They seem to be announcing it rather early, but later this year will be a chance to see an awful lot of plastic bricks on Brick Lane in East London.

Specifically, a big display of large Lego sculptures is being put on inside the Old Truman Brewery near to Shoreditch Overground station.

What can be seen as part art event, part geeky fun, and frankly, part promo for a plastic toy manufacturer, the Art of Brick exhibition should have more than 75 objects on display made from over a million bricks.

You can already book tickets (link removed, dead), even though the venue doesn’t open until this September.

I suspect the 20-foot tall Tyrannosaurus will be the most popular item on display. However, it better be really good to justify the £16.50 entry price for weekend tickets.


Not sure why the T&Cs need to explicitly state “No use of illegal drugs”. Isn’t that implicit in the fact that they are illegal?

Of course, being London, the best Lego is the ones used to create tube maps last year.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    This was on in Brussels last year and I saw it there. I’d say it was good — with some very clever models and enough to occupy you for an hour or so — but not quite as amazing as the promotional posters etc suggested.
