The opening of (a) Parliament
Wed, Jul 19th 2017 9:12p   Warren Elsmore
Pop quiz! What's the oldest continually running parliament in the world? Hint - it's not the UK but it is nearby....The oldest parliament in the world is in fact the 'High Court of Tynwald' - the parliament of the Isle of Man. In case you don't know, the Isle of Man is a small island nestled between the UK and Ireland. It's not part of either country but is instead a Crown Dependancy with Queen Elizabeth as head of state. Anyway, back to the LEGO! The oldest parliament in the world, called

Around this time last year, Teresa and I were in Portugal for the first Paredes de Coura LEGO fan weekend. Not their first event, but the first as a fully fledged hub event. Anyway, the event last year was fantastic. I'll be honest in that we had no idea what to expect, but whatever ideas we might have had were blown away by the hospitality, generosity and professionalism of the event. Obviously went back this year!As we left last year I offered to make the event a large-scale version of their

If you were in the Kennet Shopping Centre in Newbury last week - you can't have failed to notice this going on! Highclere Castle is the real life building that is used as the setting for Downton Abbey. A TV show that a few people have seen apparently!With the help of all the visitors, over the week Teresa and I assembled a large model of Downton Abbey, including more than a few windows and of course the towers on top. Check out the video to see how we got on!

Helter Skelter!

You might know it as a 'Skyslide'. Or perhaps not at all, because apparently these particular fairground rides are not common outside the UK. Well, our minifigs have got one on and they plan on enjoying it!The Helter Skelter wasn't an easy build, but it's the first building that I finished for The Backstage Tour. Circles in LEGO can be pretty tricky, but large cones even more so. To build this ride I first created the top part in a big ring. Underneath that (you can't see it now) are plates

OK, it's been a little while since we posted some news. But in our defence, it's been a busy year! We started by building the National Museum of Scotland, followed up with the amazing DFDS #LEGOShip, not to mention Brick Animals, Brick Cars'n'Trucks, Brick by Brick Space and Brick by Brick Dinosaurs. Oh, and launching the tours of Brick History and Brick Dinos. And of course Brick City and Brick Wonders carried on touring too. Phew!If you followed any of those links above (or in fact, if you
