The Calder Valley Brick Show took place in the village of Mytholmroyd (West Yorkshire) on 26th January and it was the third visit to the venue which was hit badly with the devastating Christmas floods of 2015.
With over 30 AFOLs – many from Northern Brickworks – and a wide variety of traders, it was great to be able to welcome over 1,200 visitors to the event. Shows which take place early in the year are often a worry that the “new” MOCs won’t be available but it was great to see so many models for the first time.
Here’s to the next shows organised by Bricktopia – www.brickshow.co.uk and here are some of the displays at Calder Valley:
Harry Potter display by Kevin, Krista, and Kendra
Built Of Loads and Loads of Colours – Impressive take on Concorde by Adam
Back in Kansas – the end of the yellow brick road, and it’s back to monochrome as Dorothy awakens from her dream. Builder is NB member Dave.
Impressive Saturn V display from NB member Chris.
Beautiful Zoo by NB member Fe. Loads of detail to zoom into.
Cars by Jim and Dave. Making one in every colour can turn into an obsession…
The NeuroBee from Paul and Lisa.
The Ultimate Collectors’ version of Orthanc!
Coliseum by Simon. Lots of detail – who knew the coliseum had a dungeon?
‘I’ll just build a castle’ said Robert…
