And finally… Brick City LEGO exhibition reaches Perth

BrickCity-ArticleA feast for all LEGO lovers, featuring over fifty LEGO models including the impressive 2x4m St Pancras Station, has opened at Perth Museum and Art Gallery.

The exhibition aims to appeal to all ages inspiring creativity and an appreciation of architecture and the iconic scenes that make up our cities worldwide.

There are also scaled-down versions of the Olympic Park in London and the Roman Colosseum as well as Edinburgh and New York street scenes, to name just a few.

In addition to these iconic landmarks, models made by local residents, communities and schools from Perth and Kinross will also be on display including some local landmarks.

The second area, which is sponsored by local construction firm A&J Stephen, will be officially opened on Saturday.

Brick City drew around 50,000 visitors to Paisley when it went on display there in 2013.

Helen Smout, chief executive of Culture Perth and Kinross, said: “We are delighted to welcome Warren Elsmore’s iconic Brick City exhibition to Perth Museum and Art Gallery.

“With some of the world’s most famous buildings being re-created in LEGO bricks, it looks certain to be one of the highlights of 2017.”

She added: “We are sure Brick City will be popular with people of all ages and it makes for a great day out.”

The exhibition will run until Sunday, May 7.
