My child is on the Autism Spectrum. What can you tell us about the queues and crowds at your event?
BRICKLIVE Christmas will be popular with all fans of LEGO and we are expecting a lot of visitors.
Within the event, there will be a range of activities happening throughout the day. Some of these will involve queuing to take part in, but there will also be lots of areas dedicated to building and community building. Additionally there will be lots of exhibition areas where models are on display which won't have any queues, but that can get crowded as everyone wants to see the amazing things the Adult Fans of LEGO have created from their own imaginations. Ultimately, we know that every child with autism is different and we encourage you to consider what will work best for your family.
Will tickets sell out and why is it better to book in advance?
We cannot guarantee tickets will be available on the door for the session you want. Previous BRICKLIVE events have sold out, so please visit the BRICKLIVE website to purchase tickets in advance and avoid disappointment.
Can I see other events at Saatchi Gallery with my BRICKLIVE Christmas ticket?
