Excitement is building for the new LEGO model exhibition coming to The Harley Gallery from 22nd January to 2nd April, following the phenomenal success of last year’s Brick City.
The record-breaking Brick City exhibition attracted more than 80,000 visitors over its three month run. Now the same professional master builder is bringing his much lauded Brick Wonders show to the Welbeck estate in north Nottinghamshire for the first time.
Brick Wonders – Ancient, Natural and Modern Marvels in Lego – created by Warren Elsmore – will take visitors on a journey through history and round the globe featuring both old and new wonders of the world.
The seven wonders of the ancient world, including the Lighthouse at Alexandria and The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, are recreated in full to great effect. In all, the show will present more than 70 fantastically detailed models.
As well as ancient wonders, visitors can marvel at the recreation in miniature of some of the world’s most spectacular natural landmarks from The Great Barrier Reef and The Great Wall of China to the Matterhorn. Seven modern inventions are also represented through the LEGO creations – from a Model T car and a light bulb to the international space station.
The Harley Gallery will also be developing a programme of educational workshops; competitions and hands on activities to complement Brick Wonders.
