Sheffield: Sheffield Bricktropolis – Outer Space Visitor Trail
17 August - 30 August
The Sheffield Lounge are happy to announce that we are 1 of 11 venues in Sheffield City Centre hosting 1 of 16 incredible Outer Space models on the fun interstellar trail.
The free intergalactic trail will run from 17 – 30 August and please note our Sunday opening times are 11am – 4pm and the Bank Holiday Monday opening hours will be 10am – 3pm (the banking facility will not be available on this day).
This year’s event will be out of this world when aliens, astronauts and space rockets will land in Sheffield as Sheffield BID brings back its hugely successful Sheffield Bricktropolis.
Building on the success of the World landmarks trail last year, this summer sees a new space trail join the Bricktropolis programme.
Celebrating 50 years of the moon landing, Outer Space is a visitor trail of galactic LEGO-brick models.
Families are invited to take part in an exciting space mission to discover planets, astronauts, rockets – and even a friendly alien from the farthest edge of the Green Spiral Galaxy!
Standing 1.9m tall, the Neil Armstrong model is made up of more than 57,000 bricks, while the 2.8m-tall Apollo 11 Saturn V rocket has 68,583 bricks. There will also be models of astronauts Yuri Gagarin and Valentina Tereshkova, as well as planets, the first flag on the moon, and various space vehicles.
