About us

We’re a club for like-minded Adult Fans of LEGO (AFOLs) to meet and display their LEGO creations across (but not restricted to) the North of England. We are recognised as a LEGO User Group (LUG) by the LEGO Group and we collaborate with other LUGs across the UK.

We are run by a small committee who are elected by the members.  Here is the current gallery of rogues…

Nate – Chairman
Nate is our Chairman; he is also a teacher in Worksop and came to prominence in 2017 when, with Steve Guinness, he won the first series of LegoMasters on Channel Four. Nate’s lego likes are Creator, Superheroes, City and allsorts!



Mark – Vice Chairman
Mark became hooked on the plastic bricks back in the late 70s as a child and never really stopped having an interest. Whilst relatively new to the LUG community, he’s keen to provide support and opportunities to others. Mark co-owns the Bricks4Kidz franchise in West Yorkshire and, through Bricktopia, organises a number of shows in the county.



Jim – Communications
Jim is the oldest chap in Northern Brickworks and remembers daleks before they could fly. He is trying to learn new tricks by coming to grips with WordPress, Twitter, & Facebook. So far, so good… Jim came out of his dark ages about 10 years ago, after getting interested in photography and acquiring his sons’ lego as they left home. His lego interests now include trains and modular buildings. Also zoos, golf courses and castles!


Thomas – Treasurer
Thomas looks after the money and the picture shows him in typical pose, relaxing with club funds. When building Thomas likes fantasy sets and the collectible minifigures, and he’s also known for combining lego and Dungeons & Dragons.



Richard – Ambassador

Richard is our Ambassador to the Lego group, who keeps us in touch with the news from Billund.  Richard is a teacher and scout leader who likes all things Lego – except technic. He particularly likes collecting ideas sets and architecture from places he’s been.
