Competition: Your chance to feature in LEGO: Brick History

Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery is offering three lucky people the chance to have a LEGO® model that they have built feature in next year’s exciting special exhibition, LEGO: Brick History.

Given the theme of the exhibition, model makers will need to use their imagination to build a model that represents a historical theme… from scratch!

Lego® models could represent a period in history such as the Industrial Revolution or the Jurassic Age or key historical moments like the moon landing in 1969.

All models submitted as entry into the competition must be built from scratch. Any kit models will not be considered.

Participants’ models can be a maximum of 600mm x 600mm x 600mm.

There are three categories for people to enter depending on their age:

5 – 11 year olds
12 – 16 year olds
17+

As well as having their model featured in this amazing exhibition, winners will also receive Lego® worth up to £50 and one year free entry to the Museum.

The competition is now open and entrants will have until 10pm on Friday 5 January 2018 to submit their entry.
