Chatham Historic Dockyard prepares to close Brick History exhibition

by Lauren Abbott

LEGO fans have until the end of this weekend to catch a popular exhibition in Kent.

Brick History has been at the Historic Dockyard Chatham since July.

But the exhibition, which depicts pivotal moments in history using more than 40 LEGO models, closes this Sunday (September 15).

And alongside models including Rochester Castle, the Underground, and the moon landing, there is an interactive zone for even more LEGO-themed fun, with soft bricks for little ones and original LEGO bricks for older children and adults to enable visitors to build their own models.

The final weekend for the historical exhibition is enjoying a fitting end - falling on the same weekend as the Dockyard's Salute to the 40s vintage festival.

Hundreds of families, many in period costumes, are expected at the riverside attraction this weekend to enjoy wartime reconstructions, period costumes, parades, vehicle displays, live music and retro gifts and fashion.

The event is running across both Saturday and Sunday (September 15 and 16) and also includes air-raid experience, a 1940s bombed out street and hundreds of re-enactors.

As a result of the Salute to the 40s event, which is a specially ticketed event in the Dockyard's calendar, ticket pricing is slightly different this weekend and annual ticket holders to the Historic Dockyard will need an additional ticket to attend.
