The free exhibition Brick Wonders will be at Glasgow Cathedral from 14 July, allowing visitors to the historic building to experience the seven wonders of the world through the medium of Lego.

The exhibition, created by Lego artist Warren Elsmore and team, also includes portrayals of scientific discoveries from the Big Bang Theory to DNA, and recent history from mobile phones to the moon landings.

Glasgow Cathedral is the latest stop for Warren Elsmore’s touring LEGO exhibitions. During the Year of Young People, Historic Environment Scotland (HES) is taking the Brick Wonders and Brick History exhibitions on tour to a number of historic sites throughout Scotland until January 2019.

Showcasing history

Rebecca Bailey, Head of Education & Outreach at HES, said: “We’re delighted to bring this popular touring exhibition to Glasgow Cathedral."

“LEGO bricks are unique in their appeal, having been a top-selling toy for over fifty years so it’s great for us to be able to showcase history in such an engaging way."

“The artistic Brick Wonders display instantly piqued the interest of our visitors at Aberdour Castle and Abroath Abbey, and we’re sure it will also be a big attraction at Glasgow Cathedral for young people - and big kids too.”
