THE brick-tacular Great Western Brick Show returns to STEAM this weekend.

The show is sure to surprise kids and adults alike when it arrives at the museum for two days of creative constructions and impressively-imaginative infrastructure.

Enormous models and massive Lego displays inspired by pirates, spaceships, monsters and movies will be set up inside the museum to amaze families and Lego fans.

Show partners the Brickish Association will bring back their unique large-scale models and themed landscapes which have all been carefully constructed. brick-by-brick.

Martin Long co-organises the show on behalf of the Brickish Association.

He said: “Our show at STEAM attracts visitors from all over the UK and our aim is always to inspire children and adult Lego fans to get involved and build their own models at home.

“We don’t show images of all our new show models ahead of the weekend as we don’t want to spoil the wow factor and amazing surprises experienced by our visitors.

“The Bricks to the Past history group have given a few hints about their exhibits this year on their Facebook page.

"I urge people to take a look at the show website to glimpse the astounding quality of models that can be expected at the show – many on display for the first time.

"Every year we feel we have achieved the impossible and wonder whether our creativity has peaked.

"Then, every year we keep achieving something even more amazing than before -we simply can’t wait to share what we have in store."

The weekend will also include a giant Lego mosaic that visitors can help build over the weekend, a Lego shop and market place, and dramatic Lego robot battle tournaments.”

Coun Dale Heenan, Swindon Borough Council’s Cabinet Member responsible for STEAM, said: “The Great Western Brick Show is a brilliant day out for families and Lego fans.

“The displays on show are the best I have seen outside of Legoland.

"The Minions, interactive trains and Robot models were my personal favourites last year and I look forward to seeing what surprises are unwrapped this time around.

“If you haven’t been before it is well worth a visit, and please remember that STEAM is only a short 10-minute walk from all of the town centre car parks.”
