Islanders challenged to recreate local buildings in LEGO

Sunday 22 May 2022


Guernsey Museum has launched its Brick Bailiwick Challenge, inviting islanders to recreate iconic local buildings in LEGO bricks.

The challenge, which was inspired by the temporary exhibition of Brick City at the museum at Candie, is open to all ages.

Head of Heritage Services, Helen Glencross, said some entries may be displayed inside the museum. 

“It will be really exciting to see what Bailiwick models will be made by children or adults and, as we have a showcase available in a few weeks’ time, we would love to display some of them here at the Museum,” she said.

This initiative is organised in partnership with Island Families. It is open to everyone living in the Bailiwick and there are prizes to be won. There is no specified size limit, but some models may have to displayed as photographs if they are too large. 

Participants can apply by emailing a photograph of their model to museums@gov.gg before the deadline of midnight on 31 May.

Models and photos should be of your own making. Photos submitted may be used by Guernsey Museum & partners for publicity, broadcast or published by local media, printed and online.

For public enquiries about the challenge, please email the team on museums@gov.gg or call 226518.
