Our round-up of Yorkshire Brick Show 2023 – LEGO fan event in York
Here’s the Bricks McGee round up of Yorkshire Brick Show 2023, held on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th April 2023 at York Racecourse.
Yorkshire Brick Show 2023 was held at York Racecourse in the middle of April this year, and it was nice to see the return of this event to the north of England.
Yorkshire Brick Show has appeared in quite a few guises across Yorkshire over the years, with events in Huddersfield and Wakefield previously, so it was nice to return to YBS in York!
If you missed out on this event, there are more LEGO fan events in Yorkshire listed on our 2023 events list.
As ever, here are our top 3 picks for favourite models at Yorkshire Brick Show – there was a surprising amount to see which was new to us – a novelty when you support as many community-run LEGO fans events as we do.
It was hard to miss this scene at Yorkshire Brick Show – just about every model, from cars to shops – was lit up! This brilliant scene features a street with embedded tram track, and a range of shops customised from LEGO’s own sets over the years. What really stood out was that even the emergency vehicles – the police cars, ambulances and fire engines – all had working blue flashing lights, ingeniously lit by magnetic contacts.
Beyond the lights, the display was full of vignettes and scenarios bringing it to life. We hope to see it again soon with what we’re told will be a working tram!
If you’re a fan of comedian Greg Davies or his TV sidekick Alex Horne, you’ll love this. We happen to be fans of both, and have been followers of the comedians-complete-silly-tasks format show Taskmaster for quite some time. This LEGO Taskmaster house therefore ticks two boxes – it’s a superb recreation by Matt Kirby of Brick Alley LEGO User Group.

This custom LEGO Adventurers template scene really caught our eye at Yorkshire Brick Show. It’s built to a really high standard, and is a fantastic expansion of one of those classic LEGO themes from days of yore – LEGO Adventurers. The scorpion near the small pond under the palm tree is beautifully done, and the temple itself makes great use of the stickers from the original sets to create a very atmospheric display.
Sadly, we didn’t catch the name of this builder – if you know it, let us know and we’ll update the post.
A big well done to Jo and the Brickshire team for organising a great weekend of LEGO in Yorkshire!
