Brick City Exhibition feat. Autism Friendly Brick City Sessions
See the world in LEGO® Bricks at New Lanark!
See the world in LEGO® Bricks as the iconic Brick City exhibition comes to New Lanark World Heritage Site from 28th June – 9th August 2017.
Brick City is a celebration of some of the world's favourite buildings and urban icons including the Colosseum in Rome, St Pancras Station in London and Arc De Triomphe in Paris recreated solely using LEGO Bricks. Brick City has been enjoyed by tens of thousands of visitors across the UK and now fans of LEGO young and old will have the chance to catch this must-see exhibition at New Lanark during the summer of 2017.
On Thursday 13th July and Thursday 3rd August the exhibition will be open exclusively from 9am-11am for families of children with autism and additional support needs.
The Autism Friendly Sessions will have a much lower capacity than the standard exhibition viewing times, meaning they will be much quieter and less crowded. New Lanark staff will also be undergoing special training to prepare for the sessions and allow them to offer the best visitor experience.
For those with autism who wish to attend the exhibition at other times, it’s advised they visit at 10am any day of the week during 28th June – 9th August for a quieter experience.
While to many, LEGO bricks are 'just a toy', to Warren Elsmore they provide a challenging and enjoyable modelling medium. Warren Elsmore, author and artist in LEGO bricks said “Brick City features landmarks built of LEGO bricks from all over the world, including ten World Heritage Sites, but this will be the first real-life World Heritage Site it has visited - and hopefully not the last!”
