Brighton Bricks Shop Window Competition

Lego Shop Window Competition

I run Brighton Bricks an adult fan of Lego group and have an idea of a Lego Shop Window Competition to do sometime this year


The idea is shops in North Laine area of Brighton have a Lego Minifigure hidden in their shop window, we then encourage people to hunt for these figures, and mark down on a form which shop has the Batman figure in it etc.


This is a way to raise awareness of both Brighton Bricks as well as shops in the local area, which hopefully encourage people to visit your shop


At the moment it is an idea stage but want to know what shops maybe interested in taking part


Also if each shop could donate a very small amount we should have enough money to buy some good Lego Sets which could be prizes


If this is successful we could run it again, either in same area or different part of Brighton / Hove  


You can check out Brighton Bricks on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram  

Charity Lego Collection Drive in Brighton - Can you help?

As founder of Brighton Bricks, I am wanting to set up a Lego collection drive to donate to a children's hospital in Brighton. This is being organised with Fairy Bricks, a charity with the aim of Brightening the lives of sick children through Lego.

So to help with that, I am planning to organise a Lego drive in Brighton. What I am looking for is venues, be it a shop, cafe or community centre where people can go and drop off the Lego sets to. Depending on the venues, this could be a one day collection date, or over a period of time.

I will be tweeting, blogging, and trying to find any other way of promoting this to everyone and encouraging people to donate. I will also be producing a blog post giving ideas of what to donate. It needs to be brand new Lego (unopened for H&S reasons as it is going to an hospital) and the main themes to donate are Lego City, Creator and Friends.

So if you know of anyone who has a shop or cafe, or any other venue who would be willing to accept boxes of Lego please let me know at We can then talk about if we want a one day collection, or if a longer period would work for you. I can arrange to pick up boxes if it gets too many. We can have as many venues as possible

Brighton Bricks - 29th Sept Write-up

We had a great meet-up last night for the third Brighton Bricks event, held at the Alcampo Lounge on London Road  

The task this month was to create a logo / mascot for the group. Something which can be used to promote us, used on marketing materials like badges, t-shirts & of course Lego figures 

Below are some photos of our logo ideas, big thanks to Kevin who came up with the seagull idea. We want everyone to go away and build their own version of the seagull & letter B. So at the next meeting we can decide on which is best design & which one we going to use

The idea of the seagull & letter B represent both Brighton & Lego, something simple, but also something which can be customised & we can have special Christmas, Halloween etc  versions.





I so want one of these!!!!
