Families looking for half term fun next week are being reminded about the hit LEGO exhibition at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.

Since the show opened at Easter hundreds of visitors have been blown away by Warren Elsmore's amazing Brick Wonders exhibition.

Using thousands and thousands of pieces of the much loved plastic bricks the master LEGO artist and author has created more than 70 awe inspiring models.

Under the theme of natural, ancient and modern, Elsmore has recreated everything from the Great Wall of China, Niagra Falls, the Great Pyramid of Giza, and Old London Bridge, to a modern surgical operating theatre, incredible container ships and a hi-tech airport - all in LEGO.

The Lichfield Street gallery is hosting the exhibition until Wednesday, July 5 and, as well as viewing the creations, visitors can enjoy building their own LEGO models in the gallery spaces.

Marguerite Nugent, Manager of Arts and Culture at the gallery, said: "It doesn't matter how old or young you are LEGO has an enduring appeal and this exhibition shows what amazing structures you can make with these little plastic bricks.

"While the exhibition does run until July we hope families will take advantage of the half-term break to visit us and enjoy this child and family friendly show."

Tickets for the exhibition cost £4 adults, £2 children, or £10 for a family of 4. For fans of LEGO who want to come back and take a second or third look there is a special season ticket, priced £6 adults, £3 children and £15 for a family of 4, giving you 3 visits to Brick Wonders.
