LEGO fan events in the UK 2023

23 August 2022

Our LEGO fan events list is back for 2023! This list showcases the huge quantity and variety of LEGO fan events throughout the UK across the year. In the meantime, you may find our UK LEGO event list for 2022 more helpful.

This list contains events organised by LEGO User Groups (see our list of LEGO User Groups in the UK here), as well as individual and commercial organisers. We make this distinction to help both exhibitors and visitors pick events best suited to their requirements.

Check with event organisers before travelling to events.

As usual, we’ve tried to categorise events by a rough sizing to give you an idea as a visitor about the amount of displays and likelihood of LEGO-related activities being run at the event:

  • 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.
