This year’s event will be out of this world!

17 to 30 August 2019

Aliens, astronauts and space rockets will land in Sheffield this summer as Sheffield BID brings back its hugely successful Sheffield Bricktropolis.

Building on the success of the World landmarks trail last year, this summer sees a new space trail join the Bricktropolis programme.

Celebrating 50 years of the moon landing, Bricks in Space is a visitor trail of galactic LEGO-brick models.

Families are invited to take part in an exciting space mission to discover planets, astronauts, rockets – and even a friendly alien from the farthest edge of the Green Spiral Galaxy!

There are 15 incredible Bricks in Space models to find on the fun interstellar trail. Standing 1.9m tall, the Neil Armstrong model is made up of more than 57,000 bricks, while the 2.8m-tall Apollo 11 Saturn V rocket has 68,583 bricks. There will also be models of astronauts Yuri Gagarin and Valentina Tereshkova, as well as planets, the first flag on the moon, and various space vehicles.

There will be a fun astronaut selfie zone, and visitors can share their pictures on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram by tagging @SheffieldBID and using the hashtag #SheffieldBricktropolis.

Visitors can download the Sheffield Bricktropolis app to scan the models and reveal fun facts. Scan them all to be in with the chance of winning prizes including a fabulous free family trip to LEGOland. Last year’s winners, the Randerson family, will share their fantastic experience as part of this year’s event. You could be a winner this time!

Sheffield Bricktropolis returns 17 to 30 August 2019. Register NOW to receive regular updates about the trail, interactive workshops and an even bigger fringe programme this year!
