They proudly displayed their creations to delighted visitors as part of the Adult Fans of Lego fringe event in an empty retail unit in Barkers Pool.

Sheffield Bricktropolis will see 21 famous buildings built on the streets of the city centre - including Sheffield’s very own City Hall.

The event, which will run until August 17, will allow people of all ages to follow a trail of world landmarks across the city as well as take part in a series of fringe events.

The retail unit has now been transformed into the Sheffield Bricktropolis Interactive Building Zone, where there will be free Lego building workshop for children throughout the fortnight.

The festival has been brought to the city by Sheffield Business Improvement District a business-led, not for profit organisation to improve experiences, standards and add value for all city users.
