The Brickfest team at Port Stephens locals with a passion to share their Lego creations.

Brickfest is coming back to the Bay at the all new location of Anna Bay Public School over the weekend of 6-7 January, 2018.

This year Brickfest will be held with proceeds going to the Tomaree High School Robotics program.

Each year Brickfest contributes to a different cause in Port Stephens, Kevin Evans who is running the event got involved with Lego as a child, and again when his son started playing and learning with Lego when he was aged 5.

Kevin Evans “We got the tower bridge kit and it snowballed from there.”

He believes that anyone can build with Lego.

“Lego can be used for basic robotics, you can learn a lot from Lego and there is a certain amount of precision,” he said.

Brickfest will have displays of Lego that are hands off, but there are also speed building competitions and a build area for children to explore after they have viewed the displays.

Tickets for Brickfest are available at the door, children must be accompanied by an adult, however Brickfest is not an event just for kids as anyone aged 6-99 can enjoy Lego.
