Thousands through the door as Lego exhibit continues

Screen Shot 2016-06-08 at 13.36.58ANY Lego fans that have not yet seen Kirkleatham Museum’s miniature marvels still have time to join the thousands who have already blasted off to Brick Planet.

Hosted at Kirkleatham Museum and Grounds, Brick Planet has already been enjoyed by more than 7,500 people with Lego landmarks including Saltburn Pier, St Pancras Station, and the Great Pyramid of Giza all on display.

With the exhibit running until Monday 11 July, any Lego fans that haven’t had the opportunity to make it down to Kirkleatham Museum yet still have time to do so.

The majority of the exhibits, apart from Saltburn Pier which was built by local Lego enthusiast Mark Willis, have been built by Warren Elsmore who has exhibited his works around the world. He said: “It’s great to bring together models from my first two books – Brick City and Brick Wonders – and to display them in Kirkleatham. We had a lot of fun deciding which models to build for the two books and it’s great to see them all on display. Hopefully it might inspire some local builders to have a go themselves!”

Cllr Carl Quartermain, Cabinet Member for Jobs, Skills and Leisure, said: “It’s brilliant to hear that so many people have already come to the museum to see an absolutely excellent range of Lego creations. The exhibit provides fun for fans of all ages and I would encourage as many people as possible to come down to Brick Planet while they still can.”

Brick Planet runs until Monday 11 July with tickets costing £3.50 for adults, £1.50 for children with a family ticket costing £8.50 for two adults and up to three children. For more information on Brick Planet, go to: www.redcar-cleveland.gov.uk/brickplanet.
