COMPETITION: Your chance to feature in LEGO: Brick History

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 644mmx644mmx644mm.

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

5 – 11 year olds

12 – 16 year olds


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.

To enter this competition and have the chance to have YOUR model featured in the LEGO: Brick History exhibition, email with the following:

What historical period or history theme your model represents

Your name and age category your submission is for.

The competition will be judged by Lego® enthusiast and Brick History creator, Warren Elsmore. Warren said:

“I can’t wait to see what designs the people of Shropshire and beyond can come up with! We choose History as a topic as it gave us so many ideas to work with. The world is your oyster!”

LEGO: Brick History opens at Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery on Friday 9 February 2018. For more information about the exhibition, click here.
