BIG kids have the chance to find out more about the wonderful world of Lego.

Northern Brickworks Lego club is holding a first-of-its kind event in Sunderland’s Bede Tower in Burdon Road, on Saturday between 10am and 4pm.

Attractions will include part of a 350,000 brick model of Durham Cathedral and one that organiser Robert Martin, of High Barnes, made of Sunderland Magistrates’ Court.

He said: “It is the original childhood toy – something you liked to play with as a kid that you now have the budget to do yourself.” Lego traders will also be there, along with charity Fairybricks, which raises money to buy Lego sets for children’s hospitals and hospices.

Admission is £2 for adults, £1 for under-16s and £5 for a family ticket of two adults and two children.
