The trail will include locations such as Ponds Forge, Winter Gardens and the Sheffield Bricktropolis Interactive Building Zone, at the site of the former Google Digital Garage shop and Arctic Monkeys pop-up shop on Barker's 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 from 4–17 August, will allow people of all ages to follow a trail of world landmarks across the city.

The Interactive Building zone will be running free workshops for kids throughout the fortnight, with thousands of Lego bricks ready to be transformed into whatever their imaginations can conjure up.

Across the city, a programme of Sheffield Bricktropolis fringe events will also be taking place. Businesses across the city centre are putting together Bricks and Beer events, Lego film screenings, special Lego-themed products and more.

Families will be able to explore the diverse display of monuments, capital buildings and skyscrapers at various venues around the city using the Sheffield Bricktropolis trail map and app.

The models are all part of a Brick Architecture display specifically designed by Duncan Titmarsh of Bright Bricks, the only accredited Lego builder in the UK.
