Master Builder LEGO® – Tuesday 6th to Thursday 8th August 2019

NEW  "Master Builder LEGO®" event on Tuesday 6th to Thursday 8th August 2019.

Our themed workshops are designed to inspire and engage with the creativity inside all of us. During each workshop participants will be set 2 or 3 building challenges which they will be able to work on using our vast supply of assorted LEGO® bricks.

There is no right or wrong way to build with LEGO® which enables all participants, regardless of their ability or previous experience, to create something unique, and we are there to support our Mini Master Builders with any advice and building tips that they might need.
