Join Brick Alley

If you love LEGO bricks and live in the North East of England, Brick Alley is for you.

We are a group of 100+ Lego fans based in the North East of England and want to share our love of LEGO bricks with everyone!

Monthly meet-ups for adult LEGO fans

We meet monthly, usually in Darlington, although we do have occasional meetings in Newcastle, Durham and other locations in North East England.

Brick Alley meet-ups are varied, and can feature a LEGO-themed talk or demonstration, some hands-on LEGO building challenges, or just a chat and chance to swap LEGO sets, parts and figures. We encourage members to bring recent LEGO sets and MOCs (My Own Creations – custom built models) too!

How involved you wish to be in the group is up to you. Some members just hold membership; others interact on our Facebook members’ group, or attend our meet ups, while others exhibit or volunteer to our shows throughout the year.

LEGO shows and exhibitions

A large focus of our LEGO User Group is on its annual LEGO model exhibitions, or shows. The largest of these is Shildon Brick Show, held at Locomotion Museum in County Durham each November, followed by Discovery Brick Show in Newcastle upon Tyne, and Thirsk Brick Show, in North Yorkshire, and Bricks N Bits in Shildon.

Other benefits

Being a Brick Alley member offers opportunities to meet other adult LEGO fans in the region, as well as improve your model building skills, collaborate with like-minded people, and more. We have a large active Facebook groip

Every penny we earn goes in to supporting future events and activities, from thank you packs for exhibitors at your shows, to trophies and LEGO set prizes for challenge winners.
