All done and dusted for 2013
- October 9 2013
Wow, there we are. Another year and another show done and dusted. We think it was the best yet and feedback from visitors suggests they think so too. We’re still seeing photos flooding on to sites like Flickr so we may post a few cool links in the coming days if we see some spectacular shots.
Brickwood Studios to make its debut at GWLS
- October 4 2013
Brickwood Studios is this year’s collaboration train display between Andrew Walker and Skegga, assisted by Jacob Walker. The display is over 17 feet long and will feature both Power Functions and 9v trains. Following a basic plan, we always bring together pre-built scenic models and build our layout on the day, although some pieces have been built for other shows this year, we can be sure you won’t have seen this display before!

Brickends are partnering up with Gizmocom again this year to bring some awesome new LEGO products in the Marketplace Hall. Martin Long, coordinator of the Great Western LEGO Show and owner of Brickends has just got the latest LEGO lighting range in stock for this weekend.

We had an amazing day. My children went home inspired to build some cool models of their own.
Our friends recommended we visit the show and it was every bit as good as they described.
