ExCeL Centre, Custom House Friday December 11 2015 - Sunday December 13 2015

Since it was first manufactured in Denmark in 1949 Lego has become both a firm playtime favourite and an arch nemesis of the bare foot. With over 48,000 Lego lovers attending the event last year, the three day celebration returns for 2015 with workshops from professional brick builders and Lego designers, a brick market place (where you can pick up new and second hand Lego), impressive displays from around the world, and Guinness World Record Attempts. Themed areas should provide some inspiration for visitors who will have opportunities to do some building themselves. Just don’t take your shoes off. Last year's event sold out in advance, so be sure to snap up a ticket quickly online

What a rip off! We paid £38 each for VIP tickets and basically paid to get into a marketing site. Miserable people sitting there basically selling Lego and some displays with stuff we're all seen before. Sullen teenagers behind desks chatting with no joy, interaction or fun element. We left after 20 minutes! I feel so so sorry for all the children that came. One stall was running a tombola like something from a car boot sale with signs scribbled in biro pen on torn up paper bags. Shame on the organisers. I'll be wiring to get my money back! Total tosh. If I could give it minus stars I would.

One of the worst days out I have ever had. A total marketing ploy, hardly anything to do and you will queue fir at least one hour to do anything oh and queue to get out. Security wouldn't even let my disabled father out to use the toilet and made him walk the length of the event to get out via the one and only exit. Rude people, hardly any interaction. Would never ever go again shocking treatment.

Very disappointing day. I asked my 5 year old son, what was your best part of the day he said "the lego magazine" that I had to buy... The whole thing was a massive marketing exercise. My 7 year old could not wait for the minecraft stand, but he was very disappointed as all they had was a glass cabinet display no bigger than a shoe box. You could make your own minecraft lego scene but by the time we got there the person running the stand told me most people have stolen the main characters.

Waste of time, don't waste your money.

I went to this with my 3 year old and to be honest it was very disappointing. Sure there was some Lego but hardly enough to play with given the mass of people attending . Each Cornor was just a marketing exercise.

The highlight , I bought some Lego which I could of done anywhere without paying 30 pounds just to go inside

Just go to a Lego shop

I was interested in going to this with my son until I saw the rip-off prices. This is an advertising exercise for God's sake, how can they justify charging theatre level entrance?

Frustratingly I read the reviews below after my wife had bought five tickets for us and kids.

None of the reviews so far go anywhere near what an absolute disgrace this event was. 

Lego should be totally ashamed of the disorganised overpriced exploitation of the parents and children attending. I question the integrity of the organisers and sponsors of this chaos.

I am not allowed no stars on this site if I could I would give it minus 5 stars
