BRICKLIVE at Battersea Power Station
Ready, steady, BUILD! Brick masters from brick based live events company BRICKLIVE in the Park will be popping up at Battersea Power Station's Power Station Park on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th August from 10am - 5pm. The iconic building has inspired the latest replica build; a brick-by-brick community-led construction of Battersea Power Station. The resulting model will showcase historic chimneys and turbine halls – nodding to it having provided one fifth of London’s electricity in its prime.
Using 78,000 bricks the community-led build will stand at 2.2m long by 1.6m wide and 1.2m high (the size of an electric smart car) and anyone visiting can get involved by building their block section for the model. For inspiration, visitors will also be able to get up-close to stunning brick-based sculptures – a giant squid, Mystical Beasts a Pegasus and a Hippogriff and astronaut Neil Armstrong. For younger brick lovers a ‘sit on’ Duplo car and speedboat will be on hand for play and photo opportunities.
The event is completely free, there is no need to register or sign up. Just arrive and prepare to spend time exploring and enjoying one of London’s hidden regenerated landmarks, with plenty of options for snacks, picnics, and other refreshments. The brick models and build have popped up ahead of a London’s first family friendly BRICKLIVE in the Park – which opens in Battersea Park on 20 August and runs until 24 August. The Battersea Power Station build will transfer to the park.
For LEGO-lovers, you can also catch The LEGO Movie on Saturday 6th August at 2.30pm and The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part on Sunday 7th August at 2.30pm at Battersea Power Station's very own outdoor cinema Summer Showtime. Secure your tickets here.
