Our UK LEGO event list is back again for 2019!

You can also read our list of LEGO events and shows in 2020 here.

The most noticeable change to the list this year is my attempt to categorise LEGO shows by their size, based on expected visitor numbers per day. This should hopefully give you as a visitor a good idea of the likely size of the show and help in deciding which of the growing number of LEGO shows to attend. LEGO event sizes are roughly defined as follows:

  • 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.
  • Huge LEGO shows are estimated to attract 5001+ visitors per day.

Clearly, this method isn’t going to be foolproof (from our experience it’s very easy to mis-judge the likely popularity of events – the weather, competing events in the area and many other factors all play a role!), but is designed to give you an idea whether a LEGO show is a “church hall” type show, or a larger commercial show in a conference centre.

The organiser of each event is also noted, where possible. Most LEGO shows in the UK are organised by LEGO User Groups (LUGs) – groups of like-minded LEGO fans.

As ever, these listings are provided in good faith; please check with the event organisers before traveling any distance to a show based on this information!
