Community Corner: Newcastle Brickfest July 13-14

Rainbow Bricks Presents NEWCASTLE BRICKFEST 2019, A LEGO Fan Event.

Rainbow Bricks is excited to be returning to Newcastle again on July 13th and 14th, 2019! Located on the New South Wales Central coast, Newcastle is approximately two hours north of Sydney.

While the show is still a couple of months away, applications are now open for exhibitors. For further details, you can find out at the event page at facebook.com/newcastlebrickfest – contact the organisers via the event page. Tickets are also available now at https://trybooking.com/BBHJK. All funds raised go back to local schools and charities.

Newcastle Brickfest is Newcastle’s first and longest running LEGO Fan event. It’s a community event, created by local volunteer LEGO fans, for LEGO Fans of all ages, showcasing LEGO creations and collections from across NSW.

Once again we are supporting Hunter Schools and Charities with the proceeds from this family friend, community event.

Original creations and displays of LEGO themes will impress and inspire kids of all ages. Interact with the exhibitors, ask them about their displays and LEGO in general. Plus we will have the always popular City Layout back again with working trains. As well as, all the displays, there will be lots of activities for everyone to enjoy on the day.

This year we have added Saturday afternoon sessions for those of you who can’t make it on the Sunday.

We are also being joined by our Cosplaying friends from the Hunter Heroes, the Saurus Squad and Star Wars Characters!

This is a family friend, not for profit event, which has been supporting Newcastle charities. Over the previous 5 years we have been able to donated $50,000 to schools and charities Newcastle Brickfest has supported.
