Last weekend Brick Alley LUG co-hosted the virtual LEGO show Bricks At Home with London AFOLs. There was a good cross-section of sessions across two days, and during the first slot on Sunday morning, I showed off my Ninjago District. All of the sessions were recorded, and you can see the full running order on the Bricks At Home archive page.
The London AFOLs held their annual Great Ball Contraption display last weekend at the London Model Engineering Exhibition at Alexandra Palace in north London. As usual, the adults loved it and the kids were entranced. Here you can see the complete layout.

Every month, my local LEGO User Group, the London Adult Fans of LEGO, meet in a pub near Euston to chat about LEGO, have fun and drink a beer or two. The theme of the latest meetup was LEGO Trains, so lots of members brought along tracks and laid them out in a huge winding layout on the floor. It was a bit dark for videos of that, but I took along a small loop of classic Monorail track and my custom orange train MOC. I set it up along with member Tim’s layout. He brought along lots more track and all three official LEGO Monorail trains: the grey and black Unitron train from the Monorail Transport Base (1994); the red Airport Shuttle, (6399 from 1990) and the white Futuron-era Monorail Transport System train (6990 from 1987).
Back in June 2018, my LEGO User Group the London AFOLs put on a display as part of the Caterham Festival. We made various life-sized objects from LEGO to put into local shop windows. The models stayed there for a month for a competition where local kids were encouraged to see if they could find them all to win a prize. I contributed four builds, three of which I still have made up. There was some jewellery (which got taken apart soon after the event), a light switch, a framed picture and my favourite – a tray of delicious-looking petits-fours which were placed in the window of the local bakery.
Frustratingly, I only have half of the article, but here you can see some of my custom BrickHeadz which were included in an article about the London AFOLs, the featured LUG in this month’s Blocks Magazine (issue 48).
