Sleeman Sports Complex to be transformed into LEGO heaven for BrisBricks fan expo

LEGO lovers can get their brick fix at a Chandler fan expo on October 5, 6 and 7.

Organised by adult LEGO community BrisBricks, the event will pack out the Sleeman Sports Complex with interactive displays and building areas for fans of all ages.

Thousands of patrons have passed through the expo doors since it started seven years ago and organisers predict crowds to increase this year.

The main attraction will be a giant train exhibit featuring LEGO versions of Brisbane buildings, Far North Queensland rainforests and outback scenery.

On Sunday and Monday from 9am to 10.30am the sound, movement and lighting of the displays will be adjusted to comfort people with sensory issues.

BrisBricks secretary John Worthington said the Chandler show would be the club's biggest of the year.

"It's a fan club so we love doing shows for the kids and adults," he said.

Long-standing BrisBricks club member Russell Bates and other LEGO fans will showcase personal collections and creations at the expo.

"The hundreds of hours spent creating a display for a BrisBricks expo is amply rewarded by the smiles on the thousands of appreciative fans of all ages," Bates said.

BrisBricks has about 200 members across the wider Brisbane area.

Public sessions will run from 9am to 5pm on Saturday, 10.30am to 5pm on Sunday and 10.30am to 3.30pm on Monday.

The club will also raise money for local kids' charities at the expo.
