000 standard LEGO bricks.

You can also enjoy discovering other new urban highlights as well as some more recognisable icons. Spot surprising common ground between buildings thousands of years and miles apart, such as the Roman Colosseum and the London 2012 Olympic Park.

Perfect for LEGO fans your or old, the exhibition will leave you  inspired to make your own creations and celebrate where you live.

Brick City arrives at New Walk Museum on 2 May 2020 and will run throughout the summer.
