Bookings will be for 1 hour session with a limit of 1 booking per day per family.

You will have 2 build options: Printable Flyer

  • Free build – Build whatever you would like, wherever your imagination and creativity will take you. We have some books that you can use for ideas.
    • We do have a farm building set with large building bricks made for small hands perfect for the little ones.
  • Brick Master Challenge – Pick an envelope but don’t open it yet, set your timer to 30 minutes and race against the clock to build according to the theme in the envelope.

We will provide a polaroid camera to take a photo of their creation as they can’t take the bricks home.

We ask that participants are not to bring or use their own building bricks – we can’t take responsibility for giving it back and it disadvantages those who don’t own building bricks.

Children under the age of 10 will need an adult with them for the duration of the booking.

If they wish to enter the competition there is a limit of 1 entry per child.

They will need to write their first name, age, name of creation, contact number, parent/ guardian signature on an entry form along with a polaroid photo and hand into the library counter.

The competition starts on 26th of June 2021 at 9:30am and ends on the 10th of July at 12pm.
Winners will be notified and announced on Tuesday 13 July 2021.
