Brick 2015 is the UK’s biggest LEGO show and gets into the festive spirit with a Merry Brickmas area, with Christmas themed displays, winter white brick pits and plenty of ideas for LEGO Christmas gifts for all ages.

The exhibition has a small Museum of LEGO history, The LEGO company is over 60 years old and some of the first sets are on display in the Museum, surprisingly the early sets are made of wood not plastic and included train sets. From  those humble beginnings has grown a global brand that has conquered the world.

A walk around Brick 2015 provides some of the reasons for LEGO’s success, the bricks have a remarkable versatility  that allows people to build basic models or some of the amazing models on show at the event.
