Lego lovers of all ages are in for a treat this spring as a new exhibition opens at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.

Between 7 April – 5 July, three galleries will be filled with Warren Elsmore’s amazing Brick Wonders exhibition, which opens just in time for the Easter holidays.

Using thousands and thousands of pieces of the much-loved plastic bricks the master LEGO artist and author has created more than 70 awe-inspiring models.

Under the theme of natural, ancient and modern Elsmore has recreated everything from the Great Wall of China, Niagra Falls and the Great Pyramid of Giza to a modern surgical operating theatre, incredible container ships and a hi-tech airport all in LEGO.

To celebrate the launch of the exhibition, which runs from April 7 to July 5, the Lichfield Street gallery is organising a day of family workshops called the Brick Wonders of Wolverhampton.

Anyone who visits the gallery on Saturday April 8 can create their own iconic Wolverhampton buildings or dress up as a LEGO character and get their face painted.

Five different Brick Wonders workshops are being held for anyone to drop in and enjoy from Bricktastic City, Mayhem Play-den, Superhero Dress-up, to face painting and the Brick-wonder gallery.

And it’s not just for children. Adults can escape the everyday in a grown up LEGO Lounge.

Tickets for the exhibition cost £4 adults, £2 children or £10 for a family of four and for fans of LEGO who want to come back and take a second or third look there is a special season ticket which is £6 adults, £3 children and £15 for a family ticket giving you three visits to Brick Wonders. Tickets now available from bit.ly/brickwonderstickets
