Returning for it's third year, Bricktastic is a two day LEGO Event in the heart of Manchester with all show profits being used by the Children's Charity Fairy Bricks to give LEGO to children in hospital.

The very best LEGO Builders from the UK and beyond will showcase their new creations, many being shown to the public for the first time. They will joined by models from Bright Bricks, the UK's only LEGO Certified Professional Company.

Bricktastic isn't just a display event. There will be a variety of hands on LEGO activities, structured things like a group mosaic build, free building with a variety of bricks, LEGO Mindstorms and many more.

No LEGO day out would be complete without a few treats and a variety of retailers will be on hand for pocket money bargains, missing parts, the latest LEGO sets and some long since retired ones.

Really enjoyed the event and my son loved it. Only point I would say was not enough sellers there and they were all in a small area which became hard to get to and get a good look at what was on offer. It was hard for my 5 yr old son to look as he kept getting pushed out the way. But really enjoyed it

Apologies if you were attempting to buy tickets this morning. The agent site had a wee wobble but everything is running nicely again :-)

*** Important Security & Cash Sales Information *** After more discussions with the venue it has been decided that ALL bags will be searched upon entry. We appreciate this is not ideal but hope that everyone will understand how necessary this is. We will operate this as little disruption as possible. Cash/card sales will be available on the day (subject to availability) and after purchase those ticket holders will have to join the advance ticket purchase line. On the day prices will also be higher than online at £13.50 Adults and £10.50 children. So to pay on the day you have to line up twice and it will cost more. Therefore we strongly recommend you buy your tickets in advance. This will get you into the venue quicker and save you money. If they are still available then they will still be able to be purchased on the day of the event online.

r you going to have a no bag lane for those who attend without a bag?
Deanne Shaw
-- 24/06/2017 10:00
Find it very disappointing no reduction for disabled children, carers, can I ask why this is? Thanks Deanne
Bricktastic

Hi Deanne, We did consider this way back in 2015 when we ran the first Bricktastic. We consulted a variety of agencies and charities that focus on people with additional needs because while we (Fairy Bricks) are a charity our focus is on general health and well being. They all came back with an answer along the lines of that if this was a commercial event then we should offer concession tickets as you have described. However as the event is essentially a fundraising one for Fairy Bricks then it wouldn't be appropriate. We have maintained that policy since 2015. Last year we introduced an early opening time for people with additional needs at 9am and have continued that this year. It means that for the first hour only 100 people are allowed inside the venue for a much calmer relaxed experience. Some of those tickets are still available. There isn't an additional charge for these tickets and nor do we ask for proof of a persons additional need. Hope this is helpful :)

When you're enjoying our new mosaic build next week, spare a thought for the poor souls stripping and sorting the bricks in preparation!
Sarah Davies
-- 23/06/2017 11:03
Wow. Didn't realise you actually built it before hand !
Kevin Hyatt
-- 23/06/2017 11:03
I don't mind helping with the sorting it's the stripping before leaving to make sure Im not smuggling out any bricks I don't like!
Daniel German Jarvis
-- 23/06/2017 11:03
Kevin Hyatt you enjoy stripping really :-)

Fantastic competition being offered by Northern to win train tickets and entry over on their twitter feed! Just guess the number of bricks in the jar. Before anyone asks, we don't know the answer! https://twitter.com/northernassist/status/877873798850134016

Want to attend on the Saturday. My son is disabled. How do I go about obtaining a careers ticket and would there be a charge for this?
Nikki Hudders
-- 21/06/2017 21:43
I asked the same question Sarah. I rang up and they said they are not doing the free carer tickets because it is a charity event. All ticket prices are a flat fee for everyone x

Morning Sarah, First of all apologies for the email situation. They get spammed up quickly, especially overnight. In answer to your question about carers tickets... We did consider this way back in 2015 when we ran the first Bricktastic. We consulted a variety of agencies and charities that focus on people with additional needs because while we (Fairy Bricks) are a charity our focus is on general health and well being. They all came back with an answer along the lines of that if this was a commercial event then we should offer concession tickets as you have described. However as the event is essentially a fundraising one for Fairy Bricks then it wouldn't be appropriate. We have maintained that policy since 2015. Last year we introduced an early opening time for people with additional needs at 9am and have continued that this year. It means that for the first hour only 100 people are allowed inside the venue for a much calmer relaxed experience. Some of those tickets are still available. There isn't an additional charge for these tickets and nor do we ask for proof of a persons additional need. At no point have we stated that the event will ever be "rammed" Yes of course there will be times when it is busy but again a decision made going to 2015 was that we would rather have less people having an incredible time than more having an average one.

Want to meet a giant Uni Kitty? Would two be even better? Well guarding our entrance this year will be two of them and you can see the Classic Space one here! Built by our friend Warren Elsmore and his team, they will be keeping a close eye on the line for any misbehaviour. We wouldn't want Angry Kitty to appear now would we.......
