Anyway, this is a quick report on the first ever West Country Brick Show, which took place in Exeter's Phoenix Centre on the last weekend of July. This event was organised by Darren Smith, Lewis Aylmer, Marc Reid and our very own builder, Simon Pickard. Unfortunately, Brick to the Past could only be present in a very limited capacity as most of our models are still in Rheged, however Simon and James Pegrum were able to take along some excellent smaller scale displays, which we are delighted to say were well received.
“Starting out as four friends that wanted to share our hobby, in a region of the country that we thought had little interest in LEGO, we were naturally overwhelmed by the unprecedented demand for a LEGO show in the west country. Despite the long queue that formed, visitors were really enthusiastic about the event. We are now working keenly on ensuring that the west country gets the bigger and more accessible LEGO show that so many requested in their feedback.”
We congratulate the event organisers and hope that there will be many more shows to come.
