Sheffield Bricktropolis returns to Sheffield city centre between Saturday 6th and Sunday 21st August.

This year's event includes a fantastic visitor trail of dinosaur-themed sculptures (the Brickosaurs), an interactive play zone, giant mosaic builds and an amazing AFOL (Adult Fans of LEGO) and activities designed to delight LEGO (and dinosaur) fans of all ages!

The Brickosaurs - 6th to 21st

August Sheffield BID invites you to undertake an 'Expedition of Extinction' across Sheffield city centre to discover amazing creatures from a land that time forgot. The Brickosaurs trail, delivered in partnership with Brick Live, takes you on a journey through time with 15 dinosaur-themed brick models. The trail includes a 2m tall Velociraptor and a Parasaurolophus measuring over 3m in length. There are also two dinosaur ‘selfie zones’ along the route. To find all 15 sculptures you will need to get your hands on an official trail guide. Copies of the guide will be available from 'Explorer Central', on Surrey Street (next to the Winter Garden) from Thursday 4th August, priced at £1 per copy.
