Last chance to see Brick Planet

There’s still time to see one of Woodhorn’s most popular exhibitions, which will close for the last time at the end of May.

Anyone still hoping to see a world in LEGO brick miniature has just a few days left to visit.

The intricate models of renowned landmarks from around the globe and man-made wonders has attracted close to 30,000 visitors since it opened in February, but half term week will be the last opportunity for LEGO fans to see these plastic masterpieces by brick artist Warren Elsmore.

The exhibition, which features a stunning replica of St Pancras Station in London, helped to break visitor records at the Northumberland museum when over 14,000 people visited the museum during the 9 days of the February half term - four and a half thousand more than even the first week of opening in 2006.

Keith Merrin, director of Woodhorn, said: “Brick Planet has had such a wide appeal with adults enjoying the brick recreations every bit as much as the younger generation.

“Many people have their own fond recollections of playing with LEGO so the exhibition has stirred happy memories and encouraged creative inclinations for everyone.

“It’s been wonderful to see just how creative people have been, with visitors spending time constructing mini marvels: vehicles, monsters, buildings and more.

“We’ve been thrilled to see the final works of art they’ve produced, but just as happy to see all generations getting to grips with the building blocks and letting their creative talents loose.”

Woodhorn and Brick Planet will be open every day until Sunday, May 30.
