SLUG ambassador Kevin Hyatt said: “This is the first time we’ve done a two-day show in Hull. It’s become more and more popular every year so in order to let more people enjoy the event we wanted to expand it to a full weekend.

“There will be lots of all-new custom creations built by our master builders, most never seen before by the public, as we have all had a lot more time to build during lockdown.

“We are especially excited about being able to show people Simon Blackburn’s life-size Jeep made entirely from Lego bricks.

“Each year Simon creates something amazing in a large scale and this display was inspired by his D-Day anniversary display two years ago.

“We’ll have several exciting activities such as the ever popular ‘spot the Minifig’ hunt and various other challenges. In the second hall, we have a selection of specialist Lego traders selling everything from new and old sets to loose parts and custom Minifigure accessories.”

Kathryn Shillito, HullBID executive director, said: “Everybody loves Lego and Brickfest is a brilliant exhibition of the amazing things people can build. I’m particularly looking forward to finding out how many individual pieces it takes to build a full-size Jeep!

“We’re supporting Hull Brickfest 2021 because it’s a fantastic family event which will attract people into the city centre over two days this year, bringing more benefits for our businesses as they continue to welcome back customers.
