Hunter region LEGO® fans, prepare to be awed, because Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught is bringing his latest exhibition, Brickman Awesome, to Newcastle this September school holidays!
Newcastle Entertainment Centre (NEC) will host Brickman Awesome, Ryan’s third exhibition made entirely from LEGO® bricks, featuring 36 models, none of which have been seen in Newcastle before, and which took a mammoth 5,000 hours to build from more than two million LEGO® bricks.Tickets will go on sale at 11.00am Friday 11 September through Ticketek.
One of the most ‘awesome’ models in the exhibition is the world’s first life-size LEGO® Harley-Davidson, which will be showcased alongside a number of record-breaking models, including an enormous 3 metre tall Orca whale and the largest ever LEGO® Caterpillar 797 dump truck.
Visitors will be forgiven for thinking they have stepped inside a zoo, as they find themselves surrounded by a LEGO® kangaroo, koala, penguins and even a full-sized LEGO® Australian saltwater crocodile, weighing over 60kgs and built using more than 40,000 LEGO® bricks.
Brickman Awesome punters can take advantage of Ticketek’s world-leading partnership with Afterpay when they book in advance. Available via the Ticketek app or website, Afterpay is the world’s largest buy-now-pay-later service, offering fans greater flexibility to pay for tickets in four equal installments but securing their session with the first payment.
Following the enormous success of Brickman Experience’s Newcastle season in 2017 and to comply with COVID-19 protocols, booking online and in advance is strongly recommended to secure a preferred session time. Door sales will be possible, but subject only to session availability. The safety of patrons and staff is TEG Live and Brickman Exhibition’s top priority and Brickman Awesome will operate with a commitment to a COVID Safe environment. Brickman Awesome’s COVID Safe measures include capped number of visitors to all sessions; physical distancing measures in queues and sanitiser stations located onsite.
Due to COVID-19 protocols, the exhibition no longer has LEGO® building activities included.
