Yesterday we attended the Brickmania LEGO show at Peterhead Prison Museum. We were there with our LEGO Vikings and were joined by some of Scotland's finest LEGO builders, including Alison and Callum Clayton, who recently featured in a Daily Record article about Scottish AFOLs and Edinburgh based pros Warren and Teresa Elsmore.
Held in a room that once fed the prison's former occupants, the event was attended by an astonishing 2,000 or so people, with brick pits, building competitions and of course the exhibits of Tartan LUG's builders providing tons of entertainment.
Our man at the show Dan Harris said:
"This was a great event that seemed to fly-by! The quality of the exhibits and activities on offer was outstanding and I think visitors really appreciated all the effort that went into hosting it. My model was quickly surrounded by the great entries to the LEGO builders competition; there appear to be a lot of talented young builders in north-east Scotland!"
We look forward to coming back next year!
