Tickets are now on sale for this summer’s Brick Histories exhibition which recreates major historical events using LEGO® bricks.
Clydebank Town Hall is the first venue in Scotland to host this exhibition which will feature more than 50 major works such as the end of dinosaurs and the destruction of Pompeii.

With huge demand expected for tickets, visitors are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.
The family-friendly exhibition created by master modeller Warren Elsmore will include an interactive play area where kids can create their own masterpieces and a soft play brick area for younger visitors.
It will also be the first time the public will see inside the newly refurbished Bruce Street Baths which will stage the exhibition at the Clydebank Town Hall. The Council has invested £90,000 upgrading the historic ‘C’ listed baths, which opened in 1932, into a public space to support the ongoing development of the Town Hall.
Warren Elsmore, author and artist in LEGO® bricks, said: “We are very excited to bring this exhibition to Clydebank as part of our tour, and can’t wait to set it out in Clydebank’s historic surroundings. After spending 3 months building the individual displays they are getting great feedback from audiences in England so far. It is a great family exhibition as well as something impressive for LEGO® enthusiasts and I’m sure will be a big hit.”
Gill Graham, Manager of Libraries and Cultural Services at West Dunbartonshire Council said: "This is a fantastic exhibition and Clydebank will be the only place to see it in Scotland. As a result we’re expecting high demand for tickets and so it is really important that people book early to avoid disappointment.
“We’re delighted to be able to attract a national exhibition like this to the Town Hall and I think this just shows how the venue is going from strength to strength. It is also really exciting for the area to see the historic Bruce Street baths being reopened to the public so that everyone can enjoy this fantastic building again.”
Visitors can see ‘Brick History – The Tour’ at Clydebank Town Hall’s Bruce Street Baths Monday to Sunday 10am – 4.30pm, from Friday 16th June until 2nd September 2017.
