ARCHIVE – Bricks in Time: Hands on History in LEGO
SATURDAY 9 JULY – SUNDAY 4 SEPTEMBER 2016 // Curated By Bright Bricks, featured In Channel 4’s ‘Inside Lego At Christmas.’ Travel back in time with an interactive LEGO® exhibition brand new for Rheged, and discover models made by professional LEGO Artists which bring to life some of Britain’s important historical turning points. Highlights include an exclusive 8 metre long model of The Flying Scotsman, a giant diorama of Saxon life, Beatrix Potter and her creations, Tudor monarchs and a large model of Lowther Castle, all bustling with minifigs and LEGO characters dressed in period costumes. Then spark your child’s imagination with LEGO brick building activities, from racing your own wind-powered train, creating a model for our zip wire, to constructing catapults and creating family portraits in LEGO, before testing your skills against the professionals in a timed building challenge. Our Summer theme of LEGO, making and history will spread throughout Rheged with a new programme of children’s events and films.
