Shildon Brick Show is full of LEGO models created by fan builders from across the UK, from LEGO cities to LEGO art, Star Wars, Marvel and DC, to Technic, trains, great ball contraptions and much more.

Custom LEGO models on display at Shildon Brick Show

When you’re finished admiring the models, you can visit our marketplace to find that hard-to-find LEGO set or some pocket money toys, and then dive in to our brick play pits!

Models vary each year, and we can’t guarantee individual models will attend.
