LEGO Newy 2013

Mon 1 Jul- Wed 31 Jul 2013

The wild and wacky LEGO competition is back! And this time it's all about sport...

Novocastrians love their sport. From rugby to surfing, cricket to croquet, netball to ten pin bowling, we are a sporting city. Imagine how much inspiration that is for Newcastle Museum’s LEGO Newy 2013 competition!
