The Sydney Brick Show 2019
6th & 7th April 2019, Penrith Panthers Exhibition Marquee
Join us for Sydney’s Biggest and Best LEGO® Fan Event
Sydney’s premier LEGO® fan event is returning in April for it’s 8th consecutive year, this year at Penrith Panthers Exhibition Marquee. The Sydney Brick Show is a community event created by volunteer LEGO® fans for LEGO® fans of all ages, show casing unique LEGO® creations from over 100 Australian and New Zealand AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO).
For tickets and information, please visit our website: www.sydneybrickshow.com.au
First held in 2012, The Sydney Brick Show is a not-for-profit LEGO® event, presented in support of NADO (Nepean Area Disabilities Organisation). Learn more about this important local service at www.nado.org.au
Since 2012 The Sydney Brick Show has raised over $110,000 for 5 charities. Our 2018 event raised over $22,000 for NADO, and we hope to surpass this amount in 2019, to contribute further to their important local services:
‘NADO was thrilled to be the recipient of funds raised through the efforts of the Sydney Brick Show in 2018. The donation to NADO of over $22,000 will assist in the refurbishment of our new respite facility due to open in April 2019. The fit out will include bathroom renovations for easier access, a ramp to the front door and new flooring throughout. As an organisation committed to developing services that support people with a disability and their families, donations such as this, make a real difference to the creation of needed services in our community.’ Linda Wilson, NADO
