We headed to the Black Country in England’s West Midlands for a popular LEGO fan event this weekend: Black Country Brick Show 2024. Created by adult LEGO fans Ian and Paul, Black Country Brick Show has grown to be a crowd pleaser attracting LEGO models from across the country.

Hosted at Phoenix Collegiate in West Bromwich near Birmingham, the event features models from LEGO fan builders across the country, plus trade stalls and activities for eager hands.

Our pick of LEGO models from Black County Brick Show 2024

As usual, we’ve picked a few of the many models on display at this LEGO fan event – and if you missed out at the Black County Brick Show this year, it will return next year, and there are many other LEGO fan events listed for 2024 across the UK before then.

LEGO airport terminal and aircraft by Tom

Our first pick is this superb LEGO airport terminal and brick-built aircraft, created by teenage LEGO fan Tom and his dad. Not only is the aircraft beautifully recreated in LEGO bricks, rather than many larger elements, but the terminal building is full of detail – including a passenger trying to skip the queues by ducking under a barrier – and a working subway train connecting the airport with the nearby LEGO city.

Toni Lynam’s space rover

Toni’s display included numerous themed scenes, including this LEGO space exploration scene, but what really caught our eye was this LEGO space rover vehicle! The cab is built from a Vidiyo figure case – quite an obscure LEGO element, and hard to incorporate so readily in to a LEGO model, but Toni achieved it with a lovely Octan-themed flair.

Red squirrel by Georgia Hill

This pesky red squirrel LEGO model by Georgia Hill caught our eye at Black County Brick Show this year too. We love the literal bushy tail, built from foliage and a bush at the tip!

Thanks to Ian, Paul and Darren for their invite. A brilliant total of £13690.60 was raised over the weekend, split between Fairy Bricks and Birmingham Children’s Hospital!
