Help create giant LEGO-henge in Corsham by donating blocks
Updated 1:04pm Thursday 19th June 2014 in By Staff reporter
A LEGO 'amnesty' has been launched by the Pound arts centre to build the biggest LEGO-henge ever seen in Wiltshire.
A spokesman for the centre said: "Do you have spare LEGO knocking around, not being used at home?
"Have you forgotten all about that old set you got for your birthday in 1994?
"If you have LEGO that’s just collecting dust then why not give it a new lease of life and donate to the Pound arts LEGO-henge project?
"We’re recruiting as many LEGO bricks as possible for a big community build of Stonehenge in partnership with LEGO.
"We need bricks; yellow figures and LEGO bases, no donation of LEGO is too big or too small!"
LEGO-henge will be built using the talents of artists and the public during the weekend of July 25 and 26 in the Pound arts centre at Pound Pill.
Anyone can call in to help, or to see donated LEGO being put to use over these two days.
LEGO-Henge will then stand on display in the arts centre over the summer.
Sophie Leighton-Kelly, deputy director (programming) of Pound Arts, said ‘We’re all really excited at the Pound about this project.
"It’ll be so much fun – a great communal activity for people of all ages.
"But we can’t do it without your help, please donate your unused LEGO and join us for the big build on Friday and Saturday, July 25 and 26.
"Children, parents, carers, grandparents and all ages are welcome to contribute Another Brick in the Wall!"
Pound Arts will also be screening The LEGO Movie on July 25 at 4pm and on July 26 at 11am and 4pm.
Taking part in building the LEGO-henge for free and no tickets are required.
Tickets for the film are £6 (£5 concessions) £3.50 under 16s and students.
Drop off your LEGO donations at The Pound box office by Sunday, July 20, where you can also book your tickets for the film.
