Bricktropolis arrives in Sheffield
Sheffield Business Improvement District (BID) has turned Sheffield city centre into a Lego Bricktropolis.
Taking place on 4 – 17 August, the event will feature a trail of 20 landmark buildings from across the world including the Shard, the Arc De Triomphe, Big Ben and the Empire State Building – all made from Lego. Sheffield’s own City Hall building has been built too, featuring almost 20,000 pieces of Lego. There’ll also be an Interactive Building Zone, Mosaic Builds and a series of fringe events, deals and competitions.
Diane Jarvis, Sheffield BID manager, said: “The BID is looking forward to turning Sheffield into the Sheffield Bricktropolis during August. With free activities for all ages, it provides the perfect opportunity for a day out in the city centre during the summer holidays.
“With so many businesses involved, the Sheffield Bricktropolis is a fantastic example of businesses working together to create an event that attracts visitors from across the country to Sheffield. We have teams on the street working hard to make sure Sheffield is looking clean and attractive for visitors to the Sheffield Bricktropolis and hope this event can put Sheffield on the map as a great place to visit with the family.”
The Big Sheffield Bricktropolis Build competition is underway with an opportunity for the public to submit their own creations of Sheffield landmarks, people and places for a chance to win a Sheffield Gift Card. Enter the competition by posting the creation on Twitter or Instagram with#MySheffieldBricktropolis.
