2021 LEGO events and shows in the UK

1 January 2021

Bricks McGee list of UK LEGO events and shows 2021

It’s that time of year, again, somehow – time for our list of UK LEGO events for 2021! After a patchy year for 2020’s LEGO events in the UK – and around the world, too – we’re hoping 2021 brings some normality back to our LEGO-loving calendar.

Coronavirus / Covid-19 – many events are likely to be cancelled or postponed from March 2020 onwards; please check with organisers before travelling.

As of 2021, we also maintain a list of virtual LEGO events worldwide too.

A rough guide to the size of the LEGO event is given, based on the numbers of visitors per day. This is designed to give you an idea of the scale of the event, although we’ve found LEGO shows of all sizes to be enjoyable. With larger shows, you can generally expect to see more exhibits, and have more activities for visitors to take part in.

  • Small LEGO shows are estimated to attract 0 – 1000 visitors per day.
  • Medium LEGO shows are estimated to attract 1001 – 3000 visitors per day.
  • Large LEGO shows are estimated to attract 3001 – 5000 visitors per day.

We no longer list LEGO workshops at museums or travelling exhibitions of LEGO models, as these became too time-intensive to keep track of.

As always, check with the event organisers before travelling to events.
