Butterley Brick Week
May 29 - June 1
Does your family love LEGO® Bricks? If so, this is the event for you!
Combining amazing LEGO® brick models with a trip on a heritage train – a great full day out for the whole family.
Over 40 amazing models will be on display and will take you on a journey through pivotal moments in world history:
• key figures from Mozart to Martin Luther King;
• scientific discoveries from the Big Bang to DNA;
• recent history from mobile phones to the moon landings;
• and so much more.
A live build of a giant model of the iconic Kirtley steam loco took place last weekend. This model will be on display until the exhibition closes on 3rd June. And when you have seen the model, view the real thing in the museum at Swanwick Junction.
These stunning LEGO® brick models are brought to you by Warren Ellsmore, a renowned LEGO® brick artist who has produced stunning exhibitions worldwide, and his team.
