While the big shows get a lot of the attention you can have just as much fun at a smaller show that supports a local cause. This weekend LEGO fans in Canberra have a chance to attend one of those shows with the return of Bricks @ The Woden School.

Presented by CLUG and the Woden School Parents & Citizens Association the event will feature plenty of exhibits from talented Canberra builders.
Tickets to the event are just $3 for children and $5 for adults. A family ticket is available for $10. No need to pre-purchase tickets online as they are only available at the door.
The event runs from 9am to 4pm on both Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th of March 2017 and is held at the school (127 Denison St Deakin).
