Paper books are not coming back. Face it. A couple of the days ago the Sydney Morning Herald published an article saying that there was a resurgence in people buying paper books. “Books.

The Sydney Brick Show is returning to Town Hall for 2015 – which is a much better venue in my view. In a new two-day format over 18-19 April 2015 they “bring you our largest experience yet with over 2,500 sqm of LEGO® displays by fans from across Australia”.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $7 for 2-16 year-olds and, $35 for a family of four. They are available now through Ticketmaster.
If you are particularly enthusiastic, you can also buy a t-shirt. The t-shirts will be only available pre-sale up until six weeks prior and available for collection as you arrive at the show. Available in a wide range of sizes for kids, mens and womens styles.
The Show supports Bear Cottage and this year the organisers and visitors will be building a giant Bear Cottage Bandaged Bear: “Totalling a massive 50,000 bricks and standing almost 2.5m high we will be building the bear at the show. Starting Saturday morning, you can help us build giant LEGO® bricks out of the regular ones to assemble an impressive sight for all, the build will take place throughout the weekend until completion. But not to worry you will still be able to take your photo with a completed bear and our normal brick play area will be also available.”
There’s also, as usual, a LEGO building competition. All the details are on the Sydney Brick Show site.
