Free family fun competition. Adults, children, AFOL's - EVERYONE #legobuild #afol #legocompetition #covidfriendly

Join in the fun. People of all ages are welcome.

At SydLUG we are missing your smiling faces at our shows. So we thought we would swap the show idea around. Would you like to show us what YOU can build. There are three different build themes to choose from. You can enter as many times as you would like.

There are prizes to be given away to the best model in each theme, the winner will be displayed on our Facebook and Instagram sites, and you will receive 4 tickets to our next show.

April was busy for Sydlug with two shows in different locations on the same day!

Helensburgh Brick Fair

Our amazing contributors for the second annual Helensburgh Brick Fair brought a crowd of over 600 across the weekend, earning over $4000 for the Helensburgh Lions Club. This show was a huge success and we look forward to exhibiting at Helensburgh again in 2022. Like and subscribe to our Facebook page for details.

North Sydney Brick Fair

The North Sydney Brick Fair was also very successful and a venue we like to come back to time and again. With a large display space, we offer over 100 builds from club members and guests. There were many new creations to see. Our builders are always creating new models, so our shows are always fresh.

With over 1600 visitors over the two-day event, we are happy to announce that “Everything was awesome” and there were lots of smiling people. More Brick Fairs will be held in North Sydney. You can like and subscribe to our latest news and events.

Oz comic con pop up

Members of SydLug were very pleased to exhibit at Oz Comic Con Pop Up event on the weekend of 7 – 8 March 2021. Connecting with their own pop culture passions and enjoying two days of socialising with like-minded fans they were part of the immersive experience that only a Comic Con can deliver.

SydLug members often make the fusion between their love of pop culture references in their brick-builds.
