Lego and Beer! – A Lego workshop for grown ups @ Weston Museum
Jun 20 @ 18:30 – 20:30
Why should kids have all the fun? Come along and join in with some Lego building that is just for grown ups, led by the brilliant team from Gincandescence.
 
Enjoy a selection of local beers and wines, plus spirits, from our bar, whilst building all sorts of crazy creations from a mountain of lego available for you to rummage through. There will also be lots of snacks available should you feel peckish.
 
There will be contests and awards on the night for those of a competitive nature, but if you just fancy letting your imagination wander, then that’s fine too.
 
This event is for ages 16 and upwards, but you must be 18 to enjoy the alcohol (we have lots of soft drinks too). The museum operates a Think 25 policy, so we may ask for ID.
 
£4 per person (this covers your lego building activities, but sadly not your bar tab, sorry!).
 
To book a place (numbers are limited), just pop in to the museum or call us on 01934 621028.
