the DEEP

July 29 @ 9:30 am - September 20 @ 4:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:30am, repeating until 7th September 2019

the DEEP – a world premiere brick exhibition

This summer journey beneath the waves with our world premiere exhibition – The Deep – made with LEGO® bricks.

Bright Bricks have grown to become the world’s premier independent toy brick building firm. In The Deep, come face-to-face with a 1.75 metre yellow tuna fish – made of 13,000 bricks; a fearsome Mako Shark created with 80,000 bricks and a massive giant squid containing 120,000 bricks which is 2.7 metres tall.

An event not to be missed.

The Deep features hand-built LEGO® brick statues that have been devised to entertain whilst educating children and families about the incredible diversity of life in the Earth’s oceans, and about the major environmental issues that threaten their existence.

The world’s wildlife has halved in less than a generation and the oceans are struggling to cope with the growing pressures upon them. However science is clearer than ever before, awareness is at an all-time high and our commitments to saving our seas and the life within them are more ambitious, creative and innovative than ever before.

In the current and very serious world we live in, The Deep brings important sea life and habitat facts and statistics to life in a fun environment. The Deep hopes to motivate children and families to take an active interest in the fish, crabs, sharks and octopi that we share our blue planet with so many generations to come can enjoy these wonderful species.

Don’t miss our ‘LEGO® Make and Take’ workshops – family fun on selected dates from the end of July. Spaces will be limited, so pre-book your place on our website to avoid disappointment.

Saturday: 9.30am – 4pm (Last entry 3.30pm)
Sunday: 11.30am – 3.30pm (Last entry 2.30pm)
