The Great Western Brick Show is back at STEAM Museum this year - and it will be celebrating two decades of the massive shows.

The event, put on by Brickish - a UK Lego user group - is one of the largest displays of Lego fan models in the UK and promises something new for its 2022 outing.

There will be countless models of all sizes built by Lego fans such as railway layouts, buildings, space craft, cars, trucks, aircraft and much more

There will also be 'interactive building', where visitors can help create an all-new giant Lego mosaic from over 100,000 bricks.

Other attractions include a Lego shop and indepedent Lego traders selling exclusive sets not available on the high street - as well as Lego and Duplo brick pits tables for children.

Entry to the Great Western Brick Show also includes entry to the railway museum on top.

"We're thrilled to announce that The Great Western Brick Show is back! Celebrating TWENTY YEARS of amazing shows by members of Brickish - a UK Lego User Group," an announcement on STEAM's Facebook post said. 

"We're looking forward to this just as much as you are!"

The event was previously known as the Lego Show, but trademarking issues with the Danish company that makes Lego meant that it could no longer be that. From its 17th year in 2018, it's name was changed to the Great Western Brick Show.
