Work together to create awesome structures in our big brick pit and navigate your way around the tracks on the interactive LEGO® train layout, while younger visitors can make their own fun in our DUPLO® Play and Display area. Design and build your own LEGO® brick vehicle and race it against your family and friends, then pose for a photo on our special winners’ podium.

Learn about the science behind this iconic brand with renowned brick artist Warren Elsmore and join Warren’s team to be part of an exciting big build, creating a LEGO® pilot for the Red Arrow Hawk over the event weekend.
