Brickvention 2023 is only 2 weeks away. Australia’s Premier LEGO Fan Event has been at the mercy of public health orders over the last couple of years, with an online event and another at an alternative venue: This year they are back at the heritage listed Royal Exhibition Buildings on the norther fringe of the Melbourne CBD.
Tickets are now on sale for the Public Expo of 21-22 January 2023. The opening session on Saturday Morning has sold out, with the other Saturday and Sunday Morning sessions filling up fast.
Sunday Morning opens with a Special Needs session – The session environment includes low volume and less frequent announcements and fewer people. The session is also longer, with 40 minutes before the next session is admitted.
Are you likely to be in Melbourne during the weekend of January 19-20? Why not come along to Brickvention, Australia’s Premier Convention for LEGO® Fans. As well as amazing trains, towns, roller coasters Great Ball Contraptions and other models made by LEGO builders from all over Australia, there will be a huge minifigure swap, in conjunction with the LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre in Melbourne, as well as the build zone to play in.
International visitors this year will include You Tube Fan Favourites, John and Josh Hanlon from Beyond the Brick.
The event will again take place in the beautiful Royal Exhibition Buildings, in Carlton, from 9am-5pm (Saturday) and 9-4 pm (Sunday). If you are planning to attend, you can book timed session tickets now, by following this link. Tickets start at $9 for children, and $18 for adults.
The Organising committee have given the The Rambling Brick a few passes to give away over the next couple of weeks. There are several ways to win.
