About the event

29703895684_63f200f663_kBlock Con is coming to Sheffield! The event, which debuted in Hull back in September, will feature of LEGO® models from talented Adult and Teenage Fans of LEGO® from around the country. It will be hosted by Stackable Events in at Bramall Lane Stadium in Sheffield, in association with the Sheffield LEGO User Group and the Stackable Community Network on the 19th February 2017. Just in time to start off a fun-filled half term holiday.

We aim to bring you a great LEGO® shopping experience, with over a dozen of the countries leading independent LEGO® retailers attending, giving you a chance to buy those collectable sets and minifigures you’ve been looking for, and providing pocket money treats for the children, as well as giving you a chance to pick up original items that you would be unable to find anywhere else.

What kind of Block based event would it be without a room full of fantastic LEGO® models built by some of the countries leading LEGO® modellers. From fantasy scenes and sci-fi goodness, through to classic LEGO® themes, with large city layouts, classic space and highly collectable sets, you’re sure to find something you enjoy.

We’ll also be inspiring the next generation of LEGO modellers, hosting a large play area, filled with LEGO bricks, assisted play, colouring and creativity, giving the adults a chance to put their feet up, and enjoy a snack and a drink from one of the catering kiosks.

All this and more will be coming this coming February to Bramall Lane Stadium, in the heart of Sheffield.
