Our largest exhibition of 2016 so far is scheduled for Naas Library on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 May. Similar to last year we hope schools will avail of the opportunity for a class visit on Friday where they can meet some the best LEGO builders in Ireland (places bookable via Naas library). From the last class on Friday to close of business on Saturday, the exhibition will then be open to the public.
This year's highlights include a very sizeable model of the 1916 Easter Rising complete with the GPO and Nelson's Pillar. We display for the first time in Ireland our very own LEGO Star Wars convention at the Dublin Convention Centre beside our version of Clerys Department store. Across the mezzanine, Superman hangs out in his Fortress of Solitude near where DC superheroes are having some difficulty with their Marvel(lous) neighbours. We again have lots of trains, trams and amazing detailed vehicles along with our latest city buildings.
A strong Irish presence was felt at the largest UK LEGO show, BRICK 2015, in the ExCeL, London, which took place the weekend of 11th-13th December.
One of the stars of the show was Jessica Farrell's fantastic model of the Royal Theatre in London. It's a stunning building, but Jessica cleverly left one side open to show the beautifully detailed interior and the performance taking place. See more photos of the model here.
Our final Irish exhibition of the year will take place over the October bank holiday weekend (24-26 October) from 11am to 5pm each day at Blackrock College as part of the South Dublin Model Railway Exhibition. This is our only Dublin based exhibition of the year and features many great models of Dublin landmark buildings, our largest LEGO train layout this year, a huge castle, aswell as other surprises including an amazingly realistic LEGO aquarium and a new Ninjago model built for this show.
